Those look cool but this ain't a race quad it's a trail beast but I don't see dropping 400 in a clutch.

OK if its JUST a trail beast then stick with the upgrade that DL provides which you might already have. Those will hold you just fine cause it aint like you will be dumping your clutch.

Look, if you don't see dropping $400 in a clutch, then you've already made your decision... You're a trip bro...

BTW, the direct drive will set you back $450...

Yeah 450-500 I can get a brand new one for 400 and my mind ain't made up. If I buy a slingshot for 250 or 3 then have to turn around and buy a direct drive for 450 I'm out 750 bucks instead of 450 you follow my trip now.

The DirectDrive Lock-out has a "quick change cover"...which mean's you don't have to take the entire side cover off to access your clutch...which mean's your not buying a new clutch cover gasket, draining the oil and draining your coolant when you do clutch work.

I've owned a SS and a DD. Do it right the first time and get the DD. Lighter, less rotational mass, more clamping force. Don't over analyze it. Look at what the pros run.

If you don't want to spend the $$ now on a lockup, do as brettjsand2000 suggested and get the DL spring kit and use OEM clutch.

Spending all that money on a build and skimping on the clutch setup doesn't make much sense IMO. Put the power to the ground.

This the answer I've been looking for. I didn't want to waiste money on one just to need the other one. I'm not trying to skimp I've done dropped enough to cause a divorce so why stop now. I was told along time ago if you gotta do a job twice it wasn't done right the first time. Thanks guys do what ya wish with thread now DD it'll be.

Good choice. You won't regret it. Run it with an OEM clutch and you won't have any clutch issues. No need for stiff springs either. I ran OEM springs and had no problems.

I'm running mine with 3 stock and 3 aftermarket springs With 3 grams of fly weight. With the lengthened clutch arm it works great pulls easier than the stocker!

DL told me go DD use his clutch kit and his springs. His springs are fine but 2 hours into a ride it gets a little hard on the hand I think just 3 soft oem springs and 3 stiff springs will work fine.
