    Refresh our memory, what was your previous top speed and that was with 17 gram weights? Never mind, I just looked it up. 60 MPH on 17 grams.

    We pretty much have the same results! Good to confirm. Thanks! Waiting for the JBS new and improved X2 X4 clutch system release. Also hoping Kyle (from Weller) and James (from JBS) get together here shortly to test with the HMF exhaust and turbo system to get the tune right!

    I think Weller is already using Hunter Works.

    If you have a JBS clutch, Weller will try and work with you but with statements like this I seriously doubt a formal collaboration will happen:

    Wow like I said did not want to turn this into a Hunterworks V.S. JBS. In the initial conversation. Your a moderator Massive. Your suppose to stay neutral and help not feed the fire. Both Tom and James make great products and competition Breeds better products for us the consumer. But bashing does no one any good!

    DO NOT tell me how to do my job. As a matter of fact, it's been made very clear when I was made a mod that JBS talk was forbidden and if I really wanted to do my job as laid out, I could have deleted your post entirely. This is the ONLY forum where BOTH HW and JBS can be talked about...........pretty much freely. You certainly won't get the type of dialogue you see here on that other forum. Only Timmi, Rebel19, Norbert Keppler Jr. (Big Dog Daddy), and James spouting off lies. I've tried helping everyone who has had issues with their JBS clutch, both in my FB group and here. So you're welcome for me allowing you to post your JBS-related post and trying to help you with your issues.

    The screenshot I showed is FACT. I don't make baseless claims like the rest and more than happy to back up my claims. If you refute my claims feel free, but back your statements up with evidence. It is a FACT that JBS has ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION bashed Weller Racing, but this should be no surprise as you'll see this is common behavior, even from a previous staunch supporter of JBS, TGM Off Road who sells the Wolverine Gen 1 doors.

    So, being unbiased means accepting facts. No fake news is allowed here. Feel free to prove that JBS HAS NOT acted unprofessional, HAS NOT been banned from MANY forums and FB groups.

    JBS has been banned from Wolverine Nation, Yamaha Vikings and Wolverines, Wolverine Forum, and of course Wolverine Forums just to name a few simply because he can't act professional and he has a small and ever-shrinking group of die-hards to support his personal attacks and shady demeanor.

    If you don't like these FACTS then you're welcome to go elsewhere. You can also present your facts/opinion but I will call you out without sufficient evidence.

    I challenge ANYONE to state that I have not tried to help them with their JBS X2/X4 setup when they approached me.

    OK, off my soapbox. See y'all in a day when I get off vacation.

    This is a forum of Yamaha Wolverine enthusiasts. We are her to get help, share our experiences, and provide help to others. Not argue. I don’t have time for this and plain and simple don’t care enough to deal with this. Sorry to the rest of the forum but I have asked the administrators to remove all my Posts and delete me as a member. Thank you everyone and even you massive as your post are helpful but am not going to put up with your rants.

    I'm considering taking out the shim, if i understand how the Primary works - wit the shim i end up with a slightly lower low end ratio but this should in theory also give me a lower high end ratio correct? would this not be the case? I'd imagine a few MPH can be had but the removal although i may lose some low end grunt a bit. Maybe switch out some weights (say maybe use 4 of the 17g and 4 of the 20g i have, spread out in a 1-2 arrangement so the Sheave is balanced.
