Yamaha Drive/Drive2 Clutch Performance Kit

Shipping calculated at checkout.

*We are currently out of stock on drive belts for the Quietech models. We do not have any ETA on them at this time. 

Is your Yamaha Drive or Drive2 struggling on hills or under heavy loads? This clutch kit will help your clutches backshift faster under a load to keep your engine in the optimum RPM range. Choose the stage from the menu that best fits your needs. The stage 3 kit will come with a complete replacement drive (primary) clutch. If ordering a Stage 2 or 3 kit, you will need a clutch puller to remove your primary clutch. We also have clutch compressors available for installing the spring in your driven (secondary) clutch. If you have a 2007-2012 with the TEAM clutches, you will need to upgrade to the new style clutches for this kit to work. The TEAM clutches are garbage, and we do not offer any upgrades/parts for them. 

We have a video available on how to determine which stage of clutch kit you need, what is included in each kit, and how to properly install your clutch components. Please review the clutch installation video before making your purchase so you have an understanding of what tools will be needed to complete this process. Do NOT email us asking which kit you should buy until you have watched the ENTIRE video.

The primary purpose of our clutch kit is to help gain more bottom end torque for better acceleration and hill climbing. If you have a fleet cart and are looking to get MORE SPEED - we recommend adding high speed gears along with the clutch kit. 

We choose the spring for the secondary clutch that we feel will best fit your application based on the information we get from your choices of the drop-down menus. However, this is not an exact science, if you are not happy with how your cart is performing after installing the kit please contact us so we can determine what changes need to be made. It does take around 5 to 10 hours of run time to "break in" a new belt. It is not uncommon to lose 1 or 2 mph after installing a new clutch kit. As the belt gets broke in it will get more grip and improve performance of the belt and usually even gain back a couple mph of top speed. It is best to wait until after the break in period before making any changes. 

What's included:

Stage 1 - Kevlar drive belt and driven clutch spring.

Stage 2 - Kevlar drive belt, driven clutch spring, drive clutch weights.

Stage 3 - Kevlar drive belt, driven clutch spring, replacement upgraded drive clutch.

Fantastic purchase

I was skeptical but hopeful for a substantial change, and boy did the stage 2 kit deliver. The engagement is positive and defined. I have 22” tires on 14” wheels and the stage 2 kit delivered an entirely new driving experience. Prior to the clutch kit the cart would just make a bunch of noise and eventually accelerate, post clutch kit you can feel the torque. Instead of making noise the cart actually accelerates. It seems to be running more efficiently, too. Prior to replacing the secondary clutch and doing the upgrade kit the cart ran very rich and was pretty unpleasant to drive at slow speeds when the fumes would hover in the cart. Now it doesn’t stink nearly as bad, almost like it’s operating in the rpm range it’s happy in.

I haven’t lost any appreciable top speed, even after minimal break in. Previously I could do 31mph riding alone, I later learned the governor was maxed out and I’ve since turned it down. Post clutch and post turning the governor down, I’m still able to achieve 27-28mph with 2 grown men riding.

The kit is pretty expensive for what it is, but I also understand the laws of demand. That said, I’m so happy with the results I’d gladly spend the money again if I get another cart one day.

Thank you for the great feedback Matt! We appreciate your business!

This component is only a part of what I did. I installed the stage 3 primary clutch and high speed gear setup. The entire package made the cart so much better. I am so impressed at the lower RPM of engine yet great performance. Instantly goes 20 mph without trying. Waiting for the belt to break in so I can see what the new top speed is. Today I did 29 mph.

That's great to hear! Thank you for your business Richard!

Yamaha low end

Works good for low end take off but takes away big end speed for on the golf course it’s fine the new belt helped too it measures a good 1/2 + shorter then the Yamaha one that helped too .

We appreciate your business Robert!
