    I would say your clutch is set up wrong. The easy thing to do is call Dale at Dirty Dawg Performance and have him set ya up, hes great with Rangers. 651-340-1129

    Bugman so when you take off your motor revs up with no response and when it does catch it goes like normal? I would say that your belt is getting worn is why it is getting worse.

    I would call Dale and tell him what you have; spring color, weights, helix, and what your ranger is setup like, and he will help you out. He is great with the rangers.

    And it could have some sticking weights that takes some RPM's to get them moving. The clutches aren't that difficult but do require some attention from time to time. Dirt and dust and just the residue from the belt can cause these problems and there are bushings that can just wear out. Calling Dale would be a good move if you're not comfortable with looking at it.

    EASY!

    Hi Eric, I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to working on these rangers, but I just finished doing the springs and weights and secondary from Dale and it was really EASY. With the instructions and the pics from this website the change out was simple. Also had some phone conversations with Dale at DDP just to make sure what I did was right.
    One thing I noticed when I pulled the old weight off the bolt going thru them, the pivot for the weight had a lot of rust on them, this could be some of what your getting. My 2 cents worth

    Thats encouraging, thanks.... I can fiddle with it a little bit but am not that confident in my own skills.... I was looking at the box my current clutch came in and it is a dune clutch from EPI.... at least according to their website it says it is for a stock motor.... mine has a bored out throttle body exhaust and some kind of fuel tuner that I cant seem to make work either.... Maybe its time for me to put a little upgrades into my well deserved ranger....

    I will definitely give him a call tomorrow and see what we can do to make my dunes ranger beat my buddies rhino....

    Thanks for your help

    the primary spring is mainly the engagement, there is some good and bad things to this, one is usually a higher engagement can get big tires rolling better, bad part is it can be a pain, the clutch weights don't have anything to really do with engagement, so you may want to try a different spring in the primary, i've always been fond of the heelclicker clutch kits in the polaris, as the adjustable weights can get finer tuning to where you want to be
