I think they were in the lower 60 range, the ones in the high 60's had 36mm carbs and a few other small changes.

Buddy of mine had a 93 couger, it would win it's class all the time, run it in the 500 class and it would beat most, won it a couple of times, they run very well for a 440.

Funny you mentioned that, the guy here that worked at the local CAT dealer had a 94 prowler, he never beat the cougar, drove him nuts, we did beat a few 580's also in the 750ft run and one ZR440(another dealer sled),cougar was completly stock,except clutching and gearing.

No I haven't updated. I know it goes pretty good for a 440. I bought it for $ 1000
Canadaian, The engine is mint, very clean, starts great, new track, boggies, rear gas shock, sliders, carbides, new belt and plugs,and thumb warmer. I changed the chain oil, which it didn't need it, it was clean, but I did it anyways, just for piece of mind. I just wanted to know if there was anything I could do to the clutch to give it a little more. I had it up tp 95 MPH at the end of last winter on a OPP raidar, on a raidar run track. Like I said it runs great.

ok...for the clutch, get a 56/50 helix...roller cover, yellow green spring up front, yellow in the back. i have both springs if your interested. the weights are fine, just take them and grind them on the lower part where they are attaching to the pin, Just a little until they all weigh the same. you need a digital scale....these little things make a big difference. if you find a pipe for it, you are already clutched spot on because the pipes for this motor dont change peak RPM just increase hp through out the curve. gearing im still working on. I need to know stock gearing to know what to put in it....I can't remember now what was in it.

8100rpm is right for the sleds with 36mm carbs, not sure if it was the same for the older ones.
