1995 Arctic Cat 580 Ext Clutch Probs

My friend has an arctic cat 580 Ext and the driven clutch has slack in it. you can move it left and right about 1/16 if an inch. I was wondering if thats just shim problems or what? The snow is getting closer and it needs to get fixed. I dont know any about clutchs. He took it up to Triple E in Orion and they were supposed to look over the sled and check everything but they missed that.

They didn't miss it. That play is there to help "self allign" the driven clutch. Leave it like that. If you take the play out of it you will start to use up belts real quick.

If your talking about the secondary clutch (larger) then the in out play is ok. If your talking the primary (small) clutch then you have a problem.

The sled will go only 28 or 32 mph not 30. It like to shift so you cant keep it at 30mph. I dont know what to do. Thanks for the secondary clutch help too.
