hi i have a 06 f7 s/p all stock except for a can,hand guards,and a chrome diamond plate windsheild . i am just wondering if i should go for a clutch kit first or picks if i go with picks i am gunna do 153. just want ur guys thoughts on what i should do first? and if dan from ODS can point me to the right clutch kit for me. i do alot of really agressive trail riding and love to be in the front of the pack of sleds i ride with ( thats why i bought an f7 Rockerdude ) any help is greatly appreciated. and i am allso thinking of getting a 2 degree timing key if dan can help me with that too i would really appreciate it.

Picks....Safety issue, helps you stop. Most people on here will tell you yo get rid of that can and run a stock one. I have an ODS kit in my '03 and really like it.

Actually wether or not you have studs should affect which clutch kit you choose. Both of the D&D kits I've purchased were different depending on studs or not.

I would try to do all mods before clutch kit. Every mod will change clutching a little, & when you order a clutch kit let them know everything you have done to sled.

Talked to an aftermarket rep the other day, they have a bunch of studs on sale, seems not many people are running them anymore. (Its about time!)

Maybe if trails are icy or on the lake on occasion sure, but not necessary, otherwise they cost money, they add weight, their a pain to put in, their hard on the track, they rip up floors, they rip up trailers, need special stickers to run them on certain trails.

100% agreed on everything said. Picks first, clutching second ... and the ODS kit is a great all-around kit.

Definitely studs first! with the extra clutching your gonna lose everything you gained cause the tracks gonna spin like crazy... having the sno pro track should help immensly, but def. stud it, You won't regret it

Labonte... ****** and I were discussing the ODS clutch kit, we've both heard great things. What were the positives you saw with it... and negatives if there were any?

no offense c/c28 but the hills,ravines,pipe lines ,and old logging roads that make up alot of the trails in N.PA.& S/NY
in the ALLEGANY region are steep and deep and narrow,very narrow alot of the time some one has to stop to let others get by.

Woody's "mega-bites" are a great all around stud, go with aluminum backers and the long nut. This helps with the long studs bending (assuming you have the snow pro track).. good luck and you'll love them!
