I just got a 91 Wilcat 700 to finally get back in to the sport. It's been awhile. Well I had it out over the weekend and found that the clutch engaged at 5000 r.p.m. is there a quick fix to this, I really don't know a lot obout these clutches.


Thanks in advance,
DJ

5k is a little high but I wouldn't be surprised if that is how that sled engages. For quicker clutch engagement hmm heavier weights? I am not a clutch expert so don't take my word on it. Plain and simple.

My sled engages at 5500 RPM

to make it engage lower, you have to either put in heavier weights, but that will bring your top end RPM down, which can cause the engine to labor, causing it to blow, you can also change the spring to a softer one, but that might rob you of midrange power.

If you go to heavier weights you have to go to a stiffer secondary spring to keep your RPMS up.

if you change one thing with clutching, it affects everything.

The one thing you really want to know what you're doing, and is it hard to find a real expert.

If it doesn't launch when it engages then I'd leave it. Engine might not have much power any lower?

Yeah, that's another thing, if it engages at a really low RPM the engine doesn't produce large amounts of power at low RPM, that's why it engages higher.
