I can set up the 825 clutch and hand fit the wear buttons which is not done from the factory. Of the clutches I have done, the one that I know for sure gives good engine braking is the one that is on my personal 825. It is a warranty replacement for the early clutch that failed causing me to redo it.. There are at least three different clutches, so I am not sure exactly which clutch/belt combination is on my personal Gator, but one of the reasons it engine brakes well, is because it engages at about 1250 RPM.Kinzepower, Mbdiagman, dluck and dane
Thank you all for the information. Stepping back to questions on Engine Braking
Where are you all at ? I would like to improve engine braking on the 2013 825i that I'm purchasing. Where do I go?
Yes the sliders are reworked and refitted. The posts are modified. They put their own weights and springs in them depending on what the customer wants. I haven't had a noisy one come from them. They have an adjustable weight kit in development for them... only one set so far has been built but its doing well. They will be end user adjustable for shift out and engagement. The entire family owns 825i's so there are plenty to test on around there. They are always changing and trying new things.Thanks for the picture Winston! And I thought that MY workbench looked junky.
How much do they charge for an 825 clutch? Do they hand fit the wear buttons? Do they get them perfect or is their clutch noisy. If the wear buttons are fit properly, which is a tedious process, it will not refuse to release and it will not be noisy. It is a very fine line to obtain a clutch that is BOTH quiet and will release properly allowing for proper shifting.
Not only is it an advertising link I can't believe people/companies go live with websites that are very not finished. Either delete the pages, put information on the pages or just don't make the site active until you at least spend the effort to finish it to some degree.
Hello MB diagman after reading so man post on this clutch issue I figured I reach out to you for some info. Recently purchased an 825I from the local dealer used for the 5 acre ranch, more for the wife to use around & grandkids to use. Don't need it to go 50 mph , don't use it to pull anything heavy just a pleasure use really. But concerns me is it a bit hard to put in gear all the time, reading most post it's a sticking clutch ? Or linkage issues but after pulling the belt cover it appears the clutch is all the way released? But the belt is still getting turned? Any ways it's a 2011 on sticker dealer says it's 2012 but hey it's used but what can I do to help ease the shifting a bit, lower the rpms. Quiet the exhaust any. How much do you charge to re-work a clutch? What is changed when your finished? What kind of a charge is it? I live inWichita Falls north Texas , I need to I guess order a special tool just to take it off ? When your free drop me an email or message ok
