What is the best clutch kit for the REV 600 HO SDI X? I currently ride a 200 MXZ 700 (SE) with Goodwin Performance Clutch Kit in it, works great. Getting new sled for 05 - REV 600 HO SDI X. Who makes the best kit, how much, and what are the performance gains I will get(speed or acceleration increases and where)?

Thanks.

Another vote for Cudney Racing's clutch kit. Turned the mid-range wick way up on my 04 600 HO SDI X. Top end is a bit better too, but I wanted mid-range most of all and that's what I got.

What about bottom end?

Part of the way the clutch works is through agreesive backshifting, so the belt is where it should be for the maximum grunt. What I've found with mine with the default pin weight (it comes with adjustable pin weights) is that the annoying hesitation is gone. It launchs and keeps on pulling hard to the top where it flattens out (stock has the same flat top end). If you want to know more, Bill Cudney posts as 'Cudney Racing' at Dootalk.com. There are lots of other opinions (including a couple negative ones) there as well. Given what it did for my 600 HO SDI, I would recommend it to anyone.

Thumbs up

I am looking for better low end grunt.. sorta boggy off the line. I have the renegade 600 SDI X with the 1.75" track, I ride between 8000ft and 10000 ft. I have the recomended set-up for clutching in from Doo, but it just doesnt fell right. Slow bottom end... mid range is good but, when you hammer it off the line its BOGGGGG then rips. Heavier spring weight on the primary to get the Rpms up or what? HELP!!!
