People have ran the Hurricane shaft on the sleds and they seem to take some of the rattle out of the PTO area.

did it on both of my XXs, made a noticeable difference, I also changed the clutch buttons on one of the rigs.. not difficult, just need the right tools, mainly clutch tool is the main ingredient.. depending on the beer brakes, but I would say an hour to a hour and a half..

How did you replace the buttons? What kind of buttons did you use?

I didn’t do the intake, all parts came from speedwerx and to change the buttons I had to buy the spider removal tool also. All of it is pretty easy, if, you have the right tools. I can see a dealer charging 2-3 hours to do all of it.

you have to buy or build your own spider removal tool to get that off because the buttons are between the spider and towers on the primary..I used the speedwerx buttons

Spider removal often means a fixture to hold the clutch plus a tool that fits the spider. I don't know the spec for the XX clutch, but spiders often get torqued to something in the neighborhood of 300 ft lbs.

I cant really member what the torque was for that but its pretty high as the tool I got to take it off and back on has a square hole on the end to put a 1/2" torque wrench in.. the tool itself is close to 36" long plus a 1/2" torque wrench close to 24" gives you a lot of leverage..

Yup. Pulling one apart is not for the faint of heart. The spider tool for the Polaris primary I used on my first race car was 3/4" drive. Still have the breaker bar.
