    polaris fusion 600
    Posted by snowdevil on Thursday, December 13, 2007 4:29 PM

    I have 2 fusion 600's and i was reading about all the carb set up's.I was wondering why the polaris shift is jetted totally different. is this a good set up to use on my fusions the biggest problem i have is at an idle they load up with gas fast and the fule milage sucks

    0.9 air jet, with 400 main jet and # 55 pilot and you'll solve your idling problem.

    For the shift, I can tell you that the carb set-up is simply perfect.  It took 2 years for polaris to set-up the 600 HO carubrator perfectly, but the shift is perfect.

    I see the shifts not only got better with the mains going to 400 from 420 but they have changed the pilots to a 45 from 50 My question is why do you like the 60 pilots I have had 2500 safe miles running 390s and 45s under 2000 feet. I just got a maroon spring and some 64 weights and am going to try your recomendation on that one. I have been running the 115 belt and with 62s in I turn 8300 I like your feed back Thankyou

    ok thank willie i was hoping it was going to be you who answered so what if i went totally with the shift set up and is that good for wot runs for more than a mile and why do you recommend the 60 pilot also i have the epi cluth kit with the maroon spring and the slp air box kit thanks

    55 pilot jet... I did a mistake. 

    Because the sled is lean at low throttle with this set-up and 50 pilot.

    The shift don't have the same needle jet...  If you use the shift set-up, use everything... not just the high speed and pilot jet. 

    For the shift set-up, I did 1/2 mile WOT without any problem and the spark plug color was perfect.  The temp was -12C... I don't know if it will be the same at -30C... we will see that soon.

    ok so last question what about the timing  should i leave it a 26 degrees and your set up or can i go 28 degrees and your set up or the shift's set up i ride all trails and backwoods stuff  in michigan so i am 0 to 2000 feet and i am looking up the part numbers for the shift carb set up and the needle jet part numbers are the same for the shift and fusion are the clips in the same spot sorry for all the questions but i just want the best set up possible thanks again wille

    ok so i got my sled out and it ran great with the shift set up for the carbs but the epi clutch kit i have now the sled will not turn over 7900 rpm sucks i am going to order the slp pipe and try that does any one have this pipe and if so how well does it work

    Best I've found for my shift:  Carb set-up is perfect!!!

    10-64 with EPI maroon

    bikeman performance mod  pipe.

    The mid range is incredible...  with a 08 600 CFI and a 02 XC 700 clutch with a custom head, at 40 mph when we open the throttle, I took 3-4 sled lenght as soon as I hit the throttle.  Top speed was a little bit better with the shift compare to the Xc 700 and was the same as the CFI 600.

     The "Valve, Pistons" for the Shift run around ~$58 each, and the "Jet, Air, Pilots" are ~$7 each....$130 total for just those.

     I am considering setting up my fusion exactly like the shift...

    Bikemen pipe mod is about 200 bucks plus the shipping. They have a 3-4 day turnaround time..  Horsepower gain on the bikemen mod I believe is 6 -8 hp per the dynotech dyno. The best thing about it is it looks stock uses the same muffler cops cannot tell u have a mod one so no ticket.  Down side to this is the weight of the pipe and the muffller compared to what you7 would lose with the SLP set up. Rather not get the ticket esp in Canada

    Before you go through the expense and hassle of that, try this.

    420 mains

    #20 pilot jets

    #3 needle position

    fuel screws 2 turns out

    plug the pilot air jets with epoxy or solder.

     

    You won't be disappointed. You'll see 12-14mpg, decreased idle hang, and no loading up. You will find that it takes 4-5 pulls rather 2-3 to start a cold motor. But after choking for 5 seconds you can walk away and she'll idle like a fuelie.

    im not sure but soldering or epoxying on the carbs dosnt sound like something an average joe backyard mechanic should be doing. besides that is kinda permanent and if it doesnt work right or if you dont like the results, its near imposible to go back from that kind of mod. besides i dont know bout you guys but i like my sled to start off 1-2 pulls especially when cold cause thats when its the hardest to pull.

    my suggestion if you want better gas milage  is just drop the main to a 400, it will start easier and get better gas milage.

    but a smart man would go with what willie suggests.

     Of course a smart man would know that the pilot air jets are not a permanant piece of the carb which in turn makes the mod easily reversible. But hey, if you guys want to pass on the #1 best carb calibration for mikuni equipped smallblocks that's your decision. No wonder why this web site is dying. Post an idea and get shot down. Sheesh.

    I think plugging the air jets is a great idea, cause no matter what I try w/ the air jet I can,t get my fusion(06) to leave the line hard. I am going to try a set of tm 40 w/ no air jet.

      Thanks for the imfo AFG

    Yes, I'm 10 years behind the times, but I have a 600 fusion and a simple question, the recommendations for the carbs is all I need to do to them? the 400, #55 and .9 air jet?
