Terry's Tuning Tips
ECU: The 2018+ Gen 2 body Style Polaris 1000 Ranger models are gutless and slow. The big reason for it feeling extra sluggish is the 2018+ models weigh 250 lbs more than the old body style 2017. The factory ECU programming and clutch calibration is designed to restrict power and speed. Our ECU tune will eliminate those power and speed restrictions along with many other awesome features. These 1000 Rangers go from 82hp stock to 98-101hp after our tune. Most machines with stock size tires can see top speeds of 75+ Mph. Clutching is absolutely needed to allow this ECU tune to function and perform properly. Our ECU tune/clutch kit package is the biggest bang for your buck performance gain available!!! It will make your Ranger rip! Each tune and clutch kit is specifically setup for your model and tire size. For more details about the Ranger 1000 ECU tune/clutch kit package please click on the ECU tuning product below.

Clutch: The stock clutch calibration on the 1000 Ranger models is absolutely way off the mark when it comes to performance. It offers clunky slow acceleration and minimal performance/fun factor. Our Elite Shift clutch kit is the most popular clutch kit choice to go with the ECU tune. It offers very smooth take off and is designed to allow the engine to run at the proper RPM where it performs the best with our ECU tune. The kit consists of primary weights, primary spring and detailed instructions. Our ECU tune/clutch kit package comes with an Elite Shift clutch kit or you can choose our BlackMax adjustable clutch kit which offers you the option of custom clutch tuning. If you are running larger than 31" tires you will need to purchase the Mudder Secondary Spring which squeezes the drive belt harder to prevent slippage under heavy load conditions. 
If you are having hard shifting out of gear, or experience heavy wear on the inside edge of your belt from the stock Ranger clutch EBS system then I highly suggest installing our EBS lockout shim and check the alignment of your clutches. The alignment procedure is listed below. Starting 1-21-19 all 18+ gen 2 body style clutch kits will include alignment shims and alignment instructions because clutch alignment has been such a big issue from the factory. I have noticed that over 50% of the stock machines that come into our shop to get a tune kit installed experience hard shifting out of gear and need the clutch alignment corrected and or the EBS lockout shim. We offer a free clutch alignment procedure on all machines that come in to our shop to get a tune kit installed!!
We have found that the factory clutch does not offer much for longevity and is destined to fail. I have many reports of failed clutches on completely stock machines at around 2000 miles.  The rollers are weak and the bushings get sloppy, the EBS roller will fail ect ect. If you want the smoothest and absolute toughest primary clutch available for your 2018+ Ranger then you need the P90XT upgrade primary clutch. The P90XT clutch is the smoothest shifting and strongest clutch available for your 2018+ Ranger 1000.  If you purchase the P90XT clutch from us it will come fully loaded with weights and spring ready to install on your machine.  Don't forget to grab a clutch puller that we offer to remove your old clutch from the tapered crankshaft. 

Belt: The stock Polaris belt is weak and jerky. It cannot handle any type of stress or abuse. I have found the G-Boost belt to be the absolute best performing, smoothest, and longest lasting belt on the market. I highly recommend installing one!!!
