Stock Or Tuned. Would like to know how they holding up.
TEAM clutch on my 19 9000 cracked. Stage 3 Pefi tuned last season. Got good deal on ADAPT from dealer. Based on the weights being used stock and the few reports at the time I installed a set of QA3-65s with stock spring set around 71 grams. In TEAM had QA2-76s set right there at 78 grams. One ride approximately 100 miles temps in 30s so warm. RPM coming out was way down at 82-8400 if I remember correctly and from there she took a bit but just about made it to 8800 but not quite...it was flat and lazy. Warm weather didn't help but had had it out in similar temps before with the dialed TEAM and she revved fine. I left the secondary clutch alone. Much less weight and yet a considerable loss of rpm, and had no sign of belt ash as several have reported tells me the ADAPT is grabbing the belt really well. I'm thinking the support legs wrapping around the spider are preventing a lot of flex from previous clutch designs. Should be a lot more info coming this year. Likely most last year didn't mess with warranty and stayed stock. Betting this clutch is going to work well and definitely better than the TEAM. Time will tell.
IF you catch it before it cracks, I believe I have a preventative measure to prevent the cracks in the Team primary. I have done around 6 clutches now and collectively these 6 now have about 13,000 miles on high HP tunes and lots of studs and show no signs of cracking. The fix involves machining a moderate radius onto the sharp corner down near the center bearing where the cracks start. Clutch has to be taken completely apart to do it.Appreciate all the info. My Team is currently showing no cracks. It's the updated done before I bought it. It's working great and have it dialed in nicely. Wondering if it's worth it to go to Adapt as I might be okay for awhile or just look at it as being on borrowed time. My buddy who services my machine inspects it on a regular basis and looks it all over. My sled has a pefi stage 4 tune. I use it solely for trail . Mainly usually on stage 2 or 3. Plus I hear the Adapt is very quiet.
