Default 2009 crossfire r 1000 Clutching

Going to be putting an SLP Y-Pipe on my sled along with a power commander 5. (along with an 1.25 Ripsaw II).
I need clutching recommendations (ie: just heavier weights,or spring change, helix change, etc).

I ride groomed trails, (central NY),at about 500-1000 ft elevation and I weigh about 235 in my birthday suit.

thanks

What he said. It's a Well proven setup. D+D also has a great kit. Both are markedly better than stock.

A couple reputable performance shops are telling me to just add weight to the primary.
Do you think a should do more to the clutch (ie: helix, spring,etc).
Sled will have a SLP Y-Pipe and power commander.

Adding weight, the correct weight (design,/profile) will indeed do a lot for you. Spending time with adjustable weights and adjusting a torsional helix to fit your hp, traction, rider weight and style......will do a lot more.

If I go the route you're suggesting, (torsional conversion, helix, spring(s), adjustable weights), is there a baseline for the weights needed, spring rates, etc..

Either shop will have a base kit, with springs, helix and starting weight recommendations. Then you adjust the weights and the rear spring tension to best fit you and your sled. Then, If you near the end range of adjustement, you just buy maybe one additional spring and your back into the sweet spot.

Will there be any "Reverse" issues with the torsional helix ?
