My zr 600 has the stock clutching in it. straight 48 helix, its fine maybe overshifts a bit but I found a 55/53 helix and was wondering if anyone has tried this. Ill probly throw it in anyway, but cant ride so I thought id ask anyway. thanks

55/53 is a good all around helix. do yourself a favor and put in a cat red/white spring when you change the helix. a little stiffer spring for better backshift, sled will seem snappier in the trails. it will also help belt pinch with the steeper helix angles.

Yeah, and if you are changing the helix and secondary spring you might as well throw in the Cat orange-white primary and some Poo 10-52 weights! Run it at 8400 rpm.[/b]
heavier weights do make the sled pull harder, but i don't know if you'll pull 8400rpm with 52g and 55-53 helix. most kits that use weights this heavy either have helix with much shallower finish angle (d&d) or a primary spring with finish force higher than that of cats orange/white (goodwin) to keep the rpms up.
if you're going to tinker with the primary go with the o/w spring but you may need weights slightly lighter than 52g to get peak rpms right.

If your really feeling like putting some time into your set up try getting maybe a set of 52 or 53g weights and custom grind and weigh them until you get the sled running tip top perfect![/b]

:div20: was going to say the same thing,, bit more playing around but worth it,,,R2R
