Some parts arrived

I got my Rhino early last spring and spent some time getting it back into good running condition. It was a bit neglected, but in overall decent shape. Wheel bearings, suspension bushings, brakes, etc went into it and it was starting to come along pretty good. Wheel spacers, new wheels and tires and it was looking like a nice machine. Then I started digging into the clutching, watched lots of videos and reading on here and took the clutching all apart and cleaned it all up and ordered the slug kit and slippery washers from Hunterworks and the machine turned into a very capable and fun unit.
But... well the top speed just wasn't there for the odd time I needed more than 60 km/hr or 37 mph. I also wanted to take the machine down to Yuma this December when we go to visit my parents down there, and they travel pretty quick from time to time.
So, since I've already used some of Hunterworks products I got a hold of Todd and asked what he could do and he recommended his Best kit. So I ordered it up with one of his new belts and here it is.

I'm really happy with the kit, running stock engine and exhaust and everything else stock, my top speed went from 60 km/hr to 80 km/hr, or 50 mph. This is what was claimed, but very satisfied that it is an accurate statement. I'm just thankful that guys like Hunterworks and others are still making products for this machine because it's a great unit. So thanks guys.

NICE!! Mine is similarly equipped from Hunter Works (without Springs) and I'm thrilled with the low end. It's never been a speed demon but that's okay as its hard to navigate the woods over 50 mph anyway. You'll be happy!

Had the Rhino out on Saturday with my son. Very happy with the results, cruising down the forest service roads you can do so comfortably at 70km/hr or so, basically 45 mph. Obviously trails are substantially lower speeds, but when you want to cover ground a bit quicker it's now possible. And the engine isn't revving high either. Great stuff.
Some pictures of a couple of smaller fishing lakes we went to.
