1 way bearing question??

So I see chatter about eliminating the 1 way bearing and don't understand the procedure! Can someone "explain to me in detail" what this involves? What takes the place of the 1 way bearing? Thanks in advance.

Can do Butch! AC issued a notice regarding the one way bearing. I'm old school, so if it is not needed, it is out of there. You have to remove then outer, and inner clutch covers to get to it. Draining the oil is a must! Once the inner cover is removed you can take the bearing off, it justs sits on the clutch hub! Those things are listed at 80 dollars or so! I like my Prowler better without the bearing, less noise, and one less thing to fail! LOL

RD........You say it sits on the clutch hub? Is it not behind the inner plate on the shaft? So what keeps the oil from coming into the clutch housing?

The clutch is exposed to oil. The oil is sealed by the inner cover. Once you pull the inner cover, the clutch housing is also pulled. There is the left hand nut on the crankshaft, and the bearing rides on the hub. It will not allow reverse rotation. No need to undo the nut unless you to pull the wet clutch

I've never been inside the inner cover! So behind the outer cover is a secondary clutch and a drive clutch, belt driven, correct? Then behind the inner cover there is another clutch???

Yep behind the inner cover is the "wet" clutch. On the hub of that clutch is the one way bearing. I got Rid of mine at the same time as the clutch kit, and there are no adverse affects.

Yep, your primary and secondary clutch are behind the outer cover, pull the next cover and you have the wet clutch, here's a pic of the wet clutch disassembled. I haven't pulled my one-way yet but I really should.

Wet Clutch has its Pro's, and Con's : Belt life is extended, and smoother take off, downside is performance tradeoff. I thought about a Wet Clutch Delete kit, but decided not to.
