Question Clutching the Rotax

I'm planning on using the Dalton clutch, What weights should I run in arms. The steel ones or alumina ones. How's the Dalton spring work in these rhino. Does it stall up to about 2200 R.P.M.'s before in moves is that a little much or is it perfect for the sand? Also how hard is it to work on the clutch when it's in the Rhino with stock seat bases?

I just did the dalton spring, and it is great, jumps rike-a grasshoppa off the line now. Only rode the sand in it once, and it felt good to me, but I'm just a rook in the sand.

After reading the instructions I think I'm going with the steel rivets and green Dalton spring.

I think I'll call Jay tomorrow and ask. The instruction says, with heavy mud tire run no rivets in the replacement weights. Run steel rivets if you have a pipe and intake on stock tires at low elevation and run the aluminum if you are in high elevation with any tire over 5000 feet.

I ran mine with no rivets. I could get 63 or so with 26" tires......69 on the speedo with stockers, but I NEVER hit the rev limiter in High range. I am guessing it was the clutching as I am sure the engine has the power!

In my arctic cat with stock rotax I ran the steel arms no weight and the spring. Now with the turbo cat I run 2 kits with rivets in every arm and the spring and a secondary spring to.
