You do a lot of riding at low rpm and speeds?

Nope, the engagment was way extreme, and I would need to putt it through deep water crossings so the belt slipped alot when it was in the sandy water. Other than that its WFO.
What do you think, Is it safe to finish the summer out. I just got a new spring from CV Tech
to lower the engagement, so that's better, but now that I have the clutch off I don't know if
I should put it back on and run it.

Sure why not continue to run it you know the condition and the risk avoid low speed keep a eye on it once it wears through it will eat up a belt quickly

No I am serious the clutch was working for you before you noticed the wear?

I have seen clutches used so long it wore a hole in the clutch faces then ate up the belt before the owner noticed the wear and knew anything was wrong.

You know its worn and can wear through so keep a eye on it check it after each ride day when it wears out to the point it will eat up your belt you know you will be walking soon.

My powerblock wore the same way, and I know the one on Assuiehoons (my old Pilot) wore that way also. One was a HRD powerblock and one an ALT powerblock. I NEVER ride slow and only idle for very short periods of time. I plan on running mine until it wears though and flies off before changing it out.

What belt are you running???? Both my Pilots had the 4x4 tuff belts. Not sure if that has anything to do with the wear pattern or not.

Mine is a daco belt, I'm getting a clutch from NELLY. Its a 94c I've never had one of these, I hope they're as simple as the PB. Anyone know what the stock engagment is on a 94 ( how many weights and what spring?)

If your looking for simple you will like your 94c. I'm on my way to the shop now, I'll check the color on the stock spring. I believe they all use the same amount of pucks, 6, they're just different weights. I believe the heavier they are, the lower the engagement. I had known nothing about clutches at all and this made it super easy for me. I took mine completely apart, cleaned, and lubed it. I think you'll like your 94c, very simple and it works good. If I was looking for a clutch I wouldn't use anything else.

Sorry, I got side tracked yesterday and didn't get a chance to check the spring color. I do believe it was green. The orange spring should be close. I'm using the yellow spring(4200), which is one RPM step up from orange, with stock weights and mine hits at a hair under 3600RPM.
