I'm confused on how the clutch on my raptor 700 is lubricated, does it share the crankcase oil or is it separate gear oil? It was running a little rough the other day after I took it out of winter storage and I would like to optimize it the best I can without replacing expensive parts for now. Any thoughts on adjustments, lubrication or anything else would me much appreciated.

Its a wet clutch application so yes it uses the motor oil in the crank case. Just make sure you use an appropriate wet clutch approved oil or its going to shift like crap! I think the clutch is self adjusting on mine but not sure about your 2007 se. You could do the half fiber mod for the clutch. Getting rid of that half fiber will greatly help. Its in the 700 archives if im not wrong. But i would postpone that until you need to change it out.

Maybe someone with better knowledge will chime in for you...They should everyone is awesome on here.
