Re: Engagement RPM

I was going to ask the same thing...I noticed that also when I was test driving the one I just got on Sat. I thought that was kinda high too. Previous owner said it has always been that way from day one. My RZR starts to take off at about 1800-2000 or so...

Re: Engagement RPM

The weber engine make most of its power at higher RPM's. I've done a lot of trail riding and it takes a little getting use to. For instance, there is a rock hill climb that I've done. I watch the tach, not the speedo. I try to keep it at 4500 to 5000. That keeps the speed around 10 mph.

I think on this type clutching, there is always a compromise. Top speed or low speed crawling. The stock set up is for top speed. I've had mine to 68 mph., out by the Bonneville Salt Flats. I think it would have gone faster, but the stock tires where shaking the crap out of me.

If some one wanted to try a different setup, Comet and Team have different weights and springs.
The Comet 4-PRO can be set to 2500 to 5000 rpm

Re: Engagement RPM

Mine will mainly be used for dune riding. Now if the clutch starts engaging at a lower rpm (then stock 4000 rpm?) then you will lose top speed?

Re: Engagement RPM

Yes I think so.
Think of the other end of the spectrum. Yamaha Rhino. Its made to pull a load and crawl.
Top speed? 40ish. A Revolt on the other hand is just getting started. It will cruise all day at 40 and then some.
The final transmission gearing has a lot to do with this to. I'm not sure what the gear ratio is.

Re: Engagement RPM

It does make sense to me that if the engagement rpm was lower like around 1800/2000 it would be more drivable especially in the dunes. I am used to the high rpm power band due to having 3 different Short Sand Cars w/motorcycle engines. But they didnt have CVT either... Until I get a chance to run it at the dunes I don't want to adjust the clutch.

Re: Engagement RPM

I like the higher engagment RPM in the dunes because it gives you quicker acceleration. All of my friends with modified Rhino's or RZR's change the clutch to one that engages higher to get that big launch, especially when racing up a hill. the low engagment in my opinion is only good for rock crawling and tight trails. something where you need a more controlled power delivery. But thats just my opinion. I bought a redline and sold the RZR because I like going fast and getting there without being beat up by lack of suspension.
