2013 vs 2014 clutch basket

Recommended Posts

So the 2014 brochure says a new "bowl" was added to the clutch in 2014 450's but when I look up the part numbers, they are the same between 2013 and 2014 450 models. Anyone have any insight on this? Trying to figure out if there is a difference. A dealer once mentioned to me as well that the clutch basket was improved in 2014 but he may have been going by the brochure.

I recently upgraded the inner clutch hub in my 13 450 XC-F to the 14 part. Here you can see the difference. image.jpgimage.jpg

The part number for the 2013 has been superseded by the 2014 part, that is why they now share the same part number. If you order one for you 2013 you will get the new part.

Actually meant to post back... Talked to my dealer buddy again and yes, it's the hub that's an issue, not the basket. The hub has indeed been updates for 2014. I ordered the 2014 hub and spring for my 2013. Should be pretty much equivalent now to a 2014 other than the porting on the heads and the 4CS forks.
