Hi Walt

I'm curious about the care and/or life of the Yamaha wet clutch. I recently purchased a brand new 2011 Rhino and almost immediately installed the JBS Hot Rod sheave. Barely have 100 miles on the machine, still stock tires and everything except for sheave and overhead stereo.

I'll admit, one of the big motivating factors in doing the sheave was the lower starting ratio because I'm scared of smoking my wet clutch.

I like to ride in the river and in the creek sand and in the mud- lots of slow speed riding and starting and stopping that probably puts a load on the engine and transmission... and wet clutch. Walt, how durable are these things?

Is there any way or tricks you know of that help the wet clutch blocks and drum live longer? Any knowledge or advice you can share would be great.

Thanks
Chris

sure thats easy...and its really no secret, the less you slip the clutch, the longer it lasts..just like a car.

Here's a tip that can help "when you're running slow, run in low" . That tip can help ensure minimum stress and torque on the wetclutch...
Just like trying to start off on your 10 speed in high..its hard...
