Default Team clutch kit

Looking for recommendations on a clutch kit for a 2016 m8000 ltd.
in Ontario so sea level and not always easy to get parts from the states.
Pretty sure my dealer deals with speedwerx so theres that.
Fairly new with real sleds but know enough to realize the clutching isn't so great.

You may also want to consider that the 3 inch tracks are not great on trails and aren't build for speed. Not sure of your intended use but a 2.6 is better but still not real trail friendly. That being said the 2016 ltd is geared at 19/50 with 7 tooth drivers. That was to slow for deep snow at elevation riding, I geared mine to 21/49. The clutch kit will need to fit your usage, so a little more info on what the machine will be doing would help. If i was building a M 8000 ltd for low elevation I would be using a smaller lug track, 8 tooth drivers, re gearing and then clutch it accordingly. I hope this helps.

Alright thanks for the input. I gusse i should have mentioned theres no trails for this guy. I may be in the "flat lands" but i make the best of it. Technical tree riding is what i do. Im not the type to go straight up the hills we do have.

That being sayd im not looking to spend a ton of money. Just feel like there's a alot to be gained. I really figured gearing would help. I replaced the aluminium sprocket with a steel one (just for piece of mind) and was going to gear it up a bit but dealler suggested otherwise. I think he thought i just wanted to go "faster".

So maybe im just better off gearing it up and see how that works. Is a different length chain needed to do that?

MDS probably work pretty well down there..

Not sure seconndary setup though....XF helix and spring most likely

Yeah, research the XF setups then go from there..

The chain will fit on a 21/49 set of gears, AC re-geared in 2017 to 21/49 on all the M sleds with 7 tooth drivers. The helix in your sled should be a 48 and that is made for elevation, there is big gains to be had. A softer secondary spring and more primary weight is also needed.

id start with factory stuff, make sure dealer did low elevation calibration (on a 17 it was different drive spring and weights)
then do the gearing as suggested.
then ride it a lot in your honey holes and see if its not just perfect. jmo.
