    07 IQ 600 Clutch Alingment and Low RPMS
    Posted by ProXJC on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 9:05 PM

    Ever since I bought this sled I just can't get it to rev 7600-7900. I have repaced the primary, tryed EPI maroon, SLP blue/pink, another stock black/green, 64's back to 62's balanced,  delrin washer in the secondary,  checked for leaking exhaust valves, good compression in each cylinder, when I checked for broken motor mounts the engine moved slighty nothing more than normal.   I picked up a clutch alignment tool from SLP,  it shows a 3/16 gap in the back and 1/8 in the front.  Instuctions show it is supposed to be tight in the front and .040 in the back.  So I shimmed until the front touched, back was still around 1/8.  Rode a mile with a new belt, heavy accelaceration, the belt frayed on the inside, rpms never changed.  Are these SLP alignment tools accurate or what? Please help If I can't get this thing to rev its gone!

    What kind of belt do you run and what is your belt deflection   I ran into this myself on my 06 600 HO    Make sure you have  a good 1 1/4 inch belt deflection and you center to center is at 11.5 if that is all good and RPM still is all over the map, get a polaris 3211122 belt and the sled will feel like a diff sled. I have @900 miles on this year and the sled has not gone below 8000 rpm all year, if the water temp is below 130 degs the engine peeks at 8300 when you nail it !!! I had the same problem as you did till I changed out belts. PS i did not see if you had CFI or carb but if it is carb run 390-400 mains depending on temp 400s good till -20 degs, also with this belt little to no belt dust

    I have a 2007 Dragon 700. Checked alignment with both the SLP offset tool and the GENUINE POLARIS gold plated $60.00 tool (with approx .075"angle offset built in to compensate for engine torque movement) IT WAS SO FAR OFF!!

    I had a .180 larger gap at the rear of the secondary compared to the front.  !!!!!!

    I removed the engine and had to slot the two (2) engine bracket holes approx .375" to get the alignment perfect.

    I know that sounds like a lot of work, but I checked with SLP and they said they run into that from time to time on all brands of sleds

    With the lightweight secondaryTSS-04 that is on our sleds, SLP recommends .100" at the front and I believe 120" to 140" at the rear. (100" to 120" at the rear if you're using the SLP push arm) Their offset tool is actually made for a TEAM non-lightweight secondary TSS-98 which is slightly wider than the TEAM  TSS-04 LIGHTWEIGHT

    No I wasn't blowing belts, I just decided to check it.  To be honest with ya I'm now thinking I picked up a couple bad belts from the dealer.  This one frayed, and a nother spit down the center on my 800.  Regardless when I use the SLP tool, it shows the clutch is well off alingment.

    you have to register to open up and see the pics, it's no big deal.

    I tried to upload pics on this site and there doesn't seem to be a way to do it.

    If there is, please let me know and I'd be glad to post the pics here.

    You should be running around 8,200 revs on the IQ600s.  Were you using 1080 belt with those heavy weights? Try 1122 as it is a harder compound and it will bring your revs up about 200 more. Im not sure the SLP blue/pink is, but put the stock spring back in and retest. Clean the VES to make sure they arent sticking. And two .. when you ride on a new belt - do not ride it heavy accelleration until you give the belt a chance to break-in at least 50miles. WL
