Im looking for some examples, photos, or suggestions for making a clutch guard.:h This if the first hood I've ran without side pannels ( one piece body) Should it be fully enclosed or vented somehow? I would appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks,
Tyler

1. (Mandatory in all classes except Stock where it is recommended.) The clutch cover must be separate of cowl configuration and cover clutches down to center of clutch bolt or below. Must be .060 inch, 6061T6 aluminum or equivalent steel material and be covered with 6 inch wide belting. Snowmobile with removable side panels may bolt clutch cover to side panel to meet this requirement.

What type of "belting" is considered acceptable? What must it be made of? leather? rubber? Kevlar??

Tyler, I might have one you can have, I will look. It was on a Hooper Champ I had, I built a new one when I got it. I will see if I can find it tomorrow in the shed and I will let you know.

Claude are you allowed to drill holes in the clutch guard and belting? If so how many holes are you allowed and how big can they be? Since the guard is supposed to be there to stop an exploding clutch from escaping I think this is also an area that has been overlooked and should be enforced more closely. I saw a lot of Swiss cheese looking belt guards that would be lucky to stop a blown belt let alone an exploding 102C Perhaps someone needs to lose a nut before smartening up! And about this I'm not joking...

Hey Howie,

Even with a good guard didn't you have one just miss your head and part of it get you in the gonads when your's exploded years ago at St Henri Race?

I remember you hobbling around for the weekend.

Any less of a clutch guard it could kill you.
