What was the difference between the 90's cat roller and slider secondaries? Was it just the outermost piece(closest to the side panel) that holds the bushings? And can they be interchanged? Thanks a bunch guys.

I converted My 90 Prowler with a Lencco Lightning Shift Roller cover, and it was just a bolt on proposition.

I have an Arctic Cat Roller cover for My 87 ElTigre, and I need to make a spacer for the helix to make it work.

When you convert to a roller from a button cover you need to run a heavier spring in the secondary, because the roller's reduce the friction in the clutch.
If you try using the original spring, your peak rpm's will drop drastically, and the clutch will shift much to early.

Once you get the springing set right though the sled will shift much smoother both up, and back.
Well worth the effort to get it right.

Roller's Do wear out, just nowhere near as quickly as the button's do on a slider.
