Changing Clutch Weights
I have done alot of research on the 2016 Kodiak 700 & Grizzly 700. I also know that the Grizzly is quicker off the line and can easily pull a wheelie unlike the Kodiak. I did notice that all the drive train is the same, i.e intake, throttle body, engine, exhaust, and transmission. The rear diffs are different (Grizzly has rear disc brakes and different lock, where the Kodiak has wet brake and no different lock). The front diffs are the same. The one thing that I noted was that the weights in the clutch are different, weights. The Kodiak has heavier weights which are suppose to give it lower torque and a slower pull off the line, while the Grizzly has lighter weights which gives it that faster off the line (and easier wheelies) power. Now supposedly the Kodiak will be a few mph faster then the Grizzly, because the heavier weights will keep the belt tighter on the ramps and it also has smaller tires then the Grizzly. So with all this info I would think that if I just exchanged my weights out for the Grizzly weights that it would be peepie on the throttle like the Grizzly. Any thoughts would gladly be appreciated, I did most of my research at cheapcycleparts.com which gave me all the scymatics in detail including pics and part number. I put both the Grizzly and Kodiak side by side and reviewed the drive train part for part and the only thing i found different were the weights in the clutch.
