I am just curious about a small issue that I am having with my '95 Storm.

The engine seems to be running quite well. The plugs seem to be a very good color it starts on the 2nd pull every time and seems to have lots of power.

It does seem to have a bit of a flat spot between 5000 and about 5800 rpm.  The problem is that this is the rpm the engine is at during normal trail riding. As soon as the machine hits 6000 rpm and gets on the pipe it runs great unfortunately 6000 rpm is a little too fast for most of the trails in my area.

The Clutch currently engages at about 4000 rpm and is fine until it hits 5000 then it falls flat until about 6000

Would it be possible to clutch the machine so the clutch engages at a higher rpm, or to go with a shorter gear and raise the operating rpm so the engine is on the pipe at lower speeds?

Thanks for the help!

I think your idea of slightly lower gearing was a good one.

Id say go down 1 or 2 teeth on the top gear, but watch the tach on the lakes, you dont want to take a 95 storm past 8200 for too long.
