Just finished installing a Dalton adjustable clutch kit. Am running XT300 33inch so I lost some power. But after the install and the appropriate weights, I can spin those tires from the hole on any surface!!
I lost a little top end but the power is right where you want it on the trails.

Can you explain a little more on the lost top end? Weights and springs should not cost any top end unless it's not allowing the clutch to open fully. It also should make no difference at a dead stop. Starting ratio and ending ratio can only be changed through machining or clutch shimming.

How easy was the install?
Very easy, compared to Polaris it's simple.

It spools up very quickly, as uppose to how it ran before. It tops out at 50, when before I could get 65 -70. But the take-off will jerk your head back.
The Kawasaki's clutches are very different than the Team Polaris one's

If your toping out at 50 something is very wrong. The weights are way to light or something is not moving correctly. Fully open on the Primary and fully closed on the Secondary is as low of starting ratio as you can get. Springs and weights can't change that. The top of the belt should about flush or slightly above the top of the secondary and it should be tight at all times. The jerky take off you described and low top speed makes me think your belt is lose and the primary is not even grabbing the belt until after the wet clutch engages.

I'm using the lightest weights the kit provided. They were the recommended one's when running 33inch tires. The machine feels very quick compared to before. When it was orginal you would stomp the gas and wait 2-3 seconds before you were really moving. Now it's instant wheel spin and your off. I could not spin those xt300 before, now it shoots a roostertail of dirt in the air.???
I will make some time runs and get back with you.

I would put it in high and try pushing it forward, engine off, to make sure the primary is grabbing the belt first. I can't think of a way it could open to far but your jerking take off sounds like a loose belt, so the secondary may not be closing all the way. At the very least you are hitting the rev limiter before the CVT is done shifting do to poor clutch tuning, worst case something is together wrong.

It's not a jerky takeoff I said it will jerk you back in the seat when accelerating. Before the kit it was a dog like I'm sure most of you have experienced. I have an RS1 on 4 inch portals 30% reduction and it would beat the stock KRX.

Ok, I mistook your first comment. However, weights and springs change nothing top or bottom end. They only effect the shifting phase, generally from 6-7k rpm until you run out travel around 50 mph. You still have something wrong with a 50 mph top speed.
