Help!!

How do I adjust the engagement of the primary clutch lower?  Do I have to
change the spring?  It engages at about 6000 rpm now and I want it lower.  
Thanks for any help.      Ed

Ed, yes you have to change the spring.  If it is engaging at 6000 rpm,
it is not the stock spring right now.  Take it to a dealer, (or a
performance shop if one is near you), to have it checked out, and they
will advise you of a better setup.  Rob

The proper spring for your clutsh is the polaris almond spring.  it is a
square wire spring.  This should bring your engagement down into the low
5's, and that's right where this motor likes to start. You should also have
stock weights in there.  10al or 10a weights are the ones you need. 10al's
give you a higher shift rpm than the 10a's, but that's the only difference.

I have a '95 XCR600 and it has a blue spring in the clutch.  It
engages at 5000 and the dealer said that blue is the correct spring
for stock.

Ed,

I own one of those beasts and it has a flat spot at about 5400 RPM.  So,
if you get it to engage in that general area you can drive through the
flat spot before it becomes a problem.

The 10a weights and Black Hot Seat or Almond Polaris primary spring work
very well.

I swapped the stock 21T top gear for a 19T and it helped the cruise
mode.  It still shifts out at 8400 rpm to 8600 rpm.

Make sure the carbs are synchronized I like to set the idle for about
1800 rpm to 2000 rpm but, that's just a personal preference.

Phil

A '95 XCR600 and a "96 XCR600 SP are two different animals. The "SP" is
the evolved, case reed tripple/tripple. Standard XCR is standard hood,
monoblock tripple/single.
