Default 2020 Clutching Question Adjustable Weights

I have a set of Magna Force with 3 holes for magnet adjustments.

Stock 2020 CTEC ZR 800 with 400 miles, I see 8350 midrange to top-end in 1000 feet. I only trail ride and not very clutch savvy.

I started at (heel 2-1-0 tip) so far and I dropped to 8200 rpms so do I keep adding heel and middle or should I be putting the weight on the tip.

Thanks in advance.

2-2-1 should get you real close to 8000......more toe = less back shift. If the back shift gets lazy but RPM’s are right go 3-1-1 but 3-2-0 would be most trail friendly.

With these weights you can really tune your shift as well as influence your back shift without having to deal with $100 helix’s.

regarding adjustable weights for the 2018+, I'm in the market for some adjustable weights too. Mostly need for elevation changes. Majority i ride around 1500ft, but do usually one mountain trip each year (7500 to 10k feet).

Let me know how you like the magnaforce. I'm trying to find more info on ssi, MDS, daltons, cutler, etc.

I found it was easier to just put In a cat purple primary spring and leave the stock weights

Where are you revving at now Rod? Makes sense that your spring works better as the finishing rate is 240 lbs vs the 265 its rate of the stock spring.

It was around. 8200-8250 now itís 7950-8000.

The cat purple would be closer to a 230 finish in the team primary due to the different installed heights

The spring change improved its 1/4 ET and MPH on my timer consistently and the engine sounds a lot happier

Rod how many miles do you have on your sled?

Hopefully your spring is the answer.

I wish I would have known that before I ordered the adjustable cam arms. With a spring there is no adjusting.

If do not go adjustable weight route I found primary spring 85/205 and J14-74 weights work good to cure over rev on Ctec's
