Default Max Spool 17 trail results

Is anyone running the max spool 17 tune strictly for trail applications? I am interested in performance, reliability, etc. Pros and Cons.
Thanks.

Trail rode exclusively on Max Spool 17 last year. Quite noticeable increase in HP and acceleration over Powertrail. Ran flawlessly, still over 120 miles to a tank before I look for fuel.

Have you guys with the Max spool had to upgrade the clutch / belt, or still stock?

Ben from TD has mentioned a few times on here that he has had good results with just a set of Dalton weights in the primary to adjust for the added power...That's what I have now and before I did a big gear jump I had over 1000miles on my belt...changed my gears and blew a belt that same day.. and that's why im putting my stock gears back in. 22/41 + 1.75" backcountry + studs =clutches running waay too hot and will eat belts... back to 22/48 gears for now


I'm hearing a lot of buzz about Ron's kit in the secondary tho. This is something I would like to try....So many things I want but cant afford to do it all at once..lol I think Ron's kit in the secondary will be my next purchase...
