2009 rhino 700 top speed

Hey guys I seem to be reading everywhere that the top speed for a rhino is around 40-42 mph without any work done. I bought my 2009 rhino 700 3rd hand and im only pushing 50kph or 30-31 m.p.h before the governor kicks in and I lose power. Is it possible that they had the computer tuned to run that way or am I missing something. Any help would be appreciated.

Your wet clutch may be slipping just enough to hit the rev limiter or you might check and service the the sheaves. I doubt they tuned it that way, pull the cover driver side (don't remove the primary sheave cage as it supports the shaft) and in nuetual rev the engine high and see if the belt goes to within 1/4" from top of primary sheave.

My 2012 Rhino. bone stock, was lucky to get 35-36mph. I've done some stuff to increase that number but even at that I'm lucky to get much more than 53 mph. I'm okay with that though as I'm now approaching the ages of rock and I don't need to be hauling butt anymore. When you're out on the trail speed is not the major thing, pulling power is and if I had anymore "pulling power" I'd likely pull myself into a grave..

That would make sense. I’ll have to wait to pull that off. I’m going over the entire unit and I have had it cleaned well yet so lots of dust and dirt to fall in. I’ll add it on my list to see if that’s the problem. I don’t need high top speed either but I would like my machine to be running the way it should to stop and future issues

It would be rare to be a wet clutch issue and a 99% chance your primary clutch and rollers are just dirty and the rollers can't go to full travel so start there.

If you never been in the clutch before there are some tricks on reassembly that you do not want to miss so our our machined video for reassembly

There is a link

Ok thanks for that. I will use that video plus my buddy is going to help me go through the whole clutch. I need a new one way bearing and I think I will be slugging it too. Want to do all the clutch work I can while it's open.
