I was thinking about taking right to QSC and have them do clutching and install GR but maybe I'll do it myself. Thanks for the reply.

[QUOTE=ronster_12;8913]has anyone had troubles with the 850 transmission poping in low when pushing a load? Mine is to the point where it wont move at all it just sits there and pops, something in transmission is jumping over. I've only had it a few months and its been at the dealer twice, they are clueless and say theyve never had this trouble before, I'm very frustrated with machine and the dealer, my friend bought one a few weeks after mine and his dont do it, anyone else had any issues or news to this problem??[/QUOTE Remove the linkage from the transmission select low gear from the lever at the transmission then see if it still pops out!

No problem, the gears and clutch kit came from team industries. Great guys to talk to and they produce most of the trannies for polaris stuff anyway. The inside of my xp tranny is cast with team industries anyway. I went with a high altitude clutch kit. My quad is now faster with the 28"zilla's than previously with stock tires...

Cool, I am going with the TEAM Ind. gear reduction but I don't know what QSC uses for clutching; Adam seems very knowledgible when it comes to tuning the Polaris clutches, he told me that they pride themselves on low end gains. I don't care about top end but I want some stump pulling grunt without burning belts. Thanks again for your insight, I can tear down a Honda or Yammer with my eyes shut but the Polaris will be kind of new to me. A little trial and error and I think the 550 will be a pullin' machine, with the comfort of the family room sofa

Sorry for hijacking this thread.....I'm done now.

I would definately do it again. Especially if you plan on using bigger tires. I can't imagine what my 30's would be like without it. I can still drive in high almost everywhere, except where the mud starts getting deep or sticky. Also you don't need a very big clutch kit with the gear kit. Just a slight increase over stock is all you need.
