No I haven't heard anything about a pipe other then on here. I don't think you will see that. Selling a clutch kit is one thing. Selling a pipe to someone that doesn't know what there doing could be bad.Especially when it requires jetting and tuning.

89.00 for an ER helix
20.00 for a secondary spring
20.00 for a primary spring
45.00 for 3 clutch weights

174.00 total price for the "clutch kit"

I'll continue to save $105.99 considering that pretty much replaces all the parts you could get in a kit and I already have an assortment of springs and weights... So, looks like Polaris/Erlandson priced themselves right in the ballpark for the posers.

Yes, for alot of guys they would rather spend the $100 extra for a kit. I like to test and find different combo's myself. Just wish we had snow here at home once in a while. It sucks going on a trip and not knowing how your sled will run. Then making changes outside in the cold. :banghead: I've heard of quite a few guys that bought clutch kits and not like them as well. Biggest gripe I hear about EPI kits are no backshift. There great for drag racing, but not trail riding. Not sure if they have changed in the last couple years or not. :dunno:

for years now, {900 Fuse not included because I don't know} it's been SOP with every new Poo I've bought that you could: add 2 grams to the clutch weight, drop/add about 20 #'s primary top spring pressure, add a multi angle helix in the 50-34 range with the silver blue spring, and have a much better running sled, then be happy or start fine tuning

I had to laugh at Haydays. I stopped at the Erlandson booth and they had a sign advertising their kits through Polaris. I asked if I would be able to tell if it was there kit, they said yes. I said good, cause obviously, Polaris engineers can't figure out clutching!!!! Many expressions were exchanged, u dedide what they were!

yah i talked to glen too at haydays he doesnt really think too much of polarises stock clutching himself. the only reason i beleive polaris wants him to build kits and sell them through polais is because polaris wants in on all the aftermarket parts profit. lets face aftermarket parts =big markup. look what makes pol the most money,accsessorie and financing.

I think so, the current Wisconsin law says you cannot do anything to make your sled louder, the proposed law Wisconsin AB-566 is for 88db at 4000 rpm. I think the new SLP silencers will qualify either way.

My camper is down at my buds in Goose Lake. Picking it up at 10 to take it to Mazon for winter stoorage. Bud is supposed to take his shocks off for rebuild, so we may end up at Brians after Mazon. Maybe I'll see you there. Don't be surprised if Brian isn't in the shop today. They are in the fields.

I ran your team for about 1200 of my 2800 miles on the 600 last year. Got a helix from AFJ that he rec'd for my 600. Compared to my best button setup, the team had better midrange pull and better backshift. Wasn't as strong out of the hole and lost 5 mph topend on speedo. Same day. Gained about 2mph back with a stiffer spring.
