Clutch Cover

Does any one make a clutch cover that will retain the KEBS and give the higher top speed?? I have not been able to find NEW one that retains the braking, and I have been told that if you machine the stock cover it will come apart.

Not sure but I think utvcrap.com has one. Go to their site and call their phone number and ask. Good Luck

I do not believe that is an option my friend.

It is a option and UTV Crap has them. The issue according to Dalton is, it is a stock cover that has been machined and it could get destroyed because it makes it too thin.

Losing the brake is not a big deal, it only kicks in under 5mph.

Well I guess that is what I was meaning. A machined factory cover will still have it, however, a completely aftermarket billet cover will not.

Has anybody that have the milled cover admitted that theirs has "exploded" or came apart yet? Theoretically, yeah it is possible to weaken the plate with the milling.
UTV Crap has sold many of these and I haven't heard of any coming apart yet, I could be wrong, I just haven't heard of it yet. Puddle Jumper has one and he's been running his quite some time now, he hasn't had any problems, and I am sure he is nice and easy on his...LOL.
Other than milled or modified original plates, I haven't heard of one out there on the market.
..I've heard that, most that bought the one that disable the braking are very happy with theirs too.

I know that I have not heard of any of the machined stock covers failing.

I have to admit, I have not heard it either but I was worried about it.

How tight is the fit to the plastic cover? Could a supplier not add/build up the outside of the metal clutch plate and make it safe but still not disable the KEBC? Is it just because its that much more cost effective to use the stock plate instead of starting with a piece of metal and using a CNC machine? To me safe and functional KEBC is worth more $ than a machined stock cap that isn't safe or disables the engine braking. The question then is just how much more.

Thank for all the info. I guess I was under the understanding that the braking was controlled all the time. Since it is below 5mph I am not that worried about it, we just do a lot of rock climbing and high mountain trail riding and did not want to ride the brakes too much. What cover has everybody been using? (machined, or Billet)

Thanks
