Hey guys, I'm concerned that I've talked to to different people about what to get and what you dont need when getting the secondary clutch. One guy says Dale says that you need the wide belt and primary clutch weights then another guy gets told that the clutch alone is enough and then he ends up having to change his primary weights to 62 so he's no banging to rev limiter. Then I was told secondary clutch alone is enough now I hear all all the other stuff from my two buddies now I think What is going on . Has the new clutch been tested for all applications and what works with what and what are the results ?

Im not a expert by no means, but i have tryed to up the performance on my 07 XP and i have come to the conclusion that with my set-up the heavy cab, that as far as top end im getting all i will ever see. Ive got the clutch, the new ecu, the belt by dayco and from a dead stop to top end is great it will get there real fast, but top end is still 43 mph at the best and ive never hit the rev limiter on mind at top end, the only way i can hit rev limiter is in low gear.

So many machines, so many different combinations. One thing to consider when clutching these machines is one machine is always faster then another. Every person Rides in different terrain and has different tires and acc. For this reason we have different clutch setups. Then when you talk modifications thats a whole new ball game which changes the clutching combinations once again. The stock belt on your machine will work fine with proper alignment and belt deflection. The wide belt kit will give you little better performance versus the stock belt. When you order a clutch kit from us we take into consideration the year and size of machine. The tire size and brand of tire, the conditions you ride in and elevation you ride at, and what peformance and acc. mods you have done. What works for one person might not be the right setup for another, thats why we have 7 different primary and secondary springs, 11 sets of weights and 10 different helix combinations to choose from. The bottom line is this we can set up a clutch kit for your machine and the conditions you ride in. Thanks Dale!

I can vouch for that, as well. I was running 73 grams in WI, and when I hit the trails in Moab, I had to drop the clutch weight considerably to get it back up to the rev range it needed for maximum power. In my opinion, unless you ride at the same place all the time, buy the supertip weights and you'll be able to take a quick spin at a new riding place, add or remove some weight, and your riding will be so much more enjoyable. When I got out to Moab, I thought something was wrong with my machine after it ran like a bat out of hell in WI. All it was was the clutch weights needed to be brought back down, and it's all good again.
