Nice choice but gonna have to wait.. haha. I will consider Elka stage 3s for my next upgrade after I wear my 2019 shocks out more, they work very well I think.Elka is telling me at least 8 weeks out.....It's going to be a long 8 weeks!
I'm thinking about sending my clutch to Coop? Any opinions on that? I've never had an auto clutch apart before.
Thanks for all the info guys!Nice choice but gonna have to wait.. haha. I will consider Elka stage 3s for my next upgrade after I wear my 2019 shocks out more, they work very well I think.
Regarding the coop mod(machined primary sheave). I highly recommend it, particularly if you upgrade to larger tires , even if you only got up 1 in taller and wider like I did. I had mine done last winter when I put her to sleep for a few months. Phenomenal , one of the best bang for the buck performance upgrade for the KQs. Got all the bottom end possible and maintained my top speed , low speed tractability and engine brakeing also improved if you can believe it. I’ve put over 2000KMS on her since and the season ain’t done for me yet..Lol.
From a maintenance perspective, I recently did a belt check and it revealed no increase in belt wear , still well within spec on original OEM belt!
The CVT clutch components are easy to get to and disassemble, there are quite a few YouTube videos for reference and we can assist too.
Taking the clutch a part to install the Coop part is easy, I would say the only difficult part is getting the one nut off it. He also sells finished ones so you don't have as much down time. It might be worth checking around were you live to see if you have any performance shops that do it, could save you some money.I'm thinking about sending my clutch to Coop? Any opinions on that?

I'm curious why you shipped directly from Elka, seems like there are plenty of dealers in Ohio. I ship a fair bit to the US and most items over $200 get the once over by customs. Many of the carriers UPS/FedEx etc like to charge fees for clearing the package through customs, prepaying for taxes and a number of other things which really add up.One thing I read in the small print about the shocks is if the item being shipped into the U.S. is over $2,000.00 then it has to go through customs and is subject to additional fees through the shipping agent. I didn't know that. I was well under but news to me.
