The CDV is implemented to suppress drive line shock. Less stress on the drive line as it (clutch) gives in certain situations. To test, drive on a steep incline (you will not find this around Tampa) and punch it. The clutch will slip. I was told if you remove it the drive line warrantee is void.

Now, you are starting to experience the 540/6 clutch learning curve. Low idle rpms and how damn quite it is, it takes a while to get used to IMO!
Now, I was going to remove mine, but, mine never slips even when I race and hammer it.

Ha Ha!!
