I posted in the sk-dooi general forum and decided I'd try here... i realize my request is probablly not high-tech but thought the best advice was here..


I have a 2005 600HO MXZ adrenaline w/ 144 picks that I've ridden for about 2 years. I want to shake things up a bit with a better holeshot. I know almost nothing about clutching except what I've read. I know it can involve many different factors rider's weight, trail conditions, suspension setups. I would like some basic knowledge on changing the setup my sled has. I've been looking into springs and if I've been informed correctly this will make my clutch engage at a higher rpm, will this help my holeshot? Any information would be great... I'm trying not lose tons of top end or go broke

A higher spring tension at engagment will increase engagement yes, but it will change a few other things also.

The sled will feel "revvier", meaning your cruising RPM at any given RPM will be higher, some people like this, but it can be rough on MPG.

Also, a better holeshot is only worth it if you can hook it up. If your spinngin bad now, it will only get worse. More aggresive clutching will just slow you down.

Back when I was grass draggin my 800 MXZ I had to LOWER the engagmen to a mear 3100 RPM to get a good 60ft time
