WTF:good ZRT6 clutch/gear setup

Post by Pro5 » Tue, 08 Dec 1998 04:00:00


I own a bone stock 96 ZRT600 and I'm looking to beef it up before snow flys.
Do Black magic kits really work well?  Looking for improved performance and I
mostly trail ride average 60mph or so.

Thanks

I run a 57-50 helix,stock springs in both primary and secondary. 54 gram
weights(stock).When the sled was new I had a shim taken out from behind
the spider. That clutch cracked like many 96 cluches did. Check where
the clutch face meets the shaft for cracks. I installed a 98 cat clutch
and didn't touch the shims. It runs pretty strong. You need to get the
engagement up to 4500-5000 to take care of dead spot. I run the stock
gears also(23/40)Good luck

Hi Wayne,
  Try getting in touch with Ken Jaecks with the tail twister clutch kit,
or give D&D a shout. I`m sure both places will give you some good
advice.
 Always remember, if you haven`t got your clutching right, then don`t
waste any more money on anything else until it is right.
  Hope this helps.

Hey Wayne,
 I`ll try to send you some info if I saved it, it`ll be from Ken Jaecks
with the Tail Twister kits.

This, IMHO, sounds like pretty good advice for very low altitude.

For above 6000 feet, don't be afraid to run a 53 helix or smaller, and
don't be afraid to drop a couple of grams on the weights.....
