Jay let me know what you think about how much smoother you think it is. I noticed on my 16 it didn't nose dive as bad on deceleration but caught on it engine braking more smoother. Also smoother on take off and going thru power band.

Yes I agree totally! Also I notice it being Alot quieter durning normal riding since it seems to not be workin as hard as it was before. Better low end torque, smoother, quieter. All around the things drives a lot better! Im happy

Mines still limited to 50, but it takes alot less pedal to get there now. I used to wanna use low a lot for slow tight woods trails, not the case anymore! High range is awesome for trail riding speeds! Like I said earlier the engine noise at normal cruising speeds is a lot quieter now. Feels like your teryx went on a diet...... I love it

Just sent my primary and secondary to James to get the new spring and things all dialed and ready for my new 35.5" bkts. I've been testing the kit for the last year and it's amazing.

James is awesome, talked to me about an hour this summer, very patient and has forgotten more about clutches than most will ever understand

It's a farm shed. It's not smooth or polished. It's the kind of concrete that if you fall on as a kid it rips the skin off your knee and I even swept it. You can kinda see the pile of dirt by the tractor. I don't care what anyone says anyways. I've had both clutches. I know which is better and that's what I'm running.

No I know. Sorry if that sounded rude but I've just become accustomed to getting my ass chewed regularly for liking the JBS better. When I first planned to test the JBS I talked to vfj and made sure the clutch I had of his was his best setup for my teryx running 30s. If you ever have a chance to run both clutches side by side in the same machine the difference will amaze you.
