Belleville Clutch Spring Preload - X, Y, Z positions

Recommended Posts

Hey all, just looking to confirm some research I've done regarding the belleville clutch spring, and the different hole positions you can use on the retaining ring (to get a different amount of preload).

 

X position   ->   lighter clutch pull, but more likely to slip under load

Y position   ->   stock setting

Z position   ->   heavier clutch pull, but better engagement

 

Can anyone confirm that the above is correct? Or do I have the X & Z positions mixed up? I'm running my timbersled on my 300 xc-w this year, and want the strongest clutch engagement so there's no slippage under load.

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

Your data is correct.

 

If you want you can use a 450 bellevile that is little stronger and makes the clutch more agressive.
