'09 Rhino 700 needs more power!!

Whats the best route to go for more power in my '09 700? I have 27" XTR's and an EPI clutch kit but when I get into deep mud or muskeg the rhino is having trouble turning the tires fast enough to clean them out. Any ideas?

Try a MSD with a greasless overdrive primary clutch,and a UNI filter. If you still feel you need more....then add a Muzzy dual exhaust.....if you need MORE put a Hotcam Stage II with Kibblewhite valve springs.....If for some strange reason you still need more, then put a 11-1 compression piston in it. IF you are STILL wanting more, Port & Polish the head....and add a 54mm Billet throttle body. If you are wanting it bad to the bone......bore it to a 734.....
You can build a Rhino in "Stages" where you can just add a little at a time and see if you like it.

The sheave will give you a higher top speed.

What spring and weights were in the EPI kit? You should have done it in steps,. lighter primary weights, then secondary spring.

I am not sure on what spring or weights were used. The clutch kit was installed in by the dealer before I bought the rhino, part of the "package". All I have is the installation instructions and a part number, WE436461. I am not really looking for top speed but would like more bottom end power.

Hmm, I will have to look into that. Something has to be done, feels like I am driving a golf cart.

Try adding a Stage II Hotcam, with Dual Muzzy's, 16gr greaseless overdrive weights, a EPI gold secondary spring, a UNI Filter, and a MSD with Hunterworks maps in it.
Call Todd at Hunterwoks at.

Trade up to some 27 inch Outlaws, will take alittle more to turn the tire but will clean out better with slower wheel speed.

It all depends on how much cash you have to work with but your rhino will always be only as good as your weakest part once you start........ it dont quit brother

So the Muzzy's and the air filter are in going on as soon as I get a chance. I am looking at the MSD and not sure if I should buy a stock one or get one shipped up from Hunterworks? Is the hunterworks one that much better? Also wondering how big of a job is it to do the clutch work myself, I have never tore into a yamaha clutch before. How big of a job is it and how many specialty tools will a guy need?

Contact WVHotRodRhino and get one of his machined sheaves. it made a HUGE difference in how my rhino pulls from the bottom to the top, low gear is loooww now. he is under the vendor section as JBS.
