BTW, you'll usually lose some top end with a longer track due to rotating mass weight.
Yeah, its worse wasting money than porting the cases. I'd definitely balance both clutch's best as possible. Get the aux. rear cooler, your motor will thank you.

Imo, its very hard to beat the old button secondary when it comes to a combined bunch of drag races and top end. I've gotten to really like the tied roller, but its more difficult to dial in. A buddy has been experimenting with one for a few years on his 04 prox 800 thats stretched to a 136. For a stock 800 thats stretched it hauls the mail pretty well. You try to pry any setup info on that tied secondary he runs, you have a better chance seeing a sasquatch.

ive never had em myself, but for the old button clutch they say a hotseat 36 or 34 x is the ticket if you can find one.

finding the 50-34 x hotseat is just as likely as finding a sasquatch too though.

And on the big end it should go faster due to a longer track. Like a bigger tire. Would it be better to get a team secondary too? That's just my thought. Any opinions would be great.
What are your plans for this sled? Drag racing? General trail? This would have a big influence on how I would set it up.

Guys here ran the old polaris R49 for trails and the hsp 36x when doing drags.

I'm mainly going for the need of speed. I wanna race some guys around here in the flat lands. But I want to feel like I got a mean machine. One that can run with the big dogs. I just wondered if I'd make a reasonable gain going to a 144. I know a guy who has one new cheap. But if not no big deal. After all the info I see it would slow me down if not done perfectly. But to have handling for trails it might be nice to have .

I guess best question to ask then is , if you did want to race other sleds, what kinda distance are you talking?

if 660 to 1000 ft id say its a big advantage in the extra track , if running a full 1/4 mile or longer, a hindrance.

I wouldn't stretch it to a 144 for general trail riding unless you plan a lot of off trail.

yeah if handling is something you want to improve more then acceleration, youd be much better off with a decent aftermarket skis like c and a's.

Not sold on c&a skis, a buddy ran them, can't recall what model he had, i think he said they were razors or something, but said the steering was very heavy and took too much effort after a long trail day, wished for something else. He put some slp slt skis on his 136 stretch prox...says its the best improvement you can do for a sled thats been stretched to 136. I took his advice for my 121'' edge and ordered a bunch of the skis components .....we'll see next season what difference they make compared to the stock skis which i was perfectly happy with till one cracked pretty good.
