Clutch kit versions available for stock or oversized tires. Accurate clutch calibration means improved performance in soft terrain and better belt life.
Two different adjustable kits
Having flyweights that are tuneable allows the kit some flexibility for tire variations and different applications. There are, however, some limits and we offer two different clutch kits based on the tires used.
DBO 850 2016-21 Outlander, Max, Renegade 850 4X4
This is the standard adjustable clutch kit that is used for stock and oversized tires up to and including all 28” tires and applications. This kit offers improved acceleration and response, as well as adjustability for tires within the range specified. There is no loss of top speed from the kit. The included “set up guide” shows you how to set up the kit for your application.
There are instructions in the kit, as well as the part number for the optional secondary spring (DPSS-B/V) to convert this kit to the “M” kit if you ever install 29.5” or larger mud tires.
DBO 850 M 2016-21 Outlander, Max, Renegade, XMR 850 4X4
This kit is specific to extra large tires. 29.5” diameter and larger. The clutch requirements for tires of this size is different. Most often used for mud, soft terrain, and/or ground clearance, it is a different shift calibration requirement. The extra large tires not only have more rotating weight, but a even larger gearing issue resulting from the tires.
This kit includes similar components, but also includes a different secondary spring.
There are instructions in the kit that show you how to set it up for different tire sizes in this range.
The instruction in this kit also show you how to set up the clutches for smaller tire sizes with the stock secondary spring if you ever install smaller tires on the vehicle.
FAQ: I’m a heavy rider and have some heavy 28” tires. I do some mud and want the best performance. I had a different ATV before that needed a secondary spring for heavy 28” tires. Should I order the “M” kit ?
Answer: No, you should not. It is better with the stock secondary spring. Our best test results are shown in the above description of the kits. This new 850 has different engine characteristics than some previous models, as well as very different stock clutch calibration. The optional secondary spring is very sensitive. If you use it when you do not need to it has negative side effects including high rpm and speed loss.
