I've read a ton of clutch posts, not sure what I want to do. I can't afford to do the whole $1500 thing right now. Will I be happy with just the Dalton kit or should I go for the CV Tech primary for 2X as much at $700? I have a 14 Xxc, and have smelled the belt on a couple of long hill climbs, so I know the belt is slipping. My buddy also just bought an XP1000, so I want to beat him too!! I don't like tuning, would rather be riding, I can do it, just don't enjoy it. For the money, what's my best investment without going all in. I may eventually upgrade my secondary also, but I do like my engine braking. Let me know, especially if you have real world experience with the different options. Any problems with the Gates belts? Thanks

You know someone will post "do a search on the Topic" however I have to agree I think sometimes I do a search & with all the info by the time I'm done reading I'm more confused that when I started...I too don't want to put 1500+ into a clutch rather put it in the fuel tank!

The CVTech was actually the 1st mod I did to my Maverick. That along with a Dalton secondary spring gave me marginal at best performance gains, BUT the reliability was worth every penny.

Edit: the CVTech coupled with an STM secondary (and a bit of clutch tuning) works pretty damn good, and has a definitly noticable performance gain.

You can do a couple things to your stock clutch very cheap.

EPI red spring for the secondary with increase belt tension. It's like $30.

Then save your pennies until you can get an STM or QSC

If you don't want to spend the cash for aftermarket clutches, WVXRS is correct. The EPI red, or the Dalton violet/black secondary spring will help with the back shifting.

Anything cheap on the primary? What about the Dalton kit, everybody happy with it? Can I beat an XP 1000 with it?

Probably won't beat the xp1k with just a kit but I don't personally know. I have a QSC and a gates belt and I have narrowed it down to the belt being noisy after it heats up. Also have smelled it slipping when under slow high load situations. Can Am has a new belt out for the XMR that I will try next.

A full stm rage 6 setup when tuned properly will put down 10 hp to the rear wheels because it is that much more efficient than a stock clutch. The xp1k is yours after that.

10 hp Below the curve not overall I Don't want you to think your 72rwhp Mav will put down 82rhwp with just changing the clutches

I have the stock clutches with Dalton Kit. Seems to have more snap off the bottom, no more RPM surge, and can be tuned to match bigger tires if I choose so. I have the gates belt as a back up.

Thats what some people say, But is that b/c they read it on a forum? Or is it personal experience? My personal experience is they last just as good or close to, for half the price, Untill you get them wet. I have shreaded 1 stock belt and burnt (just a little) one XTX dayco in 5 years of hard riding. Both were b/c of water. But take it as you want, that is just my personal experience. Another thing I have often wondered about belts is when a guy posts that he blew a stocker, then put on a aftermarket and it went on this first ride. What was the reason for the stocker going? Probably/possibly water. Was the problem fixed before the aftermarket was put on? If it was water and the problem wasnt fixed that would explain why the after market belt is a POS, would it not? Sorry for the sarcasm at the end. Just some thoughts on the subject.
