    High air flow clutch cover. Kits comes with new clutch cover, vent hose, some fittings and a replacement belt. The kit costs just a little bit more than a replacement belt alone. It recommends to change the belt, however I'm not sure if I really need to. The belts look identical but the part number is different (?).

    I have had the kit for two months and I just it started the install the other day, and didn't finished it. Gonna try to do the rest today.

    Yeah, it does make a difference. They did mine for me at Camp RZR. Took them about 20 minutes to do the whole swap out. Even gave me my old belt back. Did it all for free. Haven't broke a belt since and I run pretty hard.

    Bought a 2 seater for my kid for Christmas, the 2015 came with the kit stock on the 2015, they had one 2014 left, I told them I would buy that if the price was right. They would only go $250 lower than a 2015. I told them the kit alone was worth that. Figured they should have been at least a grand less for the older model.

    Did they do Helix for you too? I have not had any belt issues, been pretty lucky so far but I do watch the temp gauge a lot and stop to run fan when I get thirsty :)

    Kit also has two new pre filters too.

    Yes, helix and everything. I had only broke one belt before. It was the day before while leading a huge group on a haul ass ride with RJ Anderson and all those guys. I was the only 4 seater, but even three of the 2 seaters broke belts and RJ over heated.

    My thoughts are to have a durable tire that can take a bit of havasu rock and trail beating and still be driven on the street. I cut a stock maxis tire on a short trail close to the house and told myself that it wasn't going to happen again. I have confidence in the BFG name as long as hammer isn't driving.

    Added a swing out spare tire rack for our desert rides, it has two clamps with hinge assembly on one side and it uses a push pin on the other to lock and release it. With the 31 inch BFG in place, I lost some visibility tho. It does allow us to continue to use and have access to the storage box/ trunk, that is kinda important for us.

    I added it onto my vehicle policy and has $20k added for upgrades and mods. 6 month premium hovers around $600. Iam adding another vehicle to policy this week so maybe it will come down a bit (?). It's not like I can drive everything at once right? However, I guess it could burn or be stolen at any time.

    Yes Dan, would love to go ride. my schedule owns me right now tho. (Good and bad). :D

    We're heading down Wednesday and hanging through Sunday. I don't blame you for staying away this year. I think it's going to be crazy

    Getting ready for a new dirt season.

    I have been saying this was a good combo but I have not made it a priority to switch over to them yet. After finally trying the "tensor regulators" myself, I ordered a set today. ✔️
    The new "tensor desert series" seems like a good option too, but it only comes in a 32" and really is designed for racing.

    I've been trying to decide what tire to go with myself.
    Did you look at the Fuel Gripper at all?

    I did. The gripper is 5lbs heavier and rated about 500lbs less for max weight. Not an option for me.

    Besides being more durable, did the Rhino lining suppress any of the noise when in the rough stuff?

    what?

    1) I have some pretty bad hearing loss :thumbsdown
    2) I normally have headset on to protect what hearing I have left

    simple answer, I didn't notice noise difference. definitely durable :thumbup:
