Engine Braking Wanted 2012 RZR 800

Hello all I have been riding Polaris Sportsman 4 wheelers with engine braking for over 15 years so I'm use to having it. I can't stand the fact that my 2012 RZR LE 800 does not have true engine braking and I have use my brakes so much and the blurring of the throttle is just not a good way to ride down hill.

Anyone have recommendation for my machine so I can have true engine braking? I'm ready to buy the parts needed even if I need new clutches. Thanks.

SLP (Starting-Line Products) makes a clutch kit that engages at 50 rpm's above idle, that effectively keeps the clutches engaged while going downhill, without costing any speed on the top-end. Check it out..........

I thought I couldnt live without it too. But, I have learned to blip the throttle when it starts to free wheel. Get into the habit and it comes pretty easy to do.

Re: Engine Braking Wanted 2012 RZR 800

I installed the TEAM secondary clutch from SLP on my 570 a couple of weeks ago. I finally got to ride it extensivly down hills this weekend and was very impressed with the increased engine braking. It worked much better than stock.

Re: Engine Braking Wanted 2012 RZR 800

Is there a down side to these clutches? If not, why aren't they OEM?

Only complaint I have read here is that it could make handling dicey on an ice covered down hill descent. I got news for everybody, handling is already dicey on an ice covered down hill descent, especially with my clutch disengaged and me standing on my brakes.
