Does anybody have a trick to getting the bolts out of the clutch cover without dropping the skid plates or taking the exhaust off trying to change the belt

If that’s on a commander you do not need to remove a skid plate. there is four holes that you can get that from the bottom. I use a quarter inch drive ratchet and socket.

Anybody somebody please trying to change the one-way bearing on the primary Took the center bolt out nothing Seems like it’s locked on there you can push it in about an inch and a quarter hit it with a rubber mallet nothing And as far as getting the cover off it was easier to take the exhaust pipe off to Springs to nuts $&@&/;) holes on the bottom you get a quarter turn but thank you

The sheave should have came off when you took the center bolt out. It is obviously stuck for some reason. I would say come up with some kind of a puller to get the outer sheave off. Maybe two straps with slip noose on back side of outer sheave then a heavy object to act as a slide hammer. You do need a clutch removal tool to take the inner sheave off of the crank. As for the four bolts on the bottom of the CVT cover patience grasshopper patients.

He’s got a rapid response clutch. Nothing like the factory clutch.

Taking the small section of skid plate under the clutch off makes the job a whole lot easier. It's just 6 bolts. 10mm socket and cordless impact and it takes less than a minute. Take out 5 and just loosen the right front one and spin the plate out of the way. Then you can spin it back and the bolts will be lined up. I took the advice and tried taking them out through the tiny access holes the first time...never again.

Don’t ever buy a high quality aftermarket skid. Cause you will be back under going through the holes again .

Been running a cvtech trailbloc for about 2 1/2 years on my 2015 commander 800 with No problems. Are you sure the clutch housing backplate is installed correctly. What year is your mander?

Double check the part # of the clutch should be 0900-0292. Also do not remove the balancing weight, if you do mark everything so it goes back together the same or will be out of balance.
