I have a 2008 700 with a wet clutch issue. I have searched the form and I have found how to replace the shoes, but can someone attach a link to the step by step removal of the wet clutch with pictures for a 700.
Are the nuts on the clutches left hand or right hand thread ??
Any links to shoes would be great also.
Any info is a bonus
Thanks in advance ,George

Best bet would be to download a factory service manual.
You can get them at tradebit.com for about $20.

I’m not very mechanical and I did wet clutch slugs myself. The shoe change would be just 1 or 2 more steps.
The most annoying part was the plastic removal. The Hardest part was breaking the gasket bond loose to get the wet clutch engine cover and shaft to come free. I still have the bruised fingers from smashing them with the rubber mallet handle between the handle and the shaft when I slipped. Thinking back, the old gasket removal wasn’t fun either. Not hard, just slow.
I followed a Youtube video about doing “Wet Clutch slugs”. I believe it was Hunterworks doing a Wolverine 700 but it’s the same process on the Grizzly700.
The primary and secondary clutch are normal right hand thread. The Primary shaft holding the wet clutch in behind the engine cover is left hand thread. Hunterworks recommends you change that nut. I put a new one on mine with the slug install.
I also did the “no no” and used impact and not a torque wrench for that nut. I did not one to remove the other side of the engine and the cover to thread the lock bolt in to lock the engine place for proper torquing. Lazy I guess.. but Hunterworks did it with impact so I did too. He does say not to, but does it this way every time anyway.

Thank you very much for the quick reply. I watched the u tube video's by Hunter and they where great too.
It's weird, I cannot buy just the shoes from Yamaha, I have to purchase the whole wet clutch, but ebay has them ????
Thanks again, have a great day EH !! :smile2:

I haven’t looked into the shoe replacement yet, but was not aware eBay sold them for the 700..
just be double sure they are for the 700 before you order.

Madkawi750 Where did you get your wet clutch slugs ?
The person I found on ebay doesn't ship to Canada.
Thanks George

I ordered from Hunterworks. $49.95 for the kit with the gasket.
I added the new clutch nut to my order. It was an extra $9.95
I don’t think it was needed as the nut has a punch spot to lock it on anyway. But... I didn’t want to chance it for the sake of $10.

I've never seen wet clutch shoes for the 700 before by themselves, if on Ebay would be wary of quality.


Only seen them as an assembly


Walt on this forum does sell them for 660 I know for sure by themselves but not for the 700.

I contacted Walt about 700 shoes a couple years back and he said "No, and I don't plan on making any either!" Seems a little cranky in the email, but who can really tell from an email ? Maybe he was getting overloaded with stupid emails like mine. ha
