I have a 09 600 Dragon that is a flat out dog. 02,04,05, 600Edges eating me up. I added 144 studs, all else stock, sled topped out at 91mph after a long lake run. Has about 725miles on it. Anyone with any ideas on what to check out, others I spoke with are seeing triple digits.

check your clutch springs. how high of RPM's are you getting? did you buy it used? if so check the gear ratio! Track Tension?

Just expected more top end on a HO 600 Cleanfire. My 05 anniversay edge had a lot more grunt to it than this thing does.

Bought the sled brand new last January,max rpm I saw was 8250, I don't know what the gear ratio is whatever stock is. I will assume the track tension is fine sled was recently serviced, did not have any top end last season either. O2 I had was a 600. The new owner just Ripsawed it and the thing flat out goes.

check track tension. otherwise i think the 600 dragons were geared like ditch bangers so they might not be too quick, but they get there fast

Right out of the box it didn't have any snot, dealer adjusted oil pump said it was rich. This seems to be my first dog out of many, all other sleds I have owned in the last 8 years made me respect them. This one gets no respect.

just checked. stock gears are 23/39. stock gearing in 09 800 dragon is 25/40. so it has balanced gearing.

isnt that pretty tall gearing? i have 42 bottom on my sled.. maybe drop down to shift the clutchs out all the way?

it is if anything geared a little low. if speed is what you really want, put in 24/41. that will giv her some zip. but will be a little laggy on the low end

Does anyone have an outlet with a gear ratio chart to speed output? I must add that most of my riding is done in Maine and Canada, pretty much high speed trail riding.

I've got a chart, but it's for the Edge's. I think the IQ's have a different pitch track and maybe different drivers. I don't know if my chart would work for you.
