which over drive plate do you reccomend

I am looking to purchase one of the over drive plates from one of the many sources out there and can not decide which one that I would like the most. The difference that I am seeing is that one of the plates still allows to have the engine brake and the other one eleminates the brake (KEBC). Has anyone had experience with any of these and which do you like.There are times when going down steep hills when I think I like the brake but wonder if there would be more times when I would like to not have it when riding on flat surfaces. If I get the one that eliminates the brake will it get rid of the clanking or back lash in the drive train? I do not have any more engine mods other than the Muzzy pipe and I will be purchasing the MSD as soon as they are out. Thanks for all your info. I love this site. I learn more here than it even seems like the dealer knows. My dealer sales manager did not even know what a dalton clutch was.

We have a full billet overdrive cover on sale for $125.00 Our billet over drive cover has a built in fan design that will help with clutch cooling. We will also have a billet cover that will go over the hole so you can fully remove the KEBS. I have driven both and like the car alot better without the KEBS for the driving we do. PM meto get the Dasaracing billet over drive cover for $125.00

DASA has a great price on a billet, best I have seen.

You simply have to decide if you need the braking or not and if you are going to do a engine kit later. If not a machined stock plate is the way to go.

We have the Dalton and our own machined one but if you decide billet get DASA's

Just shim out the stock cover a little bit... Same gain and you can keep the KEBC if you like.

Save the money and put it toward something else.

$125 shipped

I'm scared to shim out the plate with washers due to inconsistent washer thickness and balance issues. May work don't know.

They're both doing the same thing... They're spacing the cover away from the spider which is what bottoms out thus not allowing you all that gearing.

There are no balance issues either... 3 Teryx's and about 6 brutes all have this done with 0 issues. You'll have the potential to go about 72mph on the rev limiter with the cover or the washers. The brute will do anywhere from 80-81.

Guess next time I'm in the cover I'll take a few pictures which will be awhile because i just adjusted the belt.

how thick are the washers you are using to do this and how many are there. I think 6 or 8 is that right?

If you search and check this out on kawaieriders, you'll see that the washer trick has been done...countless times....and I haven't seen any issues or complaints there, not to say that there aren't any...just haven't seen them....please don't get FST involved with this thread....j/k..
