The Speedwerx Hypershift clutch kit is designed for today’s snowmobile engines, which are very high tech and run very clean and smooth.  Stock snowmobiles are clutched to minimize fuel consumption and emissions. What we at have found is that engagement RPMs very low, which makes the engine work before it gets into the torque band.  Many clutch kits are designed to simply “wake” the engine up, allow the primary clutch to engage higher, and allow more throttle response by accelerating from deep in the torque band at higher RPM. We would love some feedback (please and thank you) from anyone that uses this new Speedwerx Hypershift Clutch kits on their 2018 ZR and M, in both 6000 and 8000 engine series. Get ready, here comes winter!
