I can't stop laughing. Old boy read on yxz group about all clutch failures. So he goes out to test his vehicle. Records the video (below) ....

Sure enough, he's got 100% proof the clutch is SOLID after this thorough test. He's so confident now that he flipped the camera off as he return to say "F YOU HATERS" Bahahaha.... you just can't even make this stuff up.

OH AND FREE BONUS ... dude mentioned he HAD to put it in 4WD to make this monster of a hill.

Either way glad your having fun.

At one point, Facebook was in such a frenzy about the YXZ clutch failures, it was thought they were just blowing up moving in a straight line. Also alot of people were curious about the low speed crawling, starting on hill, etc. So I made a cheap video.

Ahh... Ok, gotcha.

I do see the clutches are still breaking though. Even the fan boys who previously claiming ... "you have to learn how to drive them" .... and now I see couple those guys have lost clutches.

I'm sure Yamaha will make some changes if it's problem.

It's not a technical crawler.

If your riding is below 5 MPH with constant stop and go, this is the wrong machine no doubt. Ed Lamb (the guy in the pic) said he was crawling logs and rocks. If it was a entire trail of logs and rocks that a RZR would use low range for, then it is no surprise he burned up a clutch. Was that Yamaha's fault????????? Would that trail be any different on a YFZ450????

This guy REX was previously on the "You've got to know how to drive these" fan boy bandwagons.

The irony.

Fact of the matter is some of these guys should have gotten a Wolverine. That's the correct machine for the slow technical stuff. The YXZ is built to RUN hard and fast in desert/dune conditions. Doesn't surprise me a bit that some of these guys with what they are trying to do are frying the clutches. Common sense will tell you the YXZ is not built for slow technical stuff. Plain and simple. You just need to buy the right tool for the job. CVT is the only real choice for that stuff. Should be obvious, really!

I didn't even have to pull my XP out of the garage to be proven right.
