    A Duraclutch can't compensates for larger tires. It does not change final drive ratio. It provides a great mechanism to avoid belt slippage using a a seperate friction coupler. The friction coupler slips before the belt. As a side benefit, it takes off smoother. But the braking is too strong for some.
    Your oversized tires still need to be addressed even with a Duraclutch. Quote from the website of the manufacturer of Duraclutch, "No clutch/CVT can compensate for larger tires without compromising overall ratio. For large tires we recommend changing the drive train gearing to recover the overall CVT ratio." The Duraclutch is also quite expensive. For 1/4 the price (and some labor) you can actually fix the large tire problem with proper gearing.

    Tesh is absolutely correct.

    Cause and Effect!

    For every 1" of increase in tire size you loose apprx 3.5% of the units original designed torque.
    There are more things that go along with this, but I will not get into that.
    So going from your original 26" tires to let's say 34", you have lost apprx 28% of your original torque. This makes it harder on the drivetrain. This will result in sluggish acceleration, and less torque to move over obstacles.
    So you will need to offset this with lower gearing.

    You can drive it this way, but it may not live long.
