Snow is loose now so I think I will keep the settings for now. Sled does pull hard out of the hole when I did find hard pack. Haven't found an area long enough to get top end.

Sled is fun to ride.
XS828 will drop your RPM's 200-300 and you will need to start all over with your clutching. Much softer belt.

Thanks Greg, I did try 2-2-1 and was still overrevving. At 3-2-1 sled doesn't overrev it will creep up to 8200.

As you can tell I'm not a clutch tuner guy so I appreciate everyone's input.

Thanks for the info.

I will stay with the Cat for now heading out Wednesday with a group so I don't want to be messing with the clutches on a trip.

The cat belts will always send you looking because they are temp sensitive, put the XS belt in there and set to come out at 7900 and let run out the back at 8150. it will stay the same every pass.

Just a couple things here of note. The J14-74 cat weights actually weigh at about 75 grams. They are fairly heavy biased to tip weight when you look at them compared to the Dalton's which are much more heel heavy prior to adding set screws. Part number for spring I am using is 0646-474

Fun, you are doing better than you think. your bang on with the weight. can you putanother weight in heal? if not leave it there... you should hammer out og hole to 7900 and creep to 8150...8200 out the back inLONG run is good cusz then your running on rpm. but wait till you get an xs belt.

Thanks for the information.

I ran 3-2-2 ran great on hard pack still haven't had a hard pack area long enough to hold open to top sled out, have hit 94 mph with this setup. Out of the hole hits 7800,7900 then creeps up to 8000 and then gradually gets to 8100 with Cat belt.

Raced a new 850 Ski Doo on semi hard pack (Cat 137 no studs, Doo 129 Ice Ripper) both sleds leaving exactly at the same time our skis where within 3" of each other and both where at the same height as far as ski lift we where dead even up to 80 MPH then the Doo barely started to pull away, then we ran out of lake (small lake). I know once he started pulling away there was no way I was going to catch him.

I was happy with the 155hp Cat keeping up with the 850 Doo.
