Here are a few that are on apskarting.com I've heard of several people using them. Most will tig weld a pully to it and run a belt set up.

My pro-x runs #35 chain, and have had any problems. Invest in a chain breaker to do away with the conecting links.

I use the Noram Star on my outlaw because it can be mounted inboard to keep the sprocket as close as possible to the side cover...... easier on the crank. I ran the #35 silver chain and #40 Tsubaki chain on my secondary. No abnormal wear or problems all year! I would use this setup again in a heartbeat.

Yes, get a clutch you can run chain "inboard" with..

 Mini cup places chain to end of crank... I used a Mini Cup with 35 on primary with no problems, but next time would prefer chain closer to frame

Star clutch is the best and most affordable dependable option out there. Holds up well to big hp also.

If your going to a ragb I would convert the clutch to belt and use a belt. I did and have NO problems at all. Buy the 18 tooth and a blank pulley from tsc slides right on
