1st, excuse my ignorance
- this is my first sled so I'm new to all this clutching B.S. I've read up the a$$ on clutch adjustment, but need a little coaching on what to do for this specific issue to 'properly' adjust clutch to it's fullest potential w/o purchasing a full kit (tight on the $$$), however I'm thinking of going to a 200/300 spring.

I have about 780 mi. on my stock 05 600 X SDI and seem to think the pull has diminished a little...the engine is fine, though it's running a little rich.

Right now, it's set up like it came from the dealer...what I've noticed:

- minimal wear on the primary (some, not overly pronounced wear where the belt rides on the inner 1-2")
- some belt wear (I have a new belt, but want to sqeeze the most outta this one)
- belt riding flush with outer edge of secondary.

1.) A little belt wear therefore belt not riding as high on the secondary, so what to adjust? secondary is set at 4 (I think?), not sure about the primary...

2.) The RPMs are creaping a little over 8100-8300, and I'd like to get r down to the peak HP range, 78-8000 - I understand I need to adjust the primary(?), each adjustment ~ 200 RPMs to get it down, correct?

Any help or specific direction on what to do here would be great!!! thanks to all in advance

RIDE ON!

Jake

you loosen the 3 bolts on the face of the sencondary and move the slider to the next number. Take it for a quick blast and check the belt. Should be just about on the seam of the belt.

I understand that adjustment, any comments about adjusting the primary, what to look for in relation to power gains (pull)...assuming I keep the engine in the meat HP range?

Will going with a heavier spring help engagement (give a noticable improvement) and increase low-midrange response?
