Yes. Have any of you experimented with springs to bring these CTEC 800's to life. The stock clutching doesn't load the engine, it's smooth but it's less than motivated. Also seems to hit a wall at 100 mph. I have some ideas but I wanted to hear what your thoughts are....

It’s that super steep starting angle on the helix. Notice cat went to a shallower one in 2020 and a stiffer spring.

Cat stock clutching is pretty blah and has been for awhile imo. I put the SSI overdrive kit in with adjustable weights and woke it right up.

This last weekend i was noticing some inconsistent performance with mine. When hitting it from a dead stop or up 40 mph it will rev to the 8kish area and hold it. When cruising around 60 and hitting it it will only rev to 7700 and not climb. This was in 8-10" fresh snow. Riot with 1.6 and studs. Im not sure which avenue i will go down yet to correct this.

This is exactly what I am talking about in the 2020 clutching thread earlier today in this Forum.

Weights and better belts. Softer primary helped another member. I feel a primary with at least a 290 rate at 1.4 is needed or it will increase laziness feel.

Spring rates are different by vendor.

for the longer track and deeper lugs, you need to hold a lower gear longer.... think of it like a CAR transmission, if you mash the throttle from a dead stop, the engine will rev almost to red line before it shifts (or where ever its programed to shift at WOT) if your light on throttle... it will shift up to a high gear and then cruise in the higher gear,... then when you mash throttle again it usually will down shift and take off....soo since a CVT does not dwn shift like a standard or auto transmission when you hit the throttle.... the key thing is to have it hold the lower gear longer.... how is this done you ask??? shallower angel helix or stiffer rate spring in secondary. this will keep your revs up closer to your torque peek allowing it to spool quicker and back shift when off the throttle and back on. this will take out the lazy feeling. you will more than likely have to add a gram or two to compensate for over rev on the stab of throttle from start thou.
