bronco clutch HP gain

Currently have 07 rhino with 686 kit.
Has anyone did a dyno run to see what and where the HP gains was to the rear wheels on the bronco clutch compared to the kms sheave with blue spring with 14 and 12 weights?
How reliable is the bronco clutch? How often does the belt need to be changed? How much noise does it make?

Wondering the same thing. I've got an '06 686 with the same sheave, spring and rollers that you mentioned. Lets see what people have to say.

never ran it on a dyno. but i do know this, bronco clutch gives you zero hp gain, it only transfers power from the motor much better than a wet clutch. i have had no problems with the bronco and have done no maintenance so far.

I have a friend with the Bronce clutch in his and everytime he takes it out it, comes apart. I have another friend that has one and has no problems. It's a crap shoot on how it's going to work. I feel they are not very reliable. That's my feelings only.

did you change any weights or springs? or just installed it as it came?

what kind of mods do you have?

thanks
