vfj clutch

installed my vfj clutch last night didn't get to run her much, but the very minimal amount of riding I was able to get in seemed like higher rpms, before engagement, belt is in specs of deflection, just wondering, also with the engine brake unhooked, do you get any different noise from the cvt case, maybe it is just gear lash being louder than normal without having my pass. seat in, and all plastics back on?

I just installed mine a week ago, and yes it will stall higher rpm before engagement. I did not gain any mph on the top end. I believe that it pulls a little harder through the power, but that is it.

I think I know the noise you are talking about, when you are at a stop and you start to give it the gas you can hear a little clinging sound when the clutch engauges ?

Was that you that I seen post on another site that you were only getting 45 mph at top end in high?

didn't really get mine to top speed, just heard a noise that I was unfamiliar with, so took her back to the garage, found out that when I shimmed her and changed the secondary spring, that I wasn't supposed to use any grease for the 4 keepers in the driven clutch, so I pulled out the clutch again, and am going to clean it all up, luckily it didn't spatter anywhere, probably due to my short lived put, talked to john also, he says that the angle he puts on the sheaves and the stiffer primary spring causes a higher rpm before the clutch engages, so that side of my concern is ok, just need to clean up my secondary. Also John said, just for those that are unaware as I was, that there is a necessary break in when doing his mode, of 12-15 miles, before she is good to put the hammer down, and during that break in time one may notice a little slippage, fyi.

Are you saying, you had this done, no top end and you are not sure if it helped or not?

I have never had one but love the dalton clutch kit

thats strange that in the last month or so, there have been 3 people not seeing results as claimed online from the vfj mod.

I have come to realize that the net is nothing but hype. there is useful info, but dont buy something expecting something extrodinary like someone else claims.

i mean sure, I can lay down some black marks and smoke the tires, but really havent seen alot on top end.

I need to give john a call, but also need time to verify jetting and everything else.

I have been thinking of doing the VFJ mod also - are you guys seeing good improvement in take off but nothing on top end? I am more interested in low end gains myself - I have very heavy 28" Mudwiesers, also curious if you're using aftermaket CDI unit and if so did that give any quicker take-off.
