OEM clutches with KWI upgrades can handle up to 38Psi of boost, but any additional power can cause big, expensive problems. We didn’t think that was enough power, so we fixed it. We’ve teamed up with TAPP clutch to engineer the ULTIMATE fix to your high horsepower clutching and crankshaft problems. Say goodbye to crankshaft damage and complex tuning limitations and say hello to the KWI TAPP Clutch.

*** THIS IS NOT AN OFF THE SHELF TAPP CLUTCH, THE KWI FLOAT MOD WILL ONLY WORK WITH THE KWI X TAPP CLUTCH AND KWI WILL ONLY SUPPORT TUNING FOR THE KWI X TAPP PRIMARY.

*** KWI CRANKLOCK MOD REQUIRES YOU TO SEND IN YOUR CRANKSHAFT FOR MODIFICATION. ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES MAY APPLY.

*** ONLY GROUND SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS ITEM. NO EXPEDITED SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE.

KWI TAPP CLUTCH SOLVES THESE PROBLEMS:

  • STOCK CAN-AM X3 PRIMARY CLUTCH GOVERNOR CUP TAPER CAN ONLY HOLD 400 HP (38PSI OF BOOST) BEFORE IT WILL SLIP AND DESTROYS THE CLUTCH. THIS IS EVEN MORE OF A PROBLEM WITH LAUNCH CONTROL.

  • STOCK CAN-AM X3 PRIMARY CLUTCH CRANKSHAFT TAPER CAN ONLY HOLD 450 HP (45PSI OF BOOST) BEFORE IT WILL SLIP AND DESTROY YOUR CLUTCH AND CRANKSHAFT. THIS IS EVEN MORE OF A PROBLEM WITH LAUNCH CONTROL.

  • CANNOT EASILY CHANGE ENGAGEMENT RPMS OR ADJUST SHIFT RPM FOR DIFFERENT CONDITIONS.

  • STOCK CAN-AM CLUTCH IS NOT VERY ATTRACTIVE

  • EXISTING BILLET CLUTCH TIE BRACES ARE BULKY, CUMBERSOME, AND MAKES CHANGING THE DRIVE BELT A PAIN.

  • THE NEED FOR AN ATTRACTIVE, STRONG INTEGRATED SCATTER SHIELD FOR PROTECTION FROM BELT FAILURE

BY USING A CUSTOM KWI MODIFIED VERSION OF THE TAPP PRIMARY CLUTCH PAIRED WITH THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS; PATENT PENDING KWI CRANKLOCK MOD, FLOAT MOD, NEWLY REDESIGNED RF2 TIE BRACE YOU CAN EXPECT TO COMPLETELY SOLVE TAPER SLIP ISSUES, CLUTCH SHAFT FLEX, SCATTER SHIELD SAFETY, AND MOTOR TO GEARBOX FLEX. AN ADDED PERK IS IT MAKES TUNING FOR ANY HP, ALTITUDE, OR TERRAIN SUPER SIMPLE. 

THE KWI TAPP PRIMARY CLUTCH INCLUDES CUSTOM KWI CALIBRATION OF RAMPS, SPRING, ROLLERS, AND WEIGHTS (CUSTOM-TUNED TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS) ALL READY TO BOLT-ON AND GO.  UNDER MOST CIRCUMSTANCES, ONLY SLIGHT ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE NECESSARY. ADDITIONALLY, AS WITH ANY KWI PRODUCT, YOU WILL HAVE KWI SUPPORT FOR ANY TUNING AND TECH HELP.

TUNING THE KWI TAPP CLUTCH:

FLIPPING THE RAMPS

THE KWI TAPP PRIMARY CLUTCH COMES EQUIPPED WITH FOUR RAMPS WHICH CAN BE FLIPPED IN OPPOSING PAIRS. FLIPPING THE RAMPS FROM POSITION A TO POSITION B WILL RAISE ENGAGEMENT AND PULL DOWN THE RPM. FOR CRUISING AND DAILY USE, USE SIDE A, FOR RACING, USE SIDE B.

ADJUSTING THE RAMP ANGLE

YOU CAN ADJUST THE RAMP ANGLE BY ADJUSTING THE CLICKER STYLE BOLTS. THE HIGHER THE NUMBER, THE HIGHER THE RPM. ADJUSTMENTS MADE TO THE CLICKERS MUST BE DONE IN OPPOSING PAIRS TO KEEP THE CLUTCH IN BALANCE. FOR EXAMPLE, ONE SET OF OPPOSING PAIRS CAN BE SET TO TWO, WHILE THE OTHER SET OF OPPOSING PAIRS CAN BE SET TO SIX.

WEIGHT ADJUSTMENTS

YOU CAN ALSO ADJUST THE RPM BY ADDING OR REMOVING ALLEN WEIGHT SCREWS AND WASHERS. REDUCING WEIGHT WILL INCREASE RPM AND ADDING WEIGHT WILL DECREASE RPM. WEIGHT MUST BE ADDED IN OPPOSING PAIRS TO KEEP THE CLUTCH BALANCED.
