This is a discussion on Grizzly 700 Clutch Weight Change within the Technical Articles forums, part of the Reviews & Articles category; Today we put changed weights in my 2007 Grizzly 700 clutch. It made it noticeably snappier...but not on the very bottom.
Here are some photos ...
Thanks for the demo. I'm planning on installing a new machined sheave & weights but didn't want to tear into it without a little advice. Your photos answered a lot of my questions & will make it much easier.

When going with 2 two different weight sizes you just put the same weight across from another correct? Not having 2 of the same side by side

2 things you didn't add to your writeup that will make this job error proof.
1) On the bench, once the cam plate is installed and bottomed out and the next part being the cap or grease cover is installed, insert anything you can think to hold pressure against the cam plate that will still allow you access to the nut to tighten. I use 2 pieces of rubber heater hose, some others use a balled up rag. This will 100% ensure no rollers have a chance to move.
2) The 2nd issue relates to the first. Do not remove the pressure against the cam plate until belt tension is re-established. Tighten the primary sheave down and then rotate the clutches until full belt tension is established. Once you have it, remove your heater hose or rag from the cam plate.
Without doing this, most times you will never have an issue but it's not a lot of effort for peace of mind.
