Is this a good idea or no?  Ive got 2 buddys with rhinos and they need to replace their rollers.  I have looked at the hunterworks conversion and it seems like a good idea, but dont know anyone that has tried it.  Any input would be great.  Thanks

I have them installed in my Grizzly 700 and I have the Overdrive set for my Rhino 700, I just haven't installed them yet.

I put the Hunterworks greaseless rollers and sliders in one of my Rhinos a couple of weeks ago. It's a very good setup and would recommend the mod. Give Todd a call at Hunterworks, he's very helpful and will sell you the right parts for the type of riding you do. While you're at it, get one of his Tri-fire CDI boxes too. All I have to do is bump the key and it fires right up! Not to mention raising the rev limiter and the novice safety switch.

I was asking for a buddy of mine.  He has access to a parts washer so it shouldnt be a problem.  He is gona have the primary machined while it is apart so hopefully we will notice some nice gains when it goes back together.

I don't think you can run the OverDrive weights with a machined sheave.  Check with Todd at Hunterworks.

I dont think you can either. I think it says that on there website when you pull up the parts.

there are round greaseless weights that you can run in a machined sheave and there are greaseless overdrive weights that are shaped like a trapazoid that you can NOT run in a machined sheave.  If he hasn't bought them yet, just tell him to get the od weights and he'll save about $150.  The OD weights give you the same effect as a machined sheave, raising your top end without losing any bottom end, but the OD weights don't give you "roller flop" or a shift feel like the machined sheave will.  Also, if you have a 660, you'll need a 700 cam plate to go greaseless.  If you are going greaseless, you'll also need to get the cam slides that are greaseless and those won't fit on a 660 cam plate.  For the od weights and cam sliders, you'll be looking at around $100 for all of it plus the cost of a 700 cam plate, which I believe is in the neighborhood of $50.  DO NOT TRY TO RUN GREASELESS WEIGHTS WHITHOUT GREASELESS CAM SLIDERS. You cam sliders will melt without the grease and you will have problems

The yamalube is safe for the wet clutch and you are not affecting that buy changing the rollers. There are other oils out there that are wet clutch safe as well.

well there are numerous cases of melting sliders on the 660 even with grease.

I am having ///airdam machine the primary like an AC.  Not for top end, but for more gear reduction like with a shim, but no loss of top end.

The greaseless rollers, cam plate and sliders is 125 from HW.  We will not be getting the trap shaped weights.  Thanks for the heads up and all other info.
