Default Changing primary clutch spring?

I have to change my primary spring and I don’t have the proper tools yet, I have the puller so the clutch will be out of the sled. I was wondering if any of you do this without the right tools and how do you accomplish this safely without hurting your self!
Thanks

I've done it without the tools. Although I do have a clutch puller, worth it's money too. I've changed primary spring without removing it from the crank too. Evenly back out the bolts holding the cover on and it will loosen it enough there isn't much tension left. Switch the spring and put back together.

Agreed its a bitch but it can be done... just dont strip the bolts out that hold the cover on.....
you can make your own spring compressor... its not really that hard.

After I pull it a part I am thinking I will make some thing rather than buying it. can’t be all that hard….. some ready rod and some nuts and washers should work but I will see when I take it a part. thanks new smiley had to use it!

Hold on here!
We are talking about the primary spring"right"!
You don't need any special tools other than a primary clutch puller to change the spring.
Even like some of the other guys said, you can change it right on the sled with no problems.
Now if were talking about the secondary, thats a differant story. You could and should use a compression tool but you could also do it if you had a second set of hands. You can do it by yourself but its a real pain in the ass to get the locking ring back in.
Good luck
Let us know how it goes!!!

^^ you are correct we are talking about the primary, i am going to change the weights and the spring so i will pull the primary off the sled. the secondary you need a second set of hands for sure that c-clip is a strong one, also don't forget to preload the helix and the spring before you put it back together : as i forgot that on the first time i did it..... live and learn! i will take a couple of pic's of my progress, i also have to rebuild my waterpump which i sould have done when i rebuild the motor last year. oh and theres another one of those live and learn crap lessons

you need a 7/16 socket to change the spring and a 3/8 socket and allen wrench set to change the wieghts. 15 minutes total for both.

Default Changing primary clutch spring?

Well the job is half completed pulled the clutch off and opened her up…man that was easy thanks for the replies! I had a buddy over that wanted to hear the old beast roar, so after that it took me half an hour and a couple of beers to get him to help me. I see now that the dealer just wanted easy money lol. Now to put it back together! I have a couple pictures to put in the how to section

What do you guys think about this. I have the low rpm slp pipes and there clutch set up but I kind of like the helix that I have it’s a Dalton 48/36 progressive. I like this helix for the back shift and the slp one is good for point and shoot but it a logical helix 42/34 I am wondering if any buddy might have some spring and weight suggestions to run with the 48/36 helix. I was running this helix with a blue orange secondary spring and blue/white with 10-60 gram weights that where modified on the top. my one problem was when you hammer on the sled it will not rev past 7700 RPM but when I would back off and get into it slower she would pull hard all the way to 8300 RPM like it should.
Thanks again for the help..

Maybe you need a little bit lighter spring in the secondary or move the anchor to a different hole.
Which one is it in now, the middle one?

When I changed to the Pro-4 clutch, I had to move the anchor to the next forward hole to get the peak rpm's into the right range.

put a polaris silver blue in the secondary clutch with the dalton helix, hole 3. and you might be dropping wieghts to 10-58,s but thats ok you will rev a little quicker with the lighter wieghts.
