EPI hands down the best kit for your money... I usually got to a more progressive secondary helix though...... get a little more snap...

If I were you I would go with what madcow suggested in your other thread. He knows his stuff and buying parts seperate will save you money.

I don't know much about clutching, but I do know that not a single kit comes perfect out of a box. Look what SledFX wrote - he likes the kit but use a more aggressive helix.

I'd go with Madcow. He knows his crap.

Exactly as far as a KIT goes.... A kit is just what it implys a kit.... Its a baseline safe setup thats more aggressive than your stock setup... It works well for the average rider because to them as long as its better than stock 80 percent of the time then its worth it... All clutch kits do is get the best ride for you in ANY condition...

There are many clutching combos that are alot cheaper and really would be alot better for your sled in the conditions you ride in, most of the time its cheaper to buy the parts indivitually... Id listen to any advice Madcow gives you simply because he knows what hes doing and hes been around... or knows someone thats been around these sleds for many years... There is nothing and I mean nothing better than experience when it comes to setting up a sled.. What works for some doesnt work well for others... It takes time and practice... No one started out perfect... Ever...

From Madcow
sraight 34 from an old indy stock secondary spring with some 10-60 or 62's for trail riding or a 46-38 proggressives and some 10-56 for ditch banging. thats what my poo friend says to do.

Im going to look into this at the Novi show in a few weeks but I need to be sure on the exact numbers that I need to buy!
Did your Poo buddy have this kit on the same 600 ves small block as mine?
Do you know the spring combination that I need.(polaris colour code)
I need a full clutch rebuild so is it worth using the slippery buttons.
And is any of this affected by reverse?

I did this for a guy in new york. he absolutely loves it. not sure how much it really worked though since I didnt get to ride it.

the big twins have good pull and spin a little less rpm. they have a peaky hp curve but good torque curve. so you use a 5 dollar helix out of an old indy. if you dont have one I will send you one for 15 bucks. then you add as much wieght as you can pull. usually you can go up 2 grams from stock. the smaller helix lets the sled have a chance at getting traction out of the hole, is super fast backshift, and has a lot of natural bite on the belt. so you dont need a big spring to grab the belt like a team clutch. you basically make a clutch kit for the 50 some bucks of primary weights. sell your helix to an old indy 500/400/440/supersport kid for 25 bucks and he can get a silver blue spring and make that old indy go wild.
