well after riding trails 21 and 39 at windrock 2 weeks ago I think I am for sure gonna put a clutch kit in it. my dealer said they stock dirty dog clutch kits so will probably go that way anybody have any input on clutch kits?

I would talk to them direct and also some of the other companies. I have messed with, (clutching and weights) , because of our style of riding in the area. Basically we are trying to get gear ratio, thru a belt drive clutch. My opinion.....not happening. Maybe/hopefully, I'm wrong.

Most clutch "kits" I've found, raise the engagement point of the clutch, to put it in the "power range" of the engine, before the belt engages. ( IE....higher stall. )

My theory on this is, it works good for higher rpm functions, ( racing / mud / sand ). We don't do .

My thought is: i want the belt to engage as soon as possible, off idle, and as hard as the pulley can squeeze it. ( no slippage due to limited power). ( rpm=force=heat=slippage)

Some primaries can be machined with a smaller bearing, to give the "lower" gear ratio because the belt will then ride lower in the "pulley". Improvement, but no cigar in our world on the east coast/ Appalachian region.

With 32" tires, you've basically killed your gear ratio, for slow speed rocks.

Ultimately, I don't see you happy until you either ; (A) go to portals , (B) change out the trans gears to the ones in a high lifter edition, (C) all the above / plus clutch kit, and then i would drool. Prayer

But remember; i know nothing and I'm open to all information my small peanut can h suspect old.

Duraclutch looks like a good design,especially for Polaris. You'll have engine braking all the way till idle like most other machines.

Looks like they have taken the (Yamaha/Suzuki) style clutch and made a few improvements on it.

You now will have minimized the wear on your belt, but the internal centrifugal clutch is now the " "fuse/wear point." You can still blow a belt though. This design just lessens the chance. Now your either going to have to pull the primary for maintenance/inspection for clutch wear or ,just like everyone else, go by how engagement "feels" for wear. You shoot a belt on the trail, you just install another. You burn your centrifugal clutch on the trail, your getting towed.

I have had this style clutch,(stock),  in a Yamaha Grizzly running 27" tires. Yes, i had to replace the centrifugal clutch at around 2500 miles along with 1 way bearing. Not using low range when needed all the time was operator fault. One way bearing, was bearing fault.

Here's where my previous post was aimed. Think of it like this; our cars start off great in first gear. We add bigger tires, without changing differential gears, and basically we loose first gear and are trying to start out in second gear. The transmission/clutch is going to see the wear. We can't change diff gears in our machines, so we need to change it somewhere else. The manufacturers of clutches are trying to help.( and doing a fine job), by modifying the clutches to handle this extra stress. It helps, but ultimately you have to put back what was lost, gearing. But to answer your question, yes the Duraclutch design would probably the best clutch to look at getting.

Im running 32 on a 2015 high lifter. I did break one axle trying to pop a wheelie on hard dirt road, stupid,....Im still running stock clutch and on second belt with almost 2000 miles on machine...all of the rzrs in our group run 32s, the canams run 30s and smaller and they had to go to RCV axles.
