Removing '11 rhino speed limiter

Sorry I couldnt get the search to work on my phone. I was wondering if there is a way to clip a wire or something and remove the speed limiter? Instead of buying a programmer or whichever gets rid of the speed limiter. Thanks guys.

I believe it must be done via a CDI box

No way to clip a wire or anything like that. I recommend an MSD box if you can find one; they seem to be in short supply right now as MSD have stopped making them but haven't released their new one yet. I had a Dynatek but gave it to a buddy, and am more happy with the MSD. It will delete your speed limiter and increase your rev limiter.

Okay that's kind of what I figured but I was hopeful. Thanks again.

I think this is a good question.

Is the limiter that I'm always hitting on the straight aways a speed limiter or a engine RPM limiter?

I don't want to over-rev the engine just to milk a few more MPH out of it. But I'll gladly say goodbye to an arbitrary speed limiter. I have a JBS Hot Rod sheave and get 49MPH out of it before the engine goes, "brap...brap...brap!"

My buddies kicks in around 58-59km/h. It's a 2011, it would hit 67 when he first got it, now he's lost a lot of top speed but he burns his belt sometimes, that might shave off speed. His starts hitting the limiter around 50km, i think it's just a speed limiter not rpm.

Look into the Jbs sheave, it gives you better low end, lower cruising rpms, and raises your rev limiter to roughly 49-50. You wont be dissapointed. I have both and definatly see and feel more gains with the sheave! After the sheave then look into the MSD.

Right on guys. It's my buddies rhino but I'll pass the info along. What the sheave worth? We'll have to take it apart and service it, it only has 700km on it and it lost 10k in top end within the first 300km, not sure if he burned the hell outta the belt or what. What's the best way to clean a clutch? Any products I should avoid?

Be sure to check the cam plate sliders, mine broke and lodged between the cam plate and metal grease shield, preventing my sheeve from closing all the way, lowering the top speed. This happened the first time I took it out. To clean sheeve, lots of old rags, and brake cleaner, or something similar. It's a messy job! One time and you will want to replace with greasless parts.

The MSD FI eliminates the reverse speed limiter, and allows you to set your rpm limiter, timing, and fuel ratio via computer when you modify engine.
