if you put bigger tires wouldn't you want the heavier clutch weights that the kodiak has and not the weights that the grizzly has?

You want lighter weights and stiffer secondary spring. This will kick the RPM up further into the engine powerband and putting more power to the wheels. You can also shim the primary or have it machined so it has a lower/wider ratio. It really depends on what you want to accomplish and how big a tire you run. But heavier weights keep the RPM down and keep the engine from making real power that its capable of.

Ordered 18 Gram Weights today along with the Purple Secondary, having my sheave sent out tomorrow to Coop to be machined. Really hope it wakes the Kodiak up off the line!

Let us know how it goes and how do you like the Kodiak before and after the upgrades. Maybe some videos or picks of the mod? Where did you get the weights and spring?

Hello guys, I just finished putting the oem grizzly weights in my clutch along with a 2r racing tip for exhaust... For around 100 bucks and great time working on the kodiak. Money well spent! Huge difference! Especially if you go with a bigger tire... I also just installed 26 inch Maxxis zilla tires (11 and 9 wide) the bikes front end stands up every time. Also, the thing sounds like a beast.

Kodiak 700

Totally forgot to update the upgrades on here, as I have posted this in another forum, I am trying to get some help from someone maybe experiencing the same thing and may be able to tell me if it is normal. I have put Coop45's Modded#3 sheave on my Kodiak along with a purple secondary and 8, 16 Gram weights from EPI. I like the snappy power it brings, put I have noticed a pretty big gain in Engine RPM from a low speed (10 MPH) or so which i figured is pretty normal coming from the shim mod, also I never topped out the machine before the mod and weight change but topped the Kodiak out today after the listed mods and it will only hit 53-55MPH, that is turning 27" Mudlites. Is this normal? Is there another better performing better mod out there such as JBS, no harm meant towards Coop's mod, it seems to be great but just trying mainly to see if the performance is normal. Thanks in advance!

Those 2r Racing tips really make them sound throaty! I had to take mine off do to mine running too lean, the machine continued to cut off so I am waiting on an EHS Fuel Controller possibly to fix that.

i did get the weights installed. that is all i did, i have 27" black water evolutions tires which are a heavy tire, i havent really hammered on it yet because i just had to get the piston rings replaced, so i was waiting for them to breakin a lil more before i really romped on it, but what i can tell is it starts out a lot smoother than the heavier weights.
