What is the Float Mod, and what does it do?

The Float Mod is a modification that offers several advantages:

  • Increases wheel horsepower and accelerates your vehicle more quickly.
  • Produces quieter clutches and maintains ultra-smooth shifting by eliminating warping and belt chatter.
  • Lowers belt temperatures by resurfacing and recutting sheave angles for more efficient shifting and increased wheel horsepower.
  • Fixes warped clutch sheaves and factory belt misalignment, common issues in X3 clutches that cause belt chatter, vibrations, power loss, and increased belt heat.

You have two options to consider:

  1. KWI Fast Float: Offers a 48-hour turnaround time.
  2. KWI Float Mod: Standard turnaround time is 10 days.

KWI has a proven solution used by X3 owners worldwide. They will true up your warped primary and secondary sheaves on their ultra-precision CNC lathe, re-cut the sheave angles on both your primary and secondary clutches, replace the secondary rollers with upgraded KWI rollers, set up your clutches to fully float and self-align at all RPMs, service your primary bearing, and replace any wearable or damaged parts (additional cost). Your clutches will be sent back ready to bolt on, and you can also purchase their clutch kit, which they will install during reassembly.
