The Yamaha YXZ Gear Reduction System is here! Watch the video.

The Wait Is Over!

If you have experience with the new Yamaha YXZ1000R, then you need to check out what we have for you! 33% gear reduction in all gears, new replacement 1st gear with 70% reduction and a patent pending clutch oiling system

The Yamaha has been released since September of 2015 and we have a few products we are working on to help improve the platform and each one seems to be a success so far. The most popular item is the gear reduction we do at the transmission, it gives a 30% reduction on 1st thru 5th and also reverse. In stock form its geared to do well over 80mph but electronic speed limiter does not allow those speeds to be reached. With the power delivery being so high in the RPM range, it works much better bringing down the ratios so that the power can be used more easily and make the car more driver friendly. The gear reduction also lets people run 30’s or 31’s and have the same pull and feel as stock tires.

The other gear reduction we offer is in 1st gear only, which adds an additional 35% reduction, making it 70% over all. This low range is what you get when you shift a RZR or any similar UTV with a Low Range on the shifter. Our new 1st gear turns it into a “granny gear”, allowing you to climb and navigate at slow speeds with plenty of torque and limit the wheel spin. Starting and stopping in a precarious spot is no longer a worry with this. Check out our 1st gear crawling footage here on Youtube.

Our last upgrade we are offering is the clutch drum mod that increases the oil capability of the stock clutch basket by using redirected oiling paths to cool and lube the more friction prone areas. It really gives the clutch the ability to be super heated, hot enough to billow out smoke, but keep a firm and full pedal. The footage we have of our YXZ in the rocks is using the STOCK clutch plates and discs! They can hold up to the abuse, but we also offer and recommend the Barnett clutch plates and discs. The addition of our clutch mod can work in conjunction with any aftermarket clutch system, the Rekluse clutch is a popular clutch.

We have 2-3 units equipped with all of our mods out at 2016 King of The Hammers and they are blowing the doors off of the RZR’s and putting their YXZ where no other Yamaha can even compete.

We are taking orders for the next batch of gears we are having shaped and there is a $1000 deposit needed to reserve a spot in line. Once your deposit is in we will ship you a box outfitted with dense foam packing so you can ship us your complete transmission. When we receive your transmission it takes about 4-5 days to split the cases, modify the porting, modify the clutch and install the gears. You can give us a call anytime or shoot us an email.

Tubeworks’ New Sheet Metal Housing for 9″ and 10″ Drop Outs

By | New Product | No Comments

The Ultimate In Rear End Housing Weight Savings Is Here!

Our new all sheet metal housing is an industry first to be offered to racers and enthusiasts. By eliminating the heavy 4130 tubing we are able to drastically reduce the over-all weight of a standard axle by over 40lbs! Shaving weight from any unsprung weight item has many advantages. An intricate web of inner trussing provides excellent strength characteristics. A special heat treat process is used to strengthen each different metal thickness to its maximum hardness, preventing a compromise of durability that can occur when heat treating large sheet metal assemblies.

These new housings are already being used by both short course and desert racers alike. Each is methodically assembled, welded in CAD designed fixtures and uses our 2.5″ and 3.25″ snouts.

  • Heat Treated Housings – Multi-hardness treatment prevents a compromise of hardness in the assembly
  • Signature Welding – Specialty filler rods utilizing different material compounds allows the proper amount of layers to be welded to maximize fatigue resistance
  • Surface Grinding – All housing face plates are machined after all welding is complete, ensuring a perfect 3rd member to face plate interface
  • CAD Designed Fixturing – Mounts are accurately placed with precision by utilizing CAD programs and laser cut fixtures
  • Registers for Mis-Aligns – Each CAD Designed pivot mount features laser cut guides to reduce the load on the fastener and ease the assembly of suspension components
  • High-Strength Hardware – 3rd members are secured by high strength studs, preventing differentials hardware to loosen, strip, or pull through the face plate.
