Default Erlandson Clutch Kit

Sled is 2012 600 Rush Pro-R. Bought Erlandson Pro series clutch kit that will be installed this week. Ride 85% trails/ditches and 15% lakes & off trail. Not overly concerned with top end but still would like to hit 100 going across the lakes. Everything else is stock, anyone have experience with this as far as any need to change from stock gearing? Not overly concerned with top end but still would like to hit 100 going across the lakes.

Thanks in advance

I have no experience with a clutch kit but I am very curious to hear about yours once you get to test it out.

Just got back from 15 mile test run after installing EPI clutch kit finally. Can vouch for 600 pro r "pro series" clutch kit. Definitive difference in the pull if the sled, got up to 86 in the ditch very quickly and let off only due to rough conditions. If you're debating a clutch kit I would buy EPI hands down, new helix, weights, and both springs. No guess work, just install and drive the hell out of it!!

you are lucky to have a "kit" work perfect for you. i have found that each sled is different and needs to be tuned individually. i normally aim for the target rpm and ability to hold it. many fine tuning tricks with alignment, belt deflection, ski alignment, clean clutches, belt condition, track tension and alignment. if you add studs that will cause a need for a clutch change. glad it worked for you.

I agree completely! I had done some research and talked to a friend that's had several from them and he had very good luck. I also had dealer do preseason checkup and they adjusted track tension and belt deflection among other normal items so I'm sure that helped also making sure those items were all inline. I had debated doing gearing also, but after test run, gonna leave everything else stock at this point. Still need to get out on hard packed trail but if it hauls @$$ like it did in a crappy ditch should really rock on the trail! Alot of guys talked about 68 gram weights and that's what the kit came with so I was happy to hear that from other guys who do more "piece by piece tuning". I just dont have the tools or time to do the proper testing so kit worked well in my case.

Are you sure they are 68g weights ? That seems like too much to me.........64g were even too much sometimes & my 600's were strong...........what rpm are you pulling ?

Pretty sure they were 68g but may have been 66s.... Keep in mind the other clutching components play a part also in the equation. Was in kinda rough ditch so didn't get good luck at rpm but want to say around 8100 and i didn't get to open it up all the way and not for long stretches where a guy can really see whats going on
