    Clutch just went? whats the best route to go?

    So i was doing some prop testing on my 00/09 gprsho and blew my clutch. the ski has a c3 wheel and r3 reflash, ext intercooler, seadoo pump, and other things. i have been reading every thread on clutchs trying to find out the best route to go but none of the threads are very recent. i would like to know what is the safest way to go without another failure. can i just slap in a superclutch and go or do i need other parts. i have read the how-to and know i need the gaskets and such. but what does the new clutch come with? can i just buy a replacement clutch and call it good? any help would be great. Another question is, could heat be a cause in these clutch failures?

    Your best route to go is a new 2011 clutch assembly

    and Riva dampner

    This is holding up extremely well. Dustin Farthing is running this combo with the new Vortech V50 supercharger and has had no clutch failures. I'll post more about this today.

    I slapped just the clutch in mine. I couldn't spring for the dampener, wife would have shot me.

    Side note what oil were you running when the clutch went?

    If you run an oil with friction modifiers the clutch will have reduced life. Most guys run either yama lube or amsoil marine oil without friction modifiers. The clutch itself works using friction, reduce friction and it will will have a tendency to slip and I'm turn will wear out the clutch faster.
