    Will let you know on this one, for sure ....this kit is really different from my 800 R kit I put on my other Rotax ...the green.yellow spring on the Commander kit is supposed to lower the stall engagement RPM, whereas on my Rhintax, it raised the engagement ...different machines react differently

    ...sent with TapaTalk...please excuse brevity & no smileys

    Dalton makes one of the best kits for clutches. You will still have problems burning belts. The sheaves on the primary arn't locked together, when under load they spin differently. Hence commanders being heavier burn the belts easier. I'm going with the airdam like I have on my quads. It locks the sheaves together abd workes better. Also lower starting ratio, and with the secondary more top end.

    As far as working on your clutch, If you get a clutch kit I would think that would be springs and weights. And if that is the case you would not get lower gearing just better grab on the belt. But by going with a complete after market primary clutch you will get lower gearing. That along with springs and weights set up for what your doing (mudding) you would get lower gearing and better grab on the belt.
    Now if looking at after market clutches there is the STM or Airdam clutch. Bothe about the same price.
