when i put heavier weights in the cluch will i lose speed am i gaining or losing anything
ok ill give him a call tomorrow or begining of next week and see he only changed the weights in the primary and its the same orange spring98700xc said:Like said above, 5000 is WAY too high engagement for that sled, even with twin pipes it doesn't need to be coming in any higher than 4500, the only time I would even consider setting up to launch at that high of rpm would be for drag racing on ice or grass with a whole lot of chisel studs for traction, another thing that will suffer with the 5K engagement will be overall drive-ability and gas mileage when trail riding, the big block twins make plenty of torque down low so high engagement will just work against you, in easier words to understand every time you go to take off the sled is gonna dig a trench, and when you get off the trail and into deep snow it will just cause more problems, if you can tell us what spring and weights your guy put in the primary we will get a better idea of what your working with, years back when I was running SLP twins on one of my 98 700's I had some polaris 10-62's in it that had a engagement notch ground on the tops of the weights, it came in at or around 5000 and it made the sled very peaky to trail ride, you might say you want to try it but trust me once you do your gonna end up wanting to back it down to a engagement that is better suited for the setup.
Typically when cold 18-2000 on start up is normal but it should drop down to the preferred 1600 once it starts warming up, sounds to me like the throttle cables are adjusted too tight or it could be a problem in the idle circuit, what pilot jets are in it??? and I am assuming it has a boost bottle also.teamarctic14 said:it did start with in 1-3 but not now but im running it low on gas also so could be taking that much longer to pull through i should go fill it up and put fresh plugs in
and let me say this when it starts up it idles about 3500-4 and after it warms it drops to 2500 then again to like 15 1600 or so
