    2013 clutch wont spin either way. UPDATE Its official blew a 2013 clutch

    So I just swapped superchargers today and I noticed my clutch is locked up and won't spin in either direction. Has this happened to anyone? I just installed a r&d superclutch to protect the new clutch but I have a feeling this is now my only clutch...... Any suggestions?

    Remove the supercharger and see if the clutch spins at all. It should spin freely. If it doesn't the sprag gear teeth may be jammed internally in the clutch assy.

    I noticed it when I had the supercharger off. It used to spin freely in one direction and now its locked spinning the gear if I turn it in either direction. I've been riding it for a little while and I never noticed any boost spikes or a hint of a problem. Maybe because I have a good blowoff valve?

    Its official just took the ski out to see if I noticed any difference. Ski ran great for one minute at 13lbs of boost at 7700 rpm, then I brought it back close to the ramp and nailed it from a dead stop n there she went. 0 boost. Guess I'm changing a clutch now.... Soooo......who got one?

    Going to see if the dealer will warranty it because they only installed it 12 hours ago. BTW this is the 3d clutch this machine has eaten within 72 hours
