We just spent two weeks riding in Wyoming from 7000 ft to 11,800 ft. I have owned most other brands but the KRX was amazing. After riding over 1100 miles, this buggy performed well on normal and rocky trail conditions. The buggy got 16 miles to the gallon with shocks set on the lowest settings, and rear tire pressure 11 and front at 8 psi. The ride was very good. However, it seems as if the Maxxis Carnivores may have excessive wear in compared to the spare. Overall it performed extremely well. Unfortunately, we are headed back to the dealer. The primary clutch is failing. 馃檨 At 30 mph and higher the clutch shifts up and down excessively and is extremely loud!!!
At 30 mph and below the clutch performs well but is still loud. Even after having this little glitch the buggy is outstanding. Job well done Kawasaki! Looking forward to getting the clutch issue resolved and getting back on the trails.

I feel like I am getting some clutch noise too. Quiet at idle, but gets kind of clattery with increased speed. Just crossed the 800 mile mark last weekend.

After my dealer investigated, the clutch showed premature wear on the weights and some slight belt grooving on the sheaves. Then after deliberating with Kawasaki for several days with pictures and emails, they decided they would warranty the primary clutch. While looking for parts, I noticed there is a new part number for the primary clutch assembly as well. So hopefully a new part number means new and improved. Thank you Kawasaki for standing behind your KRX.

Mine is going to the dealer tomorrow clutch is loud as well, But mine shifts hard and shifts like an automatic in a car/truck, And at times feel like it bogs the sxs down its really different never felt this before with a cvt belt drive. Plus i hope my steering knuckles, lower a arms and ball joints come when its there so they can change them right away. Its a pain when you live 2 hrs away from the dealer lol.

Super Moderator can bring back the dead? Hello Jesus!
馃檶馃徑馃檶馃徑 Yea the last post was over 3 months ago lol I just took mine in Saturday for a primary drive and clutch replacement. They said that鈥檚 where the humming/roaring noise is coming from. I don鈥檛 think that鈥檚 it but if it ends up not fixing the noise I still get a free clutch lol

Dealer installed the new updated part numbers for both clutches in my machine at 600 miles. I鈥檓 at 1095 miles now and the clutches are junk again. Back to the dealer for another new set!

I just checked mine at around 600 miles and there is a very slight rub mark but hardly noticeable. Cleaned up and felt smooth. I only run WOT though!!! Mine is 2020 about 6 mos old. Forgot to check the PN on the clutch. I definitely blew out some dust and debris from the clutch rollers and clutch itself, but the belt and sheaves were very clean. See how it holds up with the Supercharger!
