i am looking for some info on this machine that i just bought. can anyone help me?? i need to find some factory specs and some setup tricks to make it all that it can be. some performance info would be nice too.
stock clutch set for a 1993 xlt 580 is gold primary spring,10m bushed weights and the secondary had a 34 degree helix with a red secondary spring, in second hole. gearing is 21 top , 39 bottom
for a good set up clutches put a blue primary spring ,leave weights alone.
put a 42/36 helix in with a blue secondary spring 2nd hole run motor at 8200 works best. this set up is for a stock exaust system.
sled should have a jetting sticker under the hood to tell you about the stock carbs
polaris did make a limited run of 92 xlt's with the 580 engine.it was a late release sled .it looks very similar to the 92 indy 500 as far as color and decals.but it will be a 580 not a 500 some one is screwing with you on that.polaris made some 500 triples in the early 80's which became the 600 and 650.but your sled is without a doubt the 580 triple xlt engine.polaris has made some late intro sleds in the early to mid 90's.they also made an 94 xcr 600,and a 97 xc 700 but they were also like your 92 xlt very limited in build.
trust me it is a 580 xlt triple i have been a polaris nut for a long time .i know my 1980 to current polaris sleds like the back of my hand .if there was any model produced and sold to the public i would know about it.i'm kinda a polaris nut.i was raised around the indy sleds and i've been crazy about them since.i do have some pic's some where but i don't have a scanner so if i get one i'll post some pics
