Anyone set their clutch up like the CRF450R dirt bike. We've done that for the TRX450R that we MX & it seems that the same can be done to the TRX700XX clutch as well. Just wondering!:xx:

Don't know much about clutches what do you mean?
The CRF450R bike & TRX450R quad have thew same clutch basket set up & basically the same plates/fibers except that the quad has 1 thin fiber & a couple of judder springs. We just set the TRX450R up like the dirt bike & it works better. Seems, from the parts break down, the TRX700XX can be done the same way.

What's the advantage or disadvantage of this?

The CRF and TRX450r are differant baskets.The CRF has cushions fitted and TRX does not.
I removed the judder springs/ half plate in the xx and fitted a 450r fiber plate , 12 months ago and never had any issues. It has a better feel with this setup.

Hey Amigo, sound like you done just what I'm looking to do to my 700XX. They all (CRF450R/TRX450R/TRX700XX) have the same basic "main" disc so getting rid of the judder springs just make for a better clutch feel for sure.

As for the clutch baskets, they are the same...have used the TRX on the CRF & the CRF on the TRX.:thanks:

What do you mean as in better feel? Like easier to pull or engage quicker?

My clutch seems to be slipping when I go from 4th to 5th. Sometimes is like it won't go into 5th.

If I go with this set up. do I remove number 8 & 4 from the 700 pic and a number 5 & 6 from the 450 pic. This will be my first attempt working on a clutch. The 450 pic has two #5, two #6, and one #22 which means I will have 5 plates instead of 3 on my 700. Is this correct?

Does this eliminate the awful clutch noise at idle in neutral (more noticeable when cold)? Clutch pulled in while in neutral sounds fine, Clutch not pulled in while in neutral noisy.

THANKS for the quik response Baxter. I will go ahead and order the part.

RaVxX, In such a big hurry to cut someone down!

The book says add 1.8 and others found out that if you add 2.0 or 2.1 that it helps with the cluch issues. I checked my oil to see if I loss any fluid. I was only putting in 1.8 qts and it reads full. When I change my oil next I will add the full 2 quarts like others suggested.

When something begins to not run properly thats when I start researching and checking everything.

When do you start checking out your motor and clutch...after it breaks?

Explain to me Sonny (RaVxX) when and how I should check my quad?

His account was messed up, he said he could'nt log in so i told him i will ask, and i did check the map section, theres no downloads for the set up he has and Dynojet didnt have a download for his set up, i thought mabe with some luck someone would of been running a set up very close i could get to put him in the ballpark of not running to rich or lean.


Its all taken care of now thou, he got the same set up i have and the correct map, but his clutch is slipping//burned, Alba clutch kit on the way, i will be doing the same thing down the road.


And yes i check my oil every other ride, when i change it, i put 2 quarts in, warm it up, and then add .25 more and its perfect.
