I'm sure he'd like to keep those angles private, hard to sell clutch kits with everyone knowing what to buy on their own.

MSC Item Detail

Try this out it will get you close enough , if you have a chart with the helix specs you'll be able to figure out which one you have.

No offense but i had the kit in my 07 600 cfi and i can't get it to hold rpms when i get over 70 , so i was going to change my sled over to the 08 clutch set-up which has the same stock springs ( blk/green primary red/blk secondary) but use 64 g weights and a 56/42 -.36 helix instead of the 64/42-.36 helix and 62 g weights that the 07 has , i dont think the 62 grams weights are heavy enough to pull down into the team clutch. so if i knew what angles your helix had i could maybe use it with the 64g weights. But i'm sure you can tell me if it is a completly different helix then the helix that you sell in the kit for the 08 and up 600.

And this is why I do not buy Pre-made clutch kits. There is no way this or other kits will work for the same model sleds right across North America. Piece together your own kit, as you have already been doing and you will get what you want for your style of riding!

So, your not holding RPM's and your going to go up in weight?????

Our set up will hold rpm's all day long. I hate to say it, but you have other problems.

We do not use any of the helix's you listed above, so if you want to try on of those it will be different than what we sent you.

yea go up in weight but down in helix angle. The problem with the sleds rpm are up top on the the swallower angle , it will hold rpms all day down low. And this sled has been gone through up and down, 120 psi comp. both cylinders, exhaust valves good, tps good, reflashed, track loose , ski alignment good, no exhaust leaks , dealer has checked numerous times for any codes-none found, i am running out of ideas , so i figured if polaris is using 64 g weights with that helix it must work, i haven't seen any complaints on the 08 and up 600. Actually the EPI clutch kit uses 64g weights. so its worth a shot. i figure $100.00 for the helix and if it doesn't work i can resell it on e-bay or a swap meet for $ 50.00.
But thanks for your input. Cause you are the first one to tell me i have something else wrong with my sled.
