    That name changes as your post count goes up, start looking at other folks, some of them are really fitting and funny at times.

    You have 5000 km on this machine? And you recently did these mods?

    Two things, that belt surely has some wear so that can account for it and that engine is probably getting tired a bit. And lastly your tire size

    5K is nothing, with oil changes etc it should go 2 to 3 times that easily.

    Agreed I've seen Rhinos with 20K + miles and still running strong. It's all about maintenance. No reason the Wolverine X2/X4's won't run 20k, 30k miles.. My 08 Rhino had nearly 10k with zero issues and on the original belt. However I maintained it properly.

    5000 km -tired engine??? WTF??? I had 30,000 km on my Rhino engine and it is still going. I maintain my stuff pretty well. I have put 700 km on in a single weekend! I hope you just read this wrong! I did the clutch mods about a month ago - immediately after they became available. I still think the clutching did little to nothing for my stock X2 - for the 8 km/h I gained, I think that was due to the ECU programming removing the speed limiter. I might reinstall my stock clutch and stock weights and confirm. Too bad, I was excited for a while.

    I am curious to hear your results. I have 28" tires and the weller flash and I am getting 57 mph. I think just a lighter weight will help me get up over 60 mph. I think that due to the larger tires, I am not getting full shift out. Other than that, I am very happy with my setup and hoping to avoid doing the sheave. I may, at some point try going a little lighter on the weights to see if that allows the engine to rev a bit further.

    In your case, you are probably correct. On stock tires, these machines are almost too torquey. The sheave might have given you more bottom end and maybe some better accelleration. I don't think the sheave can give you more top end unless it is allowing the belt to run higher. Larger tires would be the only solution for more top end.

    Lighter weights will just make it rev higher at lower speeds, not what you want.
