Dalton Industries ’20-’23 Can-Am Defender HD10/HD10 Max Clutch Kits
This kit is primarily developed to help recover power losses from adding oversized tires to the Defender HD10. Provides a significant improvement in performance and belt efficiency for the applications listed.
Most stock models with 27” stock tires do not necessarily need a clutch kit, however, larger or heavier tires can be a serious drag on performance. Rotating weight and added gearing from larger tires hurt acceleration and top speed. This kit improves bottom end performance and improves belt grip without any further loss of top speed from the larger tires. Throttle response is improved and better back shifting of the belt when the vehicle senses load from soft terrain or hills.
The custom, adjustable flyweight lever arms were developed specifically for this application and work in conjunction with the rest of the components in this kit. They have a slightly different curvature and location of mass to allow the arm to squeeze the belt harder on initial acceleration. A better clutch calibration for controlling “rate of shift of the belt” with larger tires tire. Includes a custom ground billet helix ramp that controls the shift specifically for this application. The kit can easily be set up for efficiency with different sized tires/applications. Helps restore RPM to the proper zone. Designed around the use of the most popular 28-32” tires. Tires larger than 32 should be looking at gear reduction for better efficiency. The instruction manual tells you exactly how to set up for different tire sizes and situations.
