QSC one way bearing

Love my QSC Predator primary clutch. BUT when using the engine brake down steep hills it wants to 'freewheel' when going below 2-3mph.

I read somewhere: "If you're worried about the engine braking at 2-3 mph letting go, the QSC has a one way bearing that will keep it engaged like stock."

If this is true where can I get this one way bearing? And how hard is it to install?

Thank you,

You can never get a belt clutch to grab an near idle and have engine braking that low. It would be like driving a clutch car and never pushing in the clutch at a stop light. You would keep going.
I have the QSC Rev-X with the one way bearing and it freewheels at near idle too. It's just the way it has to be with a belt clutch.
Kingquads and Grizzlys have a different type of one way bearing setup and they hold back at lower RPM's. I wouldn't go back to riding a King though!

What about the stock clutch. It braked right down to a stop didn't it? I don't remember it kicking out at all. But the aftermarket QSC does.

All CVT belt drives disengage at low rpm. Only way to have engine braking to stop is tie the primary to a centrifugal force clutch like is found in Japanese ATV's (Yamaha.. etc)

The stock one does go lower than the aftermarket ones but it still kicks out at low rpm. It has to or you would burn the belt right off the machine.

Put it low range and it should be fine. Learn to use the brakes a little you will get used to it in no time.

Blip the throttle when going down hill and it will catch. You just have to bring the RPM's up. Let us know how that works for you.

I second Backfire1 just blip the throttle. Seems that when you raise the clutch engagement rpm, which nearly all aftermarket clutches do, the freewheel also raises a bit. Your belt has to be pinched to get engine braking IE: as soon as the clutch let's go of the belt... no more brake.

Just "blip the throttle" is what I did last year. But on 'pucker hill' we always idled down and rode the brake to control the speed as slow as possible all the while the engine brake working. Guess I will have to practice and get competent with it before I attempt 'pucker hill' again.

You can be braking either hard or soft and just raise the RPM with your thumb at the same time until the belt engages. You do not have to blip it fast. I find it a little harder to do with split front and rear brakes on my XXC so sometimes I will put it in 4x4 on a super steep hill.

(The one thing you don't want to do in 4x4 is ride on a steep hill with your wife on the back stepping on the rear foot brake. I did a front wheelie off a one foot rock drop off on a steep hill up in Canada last fall. Lucky gravity was on our side that day! I thought we were going over and the quad was going to crush us on top of the rocks. The quad would not move until we both got off.
I never found out what caused the front wheelie until the next day. We were going down a moderately steep hill and it kept feeling like the quad wanted to brake. I looked down and saw where she was planting her right foot.)
