Thanks for the input guys I will definitely be airing down the tires a bit in the future. As far as the clutch goes, this is the 2nd race I've done ever but probably 50 hours of dune riding on it, last I checked the fibers looked fine

I would think the clutch is probably ok, especially with the set up you are using. I think using stronger springs makes a big difference in how long it lasts. My Barnett kevlar clutch fibers have lasted a very long time.

Ya clutch should be fine. I put 30-40 motos on my last oem clutch and it was still well within spec but I replaced it for a spare. Mess around with tire pressure during practice and let us know what you find out.

Y'all would drop your jaws if I told you that my clutch has been in there since 2001. I was gonna replace it, but the clutch fibers looks just about as good as new ones.

Your not using your clutch enough if its that old.  You could be faster with more clutch use.

Like feathering the clutch to keep the rpms up? I used it all the time in the dunes but not as much on the tracks yet.

That'd be my good guess, Bryan what motor and setup are you running?

Sorry, i was referring to Ryans post.  XC you dont need to feather the clutch at all really.  Clutchs would last alot longer in XC.  For MX you will want to feather the clutch more the faster you get.  No matter how much tq our motors make, it wont be as good as a four stroke.  And that being said Top 4 stroke riders have to replace there clutch ever few races to give you an idea how hard they are on them.  My point was that if you have the same clutch for several years of racing, your leaving alot of time on the table at the track.

So kyle a 50 ft lbs puma as cast won't keep up on a 4 stroke I have both and you're welcome to come prove me wrong. Till I see it I'll believe it from your video you need to learn to learn to ride in timber as well as use the full bike.
