Finally received my machine back. ..it definitely rips. Banging gears much faster, gets to 80 right now. Can't wait to get into the woods. Feel like it helped 1st gear tremendously...

That's what I was wondering, if the turbo was fairly quick to spool and improve low end?

yes, is this true? do you get any low end gains? don't get me wrong, going 80mph is awesome but I want a little more low end "grunt" on the trails

I did test 2 turbo kits the mpi and the race proven you need to check the spring clamps on the oil lines going in and out of the oil tank and replace them with some bolt type clamps they intend to move due to the high speed of the oil moveing in and out of the dry sump.

Ok just got back, this thing is a new animal, scary fast, I believe it has more low end grunt. No problem putting around in 1st gear, crossed a big log, climbed some hills, hit some tight trails, and zipped down a road. I didn't have any problem going slow or luke a bat out of ****. Honestly Its just impressive, everywhere I took it, it performed flawlessly. Glad I bought the turbo, it was fast before turbo, now its complete!!! Recluse is next, although I'm not sure it's totally needed at this point! !!

Not sure about the Recluse clutch, someone already burned theirs.

I've got a couple hundred miles on my rekluse with no problems, I still use my clutch pedal quite a bit in the slow technical stuff, hills, launching it, deep mud. I could see where someone could burn up their clutches with the rekluse if they didn't know when to stop and use the pedal.

Using the pedal or letting the Rekluse slip the clutch, both are hard on clutch plates. The aftermarket clutches help. Bottom line is that the YXZ is geared way too tall in first gear for a lot of riding. Lets see a video of a YXZ and a RZR or Maverick stopping half way up a big sand hill and then taking off. Not sure a YXZ could even pull that off with paddles. Not that I am a RZR fan and I really like not having a belt. That is the main reason I bought a 2015 RZR instead of a Maverick, it is WAY too hard to change a belt on them, I had one, I know. I can change a belt on a RZR in 15 min by myself. The YXZ is a step in the right direction IMO. For some it may fit the bill like it is. The motor sounds REALLY nice. I think they will change it some or come out with another model in the next year or two and getting it a lot closer to what it needs to be for some of us. I hope so, the RZR wheel bearings only last 400 miles at most for us around here. I think the Yamaha bearings will last longer, more in line with the Maverick. I owned an early model Rhino and still think Yamaha has the best idea on the 4X4 set up, 2 wheel, 3 wheel or 4 wheel it is the drivers decision. I think YXZ is a good thing and it has set Can Am and Polaris back on their heels and made them take another look at the things they both are selling us. For now I am going to drive my POS Polaris RZRs and wait a year or two and see what Yamaha comes out with.
