Default Gearing/traction/clutching options 04 pro x2 600

Looking for some gearing options to follow my clutching on my pro x2 600 along with how many studs I should add to my track. Clutching is as follows: 150/310 venom blue primary spring with 10-60 weights, stock 58-42.36 secondary helix with red/blue secondary spring. Wondering if I should try for 22/40 gearing as I’ve seen I here a lot of people liked the gearing set up. Also have a 1 1/2” track, looking to see how many studs I should put in and the size of stud to use. The sled seems to pull decent but I’m wondering if gearing may help more especially with studs being added to the track. I’m 205lbs in my gear. Thanks in advanced guys!

22/40 sprockets works well in most conditions for really aggressive riding. Depending on the stud pattern, at least 120 in the middle belt. 144 is as much as i'd go. This works well with the rest of those components you have, other than running a team tied clutch

if you seldom hold your sled open any further then 1000 ft, my xc 6 with the 1 1/4 really liked 21/41.it pulled harder then the 22-40 and seemed to top out close to the same on 1000.

my xc liked the 62s better then 60s.your spring is a solid choice, i liked 165/310, but some say its too much engagement.

I found 62 weights with the team blue 150/310 spring worked well in 1000' also using the stock tss-98 driven and 23/40 gearing on the xc, but if you ran over 1/2 mile the rpm would drop between 7700-7800. Speedo showed a bit over 105 mph. We were running on a large snow packed bay at lac st. jean quebec. Must of been at least -10 F that evening.
Imo, 60 weights work better when on trails.

21/42 in my rmk.its NR according to the polaris chart, but it sure made that 144 into a hauler on 1000.If the studs can hook and you want a short blast acceleration, that gearing abesolutely kicks ass.its a tight squeeze to get on though.

I liked it so much im gearing my switchback 6 i just picked up the same. its got 22/40 stock, my rmk was basically the same sled so i cant see why it wont rock in this thing.(21/42)

Too slow, I’m probably looking at a different track, I noticed the other day I have a few lugs torn. Maybe going with the 1.25” kimpex shotgun track. That may help with the weight compared to the 1.50” I have on the sled now? I tried 23/40 gear and wasn’t really that impressed I guess. So I figured I’d try the 22/40 gear for that extra snap and what not. My clutching seems to be about where it needs to be I feel and what most others run and like. Is there anything else you’d recommend? Thanks.

As for kimpex products, i'm not impressed...lets just leave it at that. We ran 1.25'' predator camoplast tracks in the past on older 600 xc's, their a good bang for the buck. 120-144 studs and good to go. A 23/40 was perfect when riding up in quebec...22/40 works much better for the tight trails here in ma. Only improvement i though was bigger than anything i did in the past was going to a team tied clutch. The acceleration out of the hole and off slow corners is amazing compared to the tss-98 team roller. Biggest issue was dialing it in...some of the clutching specs. for the tied were listed for another planet. Wear on the tied clutch appears better than the stock team roller.

That ratio is more for the drag racer, its harder on parts. I use run that on my old 440's that were modded. After 900 mile aggressive trail ride, my clutches were worn out, and the motor needed pistons and rings.
