So I just recently bought a lightly used '17 XP4 1000 which came with a lot of goodies and some nice 30" Mongrels. I also was given the factory BH wheels/tires which is nice but not part of this issue.
Ever since having it I've felt like something was just not right with the clutch or belt grip but I don't know I'm not a Pro but I suspected maybe it just needed a clutch kit as I'm in Utah and at a high elevation plus running 30s. So after a lot of research and internal debate I decided to pull the trigger on a Dalton Kit which I installed earlier this week. The kit went in smooth and I was all kinds of excited for my first ride in my newly transformed RZR only to have the air sucked clean out of my lungs as what I ended up with was/is actually a slower RZR.
So you may ask did I install the correct weight combination, well I set it up according to the sheet provided and I have confirmed with Todd that what I did was not wrong. So based on what he asked me to do I performed a few test runs up to 70mph to see where the shift phase was and where the RPMs ended up. Based on those results he concluded something else is going on that is not related to the kit and he asked me to put it back to stock and run same test. So I did just that and here's a short clip of that test
, as you can see at 70 MPH I'm hitting 8650 RPM which I guess is way to high and just confirms what Todd said regarding the issue being something else.
Well unfortunately I'm not a CVT pro and I have absolutely no clue where to even look next, all the parts and pieces seem to be fine with no damage or weird behavior. What I do know is right now the top speed from a run I just did today with the Dalton Kit installed maxed out at 67 MPH and the RPMs actually hit 8800 for a moment then settled back down to 8600ish...
I've also done a belt travel test in the secondary, attaching pics, too me it looks fine, this was run WFO!
I'm really hoping some folks here with more knowledge than me can help me figure this out, thanks!
