not exactly. there are optimum combinations to keep the RPMs in a specific area based on how much power is available and how much resistance there is from the drive train. you COULD theoretically make infinite combinations but it wouldn't function very well.Originally posted by Sleds-650
[br]I'm not a Math-ma-physicist, but correct me if I'm wrong. I believe there are infinite combinations of clutch weights/springs/helix/rollers...???
Nicely said!!! Couldnt of done it better myself!Originally posted by Customized89Trail
[br]it will make your sled accelerate faster. probably higher engagement. more aggressive helix angle and faster upshift and backshift.
upshift means how fast the ratio of the two clutches is changing as you accelerate. if you notice when you're on your sled, you pin it and the RPMs pretty much stay in one spot (high). the clutches are doing all the work shifting while keeping the motor in the peak power RPM range.
backshift is when you let off the throttle the clutches snap back to a better ratio for acceleration again, which is desirable for example when you slow down in a tight corner and then want to accelerate hard out of it.
this is all done by adjusting weights, springs and helix. stock clutch setups are made from the factory to be comfortable and somewhat tame. aftermarket companies put a lot of effort into keeping the motor in the peak RPM range all the time as opposed to having tame acceleration which makes the average rider more comfortable.
Yes but u must have some kind of traction like studs or 1.25 track. I found out that my sled was cluthed right just did not have the traction then this summer i bought a 1.25 ripsaw from erick and now i really found out what my sled's got.Originally posted by powder_special_900
[br]clutch kits allow you to put the power to the track more efficently or quicker. Helps u play with with the clutch will engage, at a higher or lower RPM
