That's a good mod, easy to make own kit per say. Remove 3/16" worth of shims from behind secondary and add a spacer to the end of the jackshaft (some guy's will just stack washers as a spacer), install with longer bolt and be sure to clean and lube the spines on the shaft as well as clutch with anti-seize lubricant periodically.  Pretty simple really.

Lower belt temps, no need for getting the secondary alignment right as it does it on it's own. Great mod for sure.


If you have back pain after spending the night at the girl friends .....your doing something right. No pain no gain youngblood.

How thick would you want the spacer?

Depends on which clutch you have, stock clutch I was at .150" and with the Tied, none needed.

So the clean but well greased spline is the key to keep the Secondary from binding in the wrong place and out of alignment?
 
One more question for ya. Hypothetically speaking if you had bought a new 2017 800RE,  would you also have ordering or used a floating secondary either from BRP or the aftermarket?

Yes, clean periodically and lube with C5. And yes old or new sled needs a floating secondary IMO.

Thanks! The amount of time I have spent on aligning the X has grown old over the years. Trying to simplify my clutch tuning.

I am with you on that one, although I have no idea who Duck is or what you are talking about. But I can remove and disassemble a Secondary faster than I can get a beer! lol
