Hey All!

Jason from KraftWerks here. We currently have one of these bad boys under the knife and are designing a kit for it. Be sure to check back in as I will be updating the progress we make till we launch it. For more info on what we're about make sure you check out or website!

Right on. I hear people talk about making more power versus wet clutch = problems, is that true?

Haven't seen any issues as of yet. I can see if we went too wild it being an issue, but we normally find the limit and back it down a bit to make sure our kits are completely reliable with all stock internals.

Awesome, I'm really interested, is it actually a super charger or a turbo
Our kits are built around a Rotrex supercharger. It's a fully enclosed system so mud, water or rocks will not damage the unit. With this being a supercharger there is zero lag so you get instant throttle response right off the bottom. Below is an image of our RZR kit to give you an idea.

I do understand how superchargers work and I'm very interested.
Judging by what state it from the Polaris, can expect 50% gain?
Also with this, I should be able to use my Trinity exhaust correct?

Jason

I know it's early but can you give me a ballpark figure of gains?
Don't have hard numbers yet, but just to give you an example we regularly see around a 60% horsepower gains. Our YXZ kit we just release got us 180HP+ when stock was 110HP. It is a lot of fun to drive since you are making boost right away.

50-60% horsepower gains are our norm with our kits and of course we make upgraded kits for additional boost for built motors. Looking at the Trinity exhaust for the KRX it should be ok. I know we blew up a Stage 5 on a RZR because of how they choked down the mid pipe and it wouldn't handle our higher boost kits. Had to make a custom larger mid pipe.

Hey
Will these have to be returned?
As mine has a ECU flash done thru albaracing

Haha not a problem. I'd rather have the info here for everyone to see. We are in first stages of development. once its designed we got to go beat it up and make sure it is completely reliable then we can go to the manufacturing stage. I am hoping for a September or October release if everything goes to plan, but we are in strange times so don't hold me to it. Any updates i can release i will be sure to post here to keep everyone in the know.

With our base kit the exhaust should be fine. If we come out with something like 15psi kit like we have with the RZR you'd have to make something a little custom for sure. These exhaust were designed for a naturally aspirated motor so the piping can be too small and wont exhaust fast enough.

For the ECU you will have to get it tuned regardless. Right now we run the Power Commander PV3 with our current kits and we suggest running their wideband as well. It allows you to track and adjust your AFR and keep an eye on boost. If you do not want to run that you can take the unit to your favorite tuner and have them tune it for you. This will give you optimal performance since it should be done close to wherever you ride the most for your altitude.

Do you think the factory alternator accessory could still be used with this?
Our base kit probably not. We are looking into options though. The issue is both are running off the crank and our kit we fully enclose to make sure it is not effected by water, rocks or mud. The only work around I can see would be us coming up with an additional bracket and pulley to accommodate the alternator, but then we would not be able to keep the supercharger sealed. We are looking into it though.
