There should be an adjuster on your secondary, usually there is instructions on the side of the airbox or somewhere that tells you which way to turn it. Its like a disk and there are marking (1-5?) i think.

Are you 100% positive you have the right belt? The deflection adjustment on the side of the secondary won't change the RPM very much. You can tell if it needs adjustment by looking at where the belt rides on the secondary when parked. It should be about 1/16" above the rim of the clutch. The adjustment on the side of the clutch will move the belt to achieve this if necessary.

What is the engagement RPM? I think for the XC's it was around 4300 or so and top end about 7800.
