t2 clutch options.


Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently bought a 2012 trooper and am looking for a clutch upgrade. I know some offer a kevlar disc with a double diaphram plate. Has anyone used a 4 puck metallic clutch disc on these? I have a 4 puck in one of my cars and it works great. Just looking for some opinions. Thanks.

I think I'm the only that has used a double spring pressure plate. I initially put it in with a Kevlar clutch plate. Didn't like it. It didn't slip but it was to grabby. Couldn't keep it smooth when I needed to have it smooth like in rock crawling. When I took out the old clutch which I abused continuously, it still looked nearly new. The whole friction surface wasn't even hitting but only on an evenly spread patchwork of high spots which was making contact with the flywheel and pressure plate. It wasn't even seated in yet. I changed it because I could get it to slip in tight spots. Figured it was on its way out. Finally I pulled the Kevlar clutch plate and put the original plate back in but with the double sprung pressure plate. Smooth as silk and no matter how hard I worked it, it didn't slip at all. I could be in a real tight spot in big boulders where I would have to rev the engine despite having 130hp and 126#/ft of torque and Renegade gearing in order to get going and the clutch would let out smooth and not slip when approaching being engaged all the way. As far as I'm concerned it is the only way to go. If you do the double sprung pressure plate be sure to reinforce the throw out bearing forks or they will break.

Not familiar with the 4 puck metallic plate.

Thanks for the input. Mine is still stock for now. Just put 30 in. zillas on. We'll see how those work this weekend.Trying to find the limits of the machine to know what to expect on the trail and to decide on future upgrades. Also ordered the viper fuel controller from silverbullet and have heard good reviews. Time will tell. Do you have a turbo or a supercharger set-up on yours? From who?

Lenny - good to see you are still posting. Hope all is well and your next project is underway. Better get done soon as we should get together again in the fall sometime and then plan a spring trip again! Never did ask you how to reinforce the forks for the throwout bearing. Next time I do my clutch I will upgrade pressure plate and go with stock disc but now how to reinforce the forks is the question.

trackguy22, Mine was supercharged. Did it myself. Snapisone, who is a forum member here bought mine. He lives in Rockford, IL

Bruce, tried to call but the number wouldn't connect. I'll do a drawing for you on the reinforcement of the throwout fork.

I ran the trooper this weekend with the zillas. No issues either,but didn't run in the mud yet. With the taller tires I liked the lower rpm at the same speed than with the originals. Didn't mind the ride at low speeds,I have a S-10 blazer with tracks for the winter.

      So I've got a Hisun 550 that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.

      Less than 40 miles can barely start. Dealer is working with Hisun on a number of other issues on this UTV. Can not get clear info on the meaning of these E codes this is getting. Anybody have some clear info for me?

      Hello, 
      I found an 08 Renegade for sale and looking to purchase it.  I haven’t heard too much about these machines and any insight would be much appreciated.  Are they good machines?

      Hey all. I need to change my plug in my ut400 and I remember seeing people in here saying to get a certain one that was better than what it came with. What was it?
      Also I need to do an oil change. Are the tractor supply oil change kits ok to use?
       
      Any help here is appreciated!

      I have a 2012 Massimo MSU 500 that died. I found that it didn't have spark and the fuel pump wouldn't run. Checked all fuses and none were blown.
      Went through and replaced the ignition coil, HT lead and spark plug. Still no spark.
      Thought it could be the fuse/relay box because I didnt' know much about the machine at that point so I replaced it. No spark.
      Then I replaced the ECM just because I was running out of ideas. No spark.
      I removed the 9 pin connector and hardwired it making sure that they were no wires got swapped. Still no spark.
      Then I replaced the wiring hardness. In doing so, I replaced the 9 pin connector with new ones. I made sure all wires were matched up between the engine harness side and the other harness assembly. Still no spark.
      I have no other ideas what to do. My fuel pump doesn't kick on and I have no spark. I have 12V on the fuel pump, ignition coil and fuel injector, but no ground from the ECM control.  I unplugged the fuel injector and waited for a diagnostic code but nothing ever came in. It makes me think that the ECM isn't powering up. I've checked for 12V on pins 18 (purple wire) and 15 (white and black wire). I also checked for ground on pin 2 (black wire). All are good.
      I am out of options here and I have no idea what else it could be. I have all connections redone and are coated with dielectric grease. I've checked all easy things like fuses and making sure I have 12V in the right placed. I would appreciate any help.
