Well i have a 97 t-cat and mostly all my buddies rid cats as well , and a coulpe of em have that machine along with a couple 98's but still , one of them had his machine set up that way with a brown clutch spring and green secondary and the thing was clutching at 5K,, and the jerk it would give on takeoff was crazzy ,, SURE the sled would take off like crazzy and when it was pinned , the ski's were always off the ground and in no time , his cluth was shattered ,, it gives alot of strain on the cluth ,, take a look and at the botom of your clutch ,, if you see little cracks ,,, keep a eye on it ,,,, don't let them get longer then 2 inches ,, if so ,, i'd change the cluth before she let's go on you.
And if i were you ,, i'd do like my buddy ,, get your cam's, ramps and geraing worked on a bit ,, purple spring in the clutch and 4K will be enough.
And at the same time , it will be way better for the durability of your cluth, plus in the trails , it'll be a hell of a lot more smoother
The two springs in there now are both yellow. I just talked to a parts place and I described the problem, He recommended I order a 4k spring. Now, I apologize for my ignorance, but will I get 1 spring or two with it? Can I keep the yellow spring on the secondary and tone down the clutch one?
You are right, once I get going it is ok, but at take off....I almost fall off! It's great in the fields, but manuvering around trees is a bit of a problem.
see,, just like i said ,,, and the spring you'll need to bring it to 4K is the purple one ,, and yes you can leave your yellow one in there ,wich i think is 110lbs ,, or close to that and no ,, if you you want your machine to clutch lower , or higher , you only need to change ONE spring ,, not 2,, and my buddy's set up for his 600 wich goes like lightning has is 54.6 weights , Primary spring , Puprle , Yellow secondary and 58* helix
