In Topic: The Little 500SS That Could???

Yea wow I definitely did this the hard way. While I was in there I changed both the seals. Took one evening to yank the motor and another to put it back in so not too terrible. Chassis is

tight for getting the engine in and out though. I can only imagine how much worse a gen 4 is.

Another update, popped the old seal out no problem. the bearing was pretty dry. I put some isoflex in there and wrecked the new seal trying to tap it in. Went to the dealer to get another and talked to their lead tech that told me you have to split the case to set the seal in correctly or the little ridge will get ripped off every time. Well "My account is about to be banned". So I now have the bottom end tore apart on my bench and am going to replace the seals on both sides. definitely not a job I was expecting to have to do.

Took the sled for a ride today. I dropped the pin weight by aprox 2 grams and set the clicker to 4. Pulled 7900rpm again, I think I saw 85-90mph on the speedo(Not sure if related info but there it is) I was able to hop between the 2 sleds and the stock 600 sport feels snappy compared to the 500ss. I saw when I pulled the primary the crank seal looked a little sketchy from a blown belt getting wrapped around it from the year before. Im gonna pick up a new seal and some isoflex before I mess with it too much more. Should I be dropping more pin weight than 2 grams which was the next lightest combination I could make?

Dropped the pin weight. Set the clickers back to 4. Taking it out on the trail tomorrow. Any tips for torqueing down the clutch bolt without the fancy wrench? lol. Ive just been wedging a 2x4 in there to hold it.

I went through the clutches and replaced all the wear items. I think I will turn my clickers up to 6 and see what that does for rpm. Otherwise Ill pull out some pin weight.
