QSC REV X Primary Clutch - Impressions?

So I have a 2014 Outlander XMR 1000.

Just installed a QSC Rev X Primary Clutch with stock secondary, and I wasn't overly blown away by the difference. Maybe it was all the snow and wet conditions on the ground... I did find myself with minimal traction.

Has anyone felt the same? I always see on the forum, people saying it is a night and day difference.

The shop I bought it from asked me what size wheels and tires I had so they could set it up, and they are reputable so I assume it is. Next time I am out I will give QSC a call with my RPM/Speed info and see what they say.

The minimal traction will make it seem not impressive as you'll just spin alot more. Also keep in mind the preset setups are just average and often require fine tuning as every bike is different. Next ive tested twice, qsc raptor on my 15 xmr 800 and rev x on my mav xmr and both had much better gain when paired with a stiffer secondary spring.

We tuned my Rev-X and had the weights way different than recommended. I had some creep at idle after I put in a new Mav belt this winter and set the weights back to the recommended. I lost a lot of top end power up at 6500 feet on tracks. My RPM would go up and then drop back down under load. I took some of the tip weight out and will need to test it, but it will be on tires as the tracks came off last weekend.


Point being, my experience on my 800 is that the weights were way off.

I just put a qsc on my 1000. Hell of a difference over stock. Although my stock primary had a pretty decent grove in it. I can spin my tires in the thickest peanut butter with no belt slip

if its not set up properly with the correct shift out you could have lost performance. there are good shops out there that do a real good job most of the time but people do make mistakes and in the clutching game that is easy to do. first thing you need to know is what your shift out is. shift out is when you nail the throttle from a dead stop what does your RPM go to, this needs to be done on a hard surface like dry dirt or pavement in high gear? some of the bikes have a different shift out preference based on mods ect. my 2010 800 xxc with my mods is a 7500 rpm shift out, i think the 1000 like a little higher at 7800, i could be off on that and I'm not sure on the xmrs. if you have a low shift out your not in your power band and your leaving power on the shelf and if its to high of an RPM, again you'll be out of your power band. My rex x made one hell of a difference as well did my other bike with a cvtech.

altitude also plays a roll in clutching. I'm pretty close to sea level where i live at 500 feet but i usually ride in WV at 1500 to 2500 ft. i have my clutched for WV. so if your traveling to higher elevation to ride your RPM could be lower, every 1000 feet of elevation takes away 50 to 100 RPMs. Just something more to make this clutching game more confusing but once you get the hang of it you can make changes to the primary pretty easy. More arm weight brings down RPMs, less weight to the arm raises RPM.
