Hi guys I’m new on the page, I need some advise on clutching for my 2019 700 kodiak, I’m running on a 2” lift and 30x10r12 black mambas right now with a stock clutch...that needs to change lol. I’ve ordered a shim kit for it just wondering if there’s anyone with a similar tire set up that can give me some advise on what I’ll need. I use my quad for hunting and mudding mostly. Any advise would be appreciated

The shims are good start to help with your low end. Swapping to grizzly 20 gram rollers and a gold secondary spring or even a white should also be installed. If you have the funds look into a machined sheave to gain even more low end.

Ok I was thinking about doing te spring nuts wasn’t sure if I should go with gold or just a purple one. How much would you shim it?

Most can get 1.7 mm of shims in and still see splines for the outer sheave. With those big tires I wouldn’t go with anything less than a gold. I run 1.5 mm shim 28 inch CST wild thangs and I run a gold spring with stock 30 gram roller weights. This combo has worked pretty well for me but I want more low end . I have a machined sheave I’ll be installing and I’m going to experiment with lighter rollers.

With those 30" heavy tires, a gold spring minimum for sure, and 18 gm Weights. 1.5mm on my kodiak age there was barely any spline left. I would never have been able to do 1.7mm.
But some can. A machined sheave will benefit you greatly.
