Alright, heres the deal. I am putting in the 144 studs like i said before. Now that i have the extra traction, should i get a C.K.? I havent ridden the sled yet, (heck im still tryin to figure out the pattern for the studs) so i dont know what type of performance the sled will have. Im guessing that i could probably use a little higher engagement RPM now, since the studs will likely hold the ground better and not have to worry about slipping. Soooooo, what company has everyone else used? pro's, con's of each company...and doesnt polaris have its own personal advice on what company to use? (kinda like AC and black magic are linked)

I would say to wait for some snow before you go out and buy anything. See how the machine goes with the new studs. I myself have never used any clutch kits so I know very little info about them. Higher RPM engagement sounds good. What is it at now? Around 4000?

I believe that engagement is around 4,500 RPM but you must also remember that this is a triple and doesnt have the torque at lower RPM's like the twin cylinders do. Thats the main reason i was thinking about the clutch kit.

Hot Seat Performance and Erlandson Performance are the 2 best mfg's for Polaris clutch kits. In my opinon anyway. I know lots of people who run with HSP kits and a few who go with EP kits. IMHO, the Hot Seat ones are better.

But, I'll get that pattern for ya, hopefully tomorrow, I've got it written on my hand so I won't forget, and then wait for snow to try it out. Most people who add studs think they need a C.K. at first, but then they ride the machine, and find out it rips just as good as it did before, with more traction. But, clutch kits add major performance to machines without studs, so with the increase would be even more noticable. I'd say ride the machine before buying a clutch kit. Just to see if they made a difference in the way the machine runs.
