my buddy has a mxz800 teamx and i tought he told me that his stays at 8000.but even if it drops when it shifts shouldn it go back up to 8000 and not 7500MXZ_nut said:thats what happens when it upshifts............if it just stayed at 8000, thats all the faster you could go
been riding on hard pack all day and never seen more than 7500.even on long straight roads and keeping full throtle for miles at a time.the reason i'm asking is because my buddy with his completly stock teamx mxz800 beats me every time at drag racing and the other day i was runing full throtle on a straight road and he passed me like i was stop.and i had mine serviced the other day and the guy told me that the previous owner had put a clutch kit.MXZ_nut said:not necessarily(sp), depending on what kind of snow your riding on will change that, for instance hard pack vs powder
could a cam that is too agressive in the secondary clutch cause thatmudweiser said:I was playing with the clutching on my 01 700 MXZ. Stock off the loine it would hit 8,000 and stay there. I lowered the secondary preload and it would hit 8,000 then drop to 7,600 and slowly climb towards 8,000 again. Hole shot was ok but accelaration was slow. It also did not backshift as fast out of the corners. I brought the preload above 17lbs and it slowly got better. Once set up the way it should be it would hit peg 8,000 and stay there. Acceleration improved a lot and top end was back.
You should be back up at 8,000 or what ever the top rpm should be at. My unproffesional opinion would be either your secondary spring took a set. Or you need to replace your belt and or do a clutch alignment. It sounds to me like its shifting to fast. But, thats just my .02!
