If you're someone who's familiar with the Polaris Ranger Crew clutch system, you might be aware of the debate surrounding leaving the primary clutch on instead of pulling it. Although a lot of people in the know encourage leaving the primary clutch on, some people believe that pulling it is the only way to go.
Assuming that you choose to leave the primary clutch on, you'll need to pull the top plate with the six bolts and the pull spring. As you do this, the section with the weights pushes back. You'll then need to remove the belt, which will have a lot of spring tension, so be prepared for that.
While clutch tuning might not be a necessary step, it's certainly a fun one. However, if you're hearing popping sounds as you touch the gas or if the clutch is grabby on takeoff, a Gilomen tune and clutch kit is definitely necessary. This kit will give you smoother low-speed engagement, along with more power.
If you're concerned about installing a tune and it potentially going against the rules of an extended service contract or warranty, you can simply install the original ECM back into the Ranger before having any work done on it.
