Secondary Roller Comparison
Will try to keep this short and I say try!!! All secondary rollers are not created the same and the ones you decide to buy really does matter. The material they are made of and the processes used on them is very important.
Brief history: back in 2014-15 the RZR 1000 had roller material that flat spotted really easy, so we started selling rollers that are made from Torlon, you will see those around now even for the newer square puck clutches as a replacement for the pucks but what we found was the torlon flat spotted too, not as bad as the OE material but they still did so we started making our own rollers and now 20,000 rollers later I have only seen around 6 sets flat spotted due to a worn clutch they were running on.
While on OE material, we have seen people buy inside round rollers for the square puck clutches and replace the outside square pucks with them however they do work but that is the very material that flat spots the easiest. I have one company I buy some stuff from and they offer a secondary roller, thought they had something special, ordered four of them and was surprised it was the OE inside roller!!

Then there is a company that appears to know what material we are using but they do not know the rest of the processes and there are three of them that they go through here that make them much more reliable. Kinda like buying a cheap clutch puller that is not heat treated and buying one made from the same material that is heat treated, one bends and one does not. BTW, our clutch puller will not bend and if it does they have a lifetime warranty on them.
Now moving on to a new roller I just saw come out, won't name names of the company but the material is called Ultem and interestingly enough we tried making rollers from it too, three years ago. The material failed miserably. Says it can take temps at 340 but the pic below is a roller made from it and one done in a heat test we did. BTW our present material held up to 400 degrees before deforming. This material does not have the lubrication properties either required for outside rollers.
So in the end, you have several choices, more OE rollers that flat spot, torlon rollers that flat spot too just not as bad, a competitor with a "like" product but without the processes, a new roller out of a material we know will not stand up or you can just buy the one that most people have now that works and be done with it!!!
Click this link to purchase either roller, meaning we have them for most all vehicles whether the older clutch with round rollers or the newer ones with square. These rollers are not applicable to Turbo models and any vehicle that has a Rapid Reaction Secondary.
