I keep hearing the teryx is hard on belts and they burn up easily.I only have 3 hours on mine, so no issues yet.Do you need a clutch kit to correct these issues?Is the belt a serious issues.

The dalton clutch kit really helps this out and improves performance.

Don't fix what is not broken. You buy the Dalton for one of two reasons, one your buring your belts up or you want more performance.

Can't tell you how many hours I have right now because of the contest, however, I just burned up my belt this weekend. Will be replacing it with another factory belt here in the next few days. The key to belt longetivity is proper belt tension.

Ok with that said, should I be bringing an extra belt to the dunes?? Will the clutch kit give any advantages to kick some ass on rides? Or leave alone for reliability?

Well the Dalton Clutch kit is actually an approved Kawasaki Part, therefore, it will not void your warranty.

The clutch kit will actually help you with your belt, however, belt deflection is key.

Not a bad idea to have a spare belt, however, not sure a belt replacement is something you want to do in the dunes.

EPI also has an excellent clutch kit for the Teryx. As for the "ain't broke, don't fix it", i'm not buying it.
There are enough stories now, where stock or near stock Teryxs are breaking belts. Rhinos have never done this.
One of the reasons the stock Teryx belt has issues is the secondary spring on the stock clutch is not set up properly. It has too much pressure initially, and is too light as it gets compressed. This causes varied belt tensions (not deflection) and increases belt heat. When the heat surpasses the belt's limit, it fails.
If anyone would like to discuss the finer points of Teryx clutching, don't hesitate to contact me. I also stock the EPI Teryx kit.

My don't fix what ain't broke idea came from the fact that he has not broken a belt yet and if he has not then no need to fix it.

The reason the Rhino has not been breaking belts like the Teryx is it's belt stays in constant tension with both sheaves and it has a wet clutch.

Two different styles of clutches.
