I guess I never looked into it to deep, what are the differeces between these 2 clutches?

What machines do typically see them on? I know my 600 has a P-90

thanks :celebrating:

it does?????? :augen41: p-90 clutches are smaller diameter/narrower belt clutches for atv's and smaller 340 fan cooled engined sleds such as the indy lites, they are not exactly a high h.p. capable unit, they work very well in the atv's and sleds for which they were intended.

EDIT: the secondaries are smaller as well, they have far less torque carrying capabilities than a p-85 secondary due to the much smaller outer bushing on the moveable sheave along with it's close placement(distance wise)to the other bushing(inner most)on the same sheave

My brother had a 98 xc 600 and it had a p85.

Did you buy your sled new? Are you sure it's a p90?

I have a p85 on my 98 indy5.

BTW I like what you did with the color on that sled. I never liked that sled in white.

Kirt, c-note is right. there was a very short time in the later mid 90's Poo put the P-90 clutch on the 440 Sport and a years or so 488, but they went back to P-85.

also the smaller lighter P-90 would let the 340 spin up quicker, the P-90 primary use's all the same weights and springs, tower buttons, and can also be adjusted with spyder shims for belt width.

Yup, had a 97 440 sport with a P-90. Just smaller, cheaper, lighter weight.
