With the help of The Modfather....well I should say I filmed while Jack did all the work lol, we put together a clutch install video on my Yamaha Grizzly 450 for everyone. Hope you guys like the videos and keep in mind this tech video will apply to the whole Yamaha Grizzly lineup. Thanks Jack for taking part in this and for showing me around your neck of the woods, I hope to do it again once I change out the tires.

Edit: I have uploaded a new version of this video. It is now just one video and has a bit of the info that was originally edited out due to time constraints....


Okay so here is a little outake video I threw together. It's short and is really just us messing around as everything went pretty smooth. Jack did a great job with everything and I know it must have been a little hard with me messing around with him so much but he kept plugging along....lol

I marked the video NSFW due to my childish antics and of course some cursing.

I like part in part 2, "DO NOT USE IMPACT TO REMOVE NUT FULLY OR PARTS WILL GO FLYING" Then 2 seconds later "Well parts are off now" LOL

The video was great and I definately liked the part where you tested it in neutral. I never really understood how the clutch works.

The evel one

Butcher once again you've produced an excellent video, Brother it's excellent..Hoping to hear the top end is all there as well. I'm planning this mod myself in the near future. Also thanks for the music...it complimented the video very well...

Jack that was a great tutorial....great mechanical skills there as well. A job well done...I'm sure Butcher is well pleased with the results. Thanks for pioneering this set-up. I really dig the no grease set-up and less rotational mass is great too...I'm just sayin"thedevil1thedevil1thedevil1

As expected, another flawless production from Butch450! Great job Butch!
Jack, excellent commentary and, not surprising, a great job on the mod!

This should be very helpful to all those interested in a similar setup or even those just looking to learn.

Thanks guys...wonderful!:You_Rock_Emoticon:

Due to limitted time I was unable to put alot of Jacks explainations into the videos. The 660 and 450 are a little different as far as the amount of threads and he thought he had a little more room prior to that happening. That was the only thing that didn't go perfect on the first take and the 3 of us (Jack's friend Rick was also there) got a real good laugh from it.

I knew you would like my music choices....lol. I will let you know by Sunday night about top end.

And Diz I can't stress enough what a great job Jack did with this install. It's not every day that you have a camera shoved in your face , but Jack managed to make it all look easy. I give him alot of credit for putting himself out there for the world to see. (well maybe not the world but you know what I mean) I have no problem grabbing some face time but I know very few people who would have the balls to do what he just did and do a great job of it also.

Butch and Jack. Top notch install tutorial. You guy's did an outstanding job. With this video to refer to I may not have to convince Jack to take a trip here when I get ready to do mine.

Excellent video production Butch. And excellent job with the tutorial Jack.

This is a great step by step, it definitely gives the user who is considering this modification the confidence to go forth and do it no matter what the skill level.

Nice job Butch on the video production!
Knowing what we did and didn't do makes this video really cool because your
edit work came out really good.

Too bad there wasn't a magic filter on the lens to make me look better - rotfl

As for the nut on the secondary - let me explain - Do as I say, Not as I do!
Anyway - with all the production on the video (angles, light, sound, ect.) I really didn't
pay the proper amount of attention to that spring removal. It is much safer to break the nut loose
with the gun and complete the removel with the spring compressor in the opposite steps as the install
showed me putting it on.
That being said - it can be done the other way as well..............

Thank you both for such an informative video. I think it will become the standard for anyone trying to do this mod.

Oh - I forgot to mention that Butch is a real nice guy and it was a pleasure to
work with him on the both the mod & the video.
Butch and I have rode together several times and sometimes o nthe forum we kid each other
(both up front & back handed) but it's just that - kidding.
It was a pleasure to help out a friend and get his install done for him.

Now Jay - I see you have a request as well - Exactly how much is a round trip plane ticket..........rotfl

Great instructional videos guys. Thanks to both of you for putting that together. I got back my primary from Mike a couple of days ago and still waiting on my weights/sliders from UTV. Now I know exactly what to do and Not to do. haha. Definetly have to watch out for that spring!

I did use it.....Were both way uglier in person then on the video .....couldn't you tell :laugh1:

I think the install took about 2.5 hours but that was cause we were messing around and filming. Could probrably be done in under 1.5 hours if your as good as Jack. The videos took about 10 hours total to put together but I am sre you were just asking about the install :laugh1:

I updated the original post and added an outake video. More just of us talking and playing around, not any screwups as their were'nt any...well the 2ndary spring but that's the only one and even that I wouldn't consider a screw up. :s_bye2:

Also show Jack a little love by giving him some thanks in one of his posts, cause without him this video wouldn't have happened. thanks

Added a link to this thread in the "official" clutch mods thread. Once again, great stuff and I thought Jack was a natural in front of the camera! :clap:

Great job guys, did an excellent job of explaining and going through the procedure. One thing i will add, just have to be careful reving without the primary cage hooked up, as ive read people bending the shaft while testing the clutch (dont know if it applys to the 450 or not as it doesnt bolt on.) That ratchet strap idea for holding the primary for torquing is great, will definitely do that next time. :D

Thanks Nick!
I did mention that sometime during the proceedure, but it didn't make the video.
I think that if the bike were in gear and stress was put on the shaft from the drive
train it would be more of an issue, but just to test it out shouldn't be a problem - JMO.

As for the rachet strap - it needs to be tight; if it slips - you can slip a strip of rubber between the belt and the sheave to help hold it in place.
The same proceedure can be used on the secondary sheave if the belt is installed and you anchor the rachet strap up front. We didn't show that because I know what my impact gun will do and I'm sure that
nut was just a bit past the required 70 ft. lbs.

Anyway - Glad you liked it - Thanks!

Unfortunately I had to edit out alot of info Jack was giving. I didn't want to have to put up 6- 10 minuite vids cause everyone's attention span is different and I wanted to make sure everyone would be able to sit through the whole thing. As it is now the vids are over 16 minuites total length but it's a fast watch and keeps you interested in watching, at least I think so. There were a few points where I made sure to leave in his commentary due to the difference between models he was describing. And Jack did say you shouldn't go full blown with the cage off but I think it was when I was goofing off and flipping every one the bird in the outake vid. :angel:
