Default How to make your Sled Motor haul the mail in your EZGO

So Ive seen it time and time again... People swap a twin 2 stroke motor into an Ezgo 4 stroke cart and it works.. but the cart doesnt get the acceleration and top speed it should...

So here is the solution:

A Polaris ATV Driven Clutch!

The splines line up with the ezgo rear end... Just slide it on, bolt it up and off you go.

This made my cart twice as fast out of the hole and about 10 MPH faster on top. I am running a secondary clutch off of a 07 Sportsman 800 made by Team Industries.... However just about any of the Polaris ATVs will work. (I talked to the tech guru at Team and he said the 800 clutch is the best one to use if I could find one ($80 on Fleabay)
... There are lots of Ranger, RZR, 500, 700, 400 clutches out there.

It is a roller clutch that is fully tunable...

My motor is a yamaha 440 Fan Cooled that makes about 55hp

The cart flys now! So far I have hit 50mph and am still dialing it in. My rear end is 10.5:1 ratio.

Hope this helps some of you out that are building sled powered carts....

I'm glad someone posted this. I asked a few months ago if anyone knew if another clutch would work on the ezgo and no one seemed to know the answer. Now only if we could find one to fit the engines,hmmmm

If you have a SRV 540 fan find a PSI pipe for it, night and day you will be amazed. Run the high altitude kit in the 540 clutch.
