ANY gearbox seal protector IS NOT compatible with the KWI full floating clutches. You MUST remove the seal protector when you install FULL floating clutches.
What is the KWI CanAm X3 Full float mod and sheave truing service?
Fix clutch warping and factory belt mis-alignment to lower belt temps and free up more HP. 85% of the new X3 clutches are warped more than .010" causing loss in wheel HP and increased belt heat. The secondary clutch is also locked in place by BRP to ensure smooth shifting at idle, however; this causes clutch and belt misalignment during shift out, robbing wheel HP and creating belt heat. KWI has a proven fix that not only will increase your wheel HP but stabilize your belt temps and keep shifting ultra smooth. KWI will true up your warped sheaves and set the sheave angles on both your primary and secondary clutches, set up your secondary clutch to fully float and self-align at all RPM's, service your primary bearing and send your clutches back ready to bolt on and go. Requires you to send in your clutches. You can purchase our clutch kit at the same time and we will install it for you during reassembly.

What to do when you get your clutches back
Your Modified and trued clutches will arrive ready to bolt on and go. They include complete instructions on how to install and torque. ALWAYS use an NEW belt when installing freshly machined clutches, we recommend the 2018 BRP belt. Break in the belt by driving around at varying speeds for about 5 miles, then take your belt off, clean the contact surfaces of the belt and wipe the sheaves lightly with acetone or brake cleaner to remove any belt production compounds. Reinstall the belt, drive around a bit to warm the belt and clutches up then hammer down! NO LONG WIDE OPEN RUNS during the 5 mile belt break in period.
Always drive around at @ 5000 RPM for a couple minutes following any HARD driving to allow the belt and clutch sheaves to cool off. Any stopping or idling immediately following HARD driving will locally cook the belt and create a weak spot which will cause a belt failure soon.
