Low engagement doesn’t mean low power anymore!
These clutch kits are tailored per customer (no cookie cutter set-ups) to take the guess work out of the picture. Designed by SBM to improve the RS at engagement, low, mid, throttle response, engine braking and top speed.
Lets talk about engagement. We are clamping the belt harder @ the primary clutch (the small pulley) to reduce belt slip, gain belt longevity and widen the gear ratio. Have you noticed that loading and unloading the sled is difficult because it wants to spin the track and leap forward or backwards uncontrollably. Even backing up is hard and sometimes problematic. Have you also experienced having to blip the throttle a bunch of times to negotiate a turn at lower speeds?
Our clutch kits were developed for each model specifically. This for stroke engine has over 71 ft lbs of torque @ 3,500 rpm, so why would you need to engage @ 3,800 rpm. You won’t believe how well you will be able to maneuver at lower speeds with the addition of the lower 2,800 rpm engagement.
Now lets talk mid-range arm stretch. If you think your RS Vector is fast now, try keeping it in the (CAMSHAFT) all the way to top end. Talk about usable power! A big plus from this set up will be lower cruising rpm’s. This translates into better fuel mileage across the board, broad torque in the mid-range, awesome throttle response, and great top-end.
Easily installed at home (No puller needed)
RS Vector Comfort Clutch Kit:
The RS Vector Comfort Clutch kit is for those who don’t like the higher engagement in the RS models. This clutch kit lowers the engagement for smooth take-offs and maneuvering. You will experience less track spin, jumpiness, and aggressive backshift (the “thrown forward” feeling). Don’t be fooled by the word “Comfort”. With this kit you will see improved mileage, increased power to the ground, and a comfortable/controlled use of reverse.
