well i installed my clutch kit and went for a ride today....first thing I noticed is it picked the wheels up a foot from a dead stop, that was kinda neat. but after that not so good, ive lost the ability to spin/ kick the ass out whenever I wanted like it did from stock. my buddy stock maverick beat me in a drag race, (not off the start, but pulled around me after 300ft). I think I will be taking it out of my buggy and try to sell. unless some clutch guys have some insight.

that's good to know - sounds like they made the spring lil to tight giving u off the line power but losing top end , did u get the right kit for your tires and elevation ?

when ur going 50 mph and FLOOR it what are your RPM's ?

it s got power off the line ,but in stock form if I was going 50 and floor it, I would go sideways which I loved, it does not do that now, now I really have to try to make it drift in a corner. I think the clamping force is right but possibly the shifting is wrong, going 50 with the kit in and floor it rpm goes to 7850 ish I think.

and yes I got the right kit, stock tires 0-4000 elvation. yellow secondary spring and aluminium .85 weight rivots, that's what the instructions said to put in.
what controls the so called shifting of the belt? iam assuming that's the problem. I miss the unpredictability of when u floor it :(

the biggest thing about the clutch kit I guess is now when u floor it it suppose to go to 7800-8000 stock people were only seeing 7300 including me , but like u say I can be doing 50 punch it and slide and that's my favorite part about the bike so im glade u posted ur results ill keep stock !

now going up long hill u will pull better by keeping ur rpms up

I put this same clutch kit in mine. I have not tried it out yet, but suspect I may have lost some top end as well. So, this news is a bit disturbing! Did the mod to hopefully save the belt while duning. Very interested in finding out if there is a correction that will get the top end back! I think aftermarket clutching is in my future!

I did the Dalton kit a couple months ago and lost about 5 mph on the top end. It seems to pull better in the mid range but something is going on with there setup. I bought it from Todd at Hunterworks and he is a great guy but can't give a answer as to the loss in the top end. I am at 4000' also so maybe Dalton needs to look into there settings for this. I will call Dalton and get there advise on this, something is not correct in this setup.

Yes, I agree. I thought properly set up clutching wouldn't lose top end once full shift out occurred. Maybe with that heavier spring the secondary now doesn't shift out all the way? I think their calibration must be off. I'm kinda disappointed so far with mine, and frankly ready to put it back to stock until I can swing getting a full performance clutch set.
Again, let us know what you find out from Dalton. (I was thinking of calling them too).

I would say at this point the 250.00 was not worth it. If Dalton cannot come up with a fix then a aftermarket clutch is going in. Mine will run 72 mph at 8000PRM so rpm is not the problem.
