I dont want to sound like a noob, but it is what it is! lol

On the few carts that I have built I always just had the stock ezgo clutch machined to fit a Honda 24. I played with the spring in it and took out spacer in the secondary?

I am missing a lot on going with this setup instead of buying another type of clutch setup?

Are you missing something? Maybe.
Are you happy with what you have?
Do you want to spend some money for what
may be a small gain.
Sled racers test hundreds of different combinations
of springs, ramp profiles, helixes, secondary springs
and gear ratios to find 100ths of a second in 650 feet.

The last several people Ive seen swap from the ezgo to another couldn't believe the improvement. Me personally, I haven't experienced it, just what others have posted.

We don't know how your cart performs now and
can not say if it will be a big gain or not.
To know you have to test and keep notes
speed, et's and rpms.

The difference on your average run of the mill 20hp cart is like adding 5 extra
HP just by changing from a modded ezgo clutch to something designed for what your doing.

It depends on what you are after, I've ridden a sled that engaged at 7K rpm and ran 10K after that and it was not so nice on the trail. Sure went fast drag racing though, and also had 300 studs in the track. Another issue with carts is some stock clutches are smaller diameter that limits gearing and some take a smaller (narrow) belt, IMHO they are substandard but can work. I like to see more standard 7.5 or better primary and over 1" wide belt like used on sleds.

Fact is lawn engines have a very wide powerband and lots of torque down low, very unlike a 2 stroke sled (or even 4 stroke sled). So it matters far less what rpm they engage at, sure it changes how it runs but not that much. In general make it run at 3-3.5K all the time if you want max power from a lawn engine. Of course you will have a hard time making it run smooth, or not make lots of noise all the time, or make it use less fuel. I do agree some clutches are not friendly to tuning and that sucks. The yamaha weight clutch is a good comet type size and design, but with no spring its not very friendly.

In case it is not posted, this place bought Comet clutches and is supposed to sell parts for them.

I wanted to add that I own an 1984 ezgo 2 cycle that i converted to a 3cyl diesel and used the 780 clutch when cart parts plus carried it. i also used it on a 2 cyl 18hp briggs engine that came out of a craftsman lawnmower. it worked good on both engines, on the diesel it was loud and clanked on every revolution, this new clutch is smooth and silent. very very nice. it engages smoothly and "shifts" very nicely. much better than the comet i must say. this clutch also allows, with tuning, for higher idle speeds. i had to have the briggs idle to the point where it would almost stall. i did notice this issue with some of my customer carts had did engine upgrades and used the 780 clutch
