Re: RZR engine brake OMG

OMG, no way I could go back to the "runaway clutch."

Also spent $500 to basically put the old style clutch and helix in, money well spent.

Re: RZR engine brake OMG

Where would you get an engine break for an 09 RZR and about what do they cost? Just got this machine and really noticed the lack of engine breaking last week. Dealer told me that was normal but if there is an after market solution, I am all ears. Thanks.

I agree, 100%. Now that I've got good engine-braking, I can't imagine going back to operating without it! And, BTW, I still retained the two-way bearing in my Primary; it's just that my SLP clutch engages quickly and stays engaged to a MUCH lower RPM. Couldn't ask for more!

How well does it work without the 1 way bearing? I thought you had to have them both to get the engine brake? I can walk much faster then what mine will idle going down hill. I am hoping the 1way bearing issues I read about are from people who jump, mud and run much harder then I do.
