Should I be running a clutch kit to run 28 R-Laws. The are on the bike already and i feel like it has lots of power. Never ran it with the stock tires to know what I lost from the tires. Its a 2012 XT1000 had it about a week and have not put the stock tires on to see the difference. Im looking at the dalton kit. Im more of a trail/ hunting rider with a little mud here and there but i do like to do wheelies. This thing is sooo much fun. Im glad my wife confiscated my XT500. So should i clutch it or will i be fine without it.
ok so I put the 26" acts on the bike today and took her for a lil spin and it was a big difference in power delivery. Will a Dalton get me close to stock power or do I really need to go full primary. Looking for guys with kit vs full clutch experience.
You can get it back to stock performance, and maybe a bit more with just a kit. However, as the others mentioned, there is a LOT more to be gained with a full primary. If you are already happy with the power a kit may just be the thing for you. But it's half the cost of a full primary change and won't transfer if you decide to change clutches later. So it could be a lot of money wasted later on if it isn't enough gain for you. We deal in QSC and Straightline Performance kits if you're interested in any other options. Both run about the same price. Both give good gains and are comparable in performance too.
thanks for the replies I got a lil time so I think I'm gonna ride it for a while with the stock setup. And then look into clutching it with a full primary when I put the 28s back on. I was suprisef how much performance was gained from putting the stock tires on.
