Installing the 100% Canadian made Specialty Motorsports Syncrodrive for the Arctic Cat Alpha/M8000/Riot X or Yamaha Mountain Max is a great way to free up power and lose a large amount of rotational and static weight. There are many gear ratios to suit your riding style and compliment your build perfectly. All without permanently modifying any OEM parts. All parts are made of lightweight anodized aluminum to not only look good but last with virtually no maintenance. The belts used are a high quality but affordable 8mm pitch carbon belt. That means no break in and no adjusting for stretch over time.
To find out your current gear ratio take your bottom gear and divide it by the top:
Bottom gear/Top gear = Ratio (63/26=2.42)
- Over 3 LBS of lost rotational weight
- Over 10 LBS of static weight Lost
- Available in 7 different gear ratios
- No break in period
- Direct bolt on without modification takes approx. 3 Hours
- Gear ratio and belt changes in minutes
- Lightweight molded oil tank that uses the stock mounting of the oil pump.
NOTE: Gear Ratios: 2.42, 2.52, 2.63 all use a top gear that utilizes the stock jack shaft. All other gear ratios need a new jack shaft and hub type gear. Kit includes upgraded Jack shaft and oil tank reservoir for these gear ratios.
Some 2018 M8000 machines will need extra pieces for the lower gear as there is multiple different driveshafts used that year, If your driveshaft has splines all the way to the end there is no extra pieces needed. If your splines are machined down there is an extra kit needed that is 125.00 (SMMC-1889). Refer To picture #2
**Will not work with stock can due to interference with the lightweight oil tank.**
