    I found this today while on Facebook, and started checking it out after watching a video on it. Thought share it for the other Polaris guys out there. This kit essentially puts a Yamaha style clutch into your Polaris machine. We all know how much we all love the Yamaha clutch system. This system doesn't use a one way bearing, but a sprauge that does the same operation. I honestly think I'm going to start saving for this clutch set up for the xp 1000. It is the one thing that I missed from my yamaha grizzly. The xp 1000 system is in testing yet, but they have them out for the rangers, and other rzr's.

    yeah it does. One thing I thought pretty good is they will warranty the belt for one year, and replace it if you burn it up. I'd like to not have to wait for the clutch to engage like the stock clutch does. Instant clutch engagement be great, and yamaha style engine braking with this clutch. No free wheeling.

    Looks like a pretty good improvement over the Polaris setup! That was one thing that drove me to the Teryx, it works like a Yamaha. This would be almost a must have for the Polaris folks I'd say.

    Yeah the clutch is really the number one thing I dislike on the rzr's.

    My video from the guy that I shared said its not a one way bearing though. In the video he says they don't rely on a one way bearing cause it has a shorter life than the sprague design there using. From what I read the guy that designed it is an ex Polaris engineer that spilt of and started this company along with a track set up called duratrack

    They both perform the same function and many people interchange the terminology.

    The guy in the video is from Hunterworks, likely the same guy that made the post.

    Well that's funny if same guy cause in video he says how it's not a one way bearing. Not big deal but to me if you say two different things in video verses a forum I wouldn't want buy from ya. I'm planning just buying right from duraclutch most likely anyways. Either way this clutch would be nicer than stock

    I've dealt with Todd from Hunterworks way back in the day on the greaseless roller weights for the Grizzly, he was always a pretty good guy to deal with.
