Check your KRX primary bolts!

Long story short...

We were doing some crawling and hill killing and noticed a little clicking in the clutch. Took a pass up a steep hill, and let it free roll back down to try again. Hit the gas and it just bogged down. Probably didn't get over 2k -2500 rpm when bogged down. The primary bolt had backed out into the housing. It boogered up the housing a little and left some shavings, but didn't do too much damage.


We have 2 machines, one for play and one for parts. We came back to the shop, checked the 2nd machine, and it was also starting to back out.


Check it and tighten it down!

Awesome. Spread the word to any new buyers. Hopefully the dealers will start checking before any more go out.

And yes, pretty sure its snorkeled and filtered.

The pic shows the secondary... the primary is the smaller one on the left. Which bolts are we supposed to check? I mean, there's the main one that holds the primary on the crank, and then generally, three bolts and nuts hold the weights in place.

Looking at the secondary, I see its main center bolt, and what looks like three allen-head socket bolts... guessing those hold it together under spring tension and with the helix in the middle.

Just wanted to know what to look for when I pull mine apart tomorrow or the next day...

I opened mine up tonight... all of my bolts were tight. FWIW, I have about 120 miles on my KRX now.
