I have a 2008, and going to put a clutch in. I have looked at all the brands, there all about the same price and do all about the same. So what do you guys think?

They are not all about the same. I've run several different ones & none compare with the JBS. I currently have the JBS sheaves on an 04 660 & on an 07 660. They are awesome. You won't regret going with the JBS & his customer service is fantastic.

I changed out a Hunterworks for 1 of mine. He milled where the oil seal goes & left a razor sharp edge that was cutting into the belt. Might wanna check yours & round it off so it doesn't cause you any belt issues. The customer was much happier with mine.:banana:

As for me, having 3 different sheaves, no difference between JBS and UTV on the stop watch in 300'. Since they perform the same, go with the cheaper. There is a lot of hoopla over one sheave or the other. I have all 3 that are most commonly spoken of, 2 of the run the same times! Why not buy the cheaper and have money left over?

0-300' on flat ground won't prove much....there is no load.

test on a slight uphill...that's where in my test the JBS was better than HWorks.

I'll take a shave and test it.

well it looks to me that the od weights would kill lower end..unless the low end part of sheave was ground way down . thats only reason i went with HW sheave..i wanted more low end..maybe im wrong

I have rode 7,500 miles in the last 2 1/2 years testing in my rhino with all the different sheaves & not just on a 300' run. Mine stands out over all the rest racing in the woods & up & down hills. I have always & will always ride a Rhino ... I made my sheave because there wasn't anything out there to make me happy. So I guess all these people on here who did the same thing I did WASTE MONEY are all delusional too. Everyone that had a UTV Inc sheave & then bought mine said mine is better by far. I'm gonna keep letting my customers do the talkin LOL. BTW all core refunds are instant at JBS!!! JBS also has the longest hours & the best customer service ... they know who to call =)

Nope ... where are you reading that at? Mine has the best low end, I promise! Watch my videos, any of the other guys outrunning Commanders & RZRs in they're Rhino? You can see me pulling away from the other bikes, this did not happen until we made our own sheave.

If you don't believe me, pull your sheave out & look at the sharp lip at the seal that is cutting the belt. How can it have the best low end riding on a sharp edge? The belt has to ride on a flat surface so that it has good contact. The one I have has 60 miles on it & the greaseless rollers already had a flat spot worn.
