Thanks for the tech tip trailblazer, ever hear of rotating mass, the next time your taking a dump read up on it, 8 to 10 ounces, not, ever lift a starter ring, took it off and gained quicker rpms.......... dont forget to wipe!!!If you're removing your estart, why don't you leave the ring gear on there.
On some models, Skidoo is using the ring gear to act as a harmonic balancer to counteract some of the vibrations.
The 8 - 10 ounces you'll loose compare to you having a good dump.
I'd leave it there.
As far as answering your question, I would think not.
That weight is carried on the arms not the whole clutch so removing the ring gear shouldn't affect engagement RPM.
