Default Parts at Haydays

Gentlemen, I am trying to plan out my funds here and this is what I am looking to improve on the Storm. This is what I want to accomplish:

1. Faster out of the hole without losing my top end (I beat my uncles nytro but my dads 700 Iq may put the hurt on)

2. Stiffer rear springs for my weight...I bottom out on bumpy trails.
3. Well those are my only complaints.

I am thinking about getting the clutch kit from Madcow or gearing...but I lose my top end and am not completely sure of how it works. Advice please and thanks guys.

Clutching shouldnt lose your top end, if anything it will increase it. I could be wrong tho.. Not gearing could lose some top end if you gear it down for a better hole shot for sure, unless your willing to lose a little top end i dont think your going to get much better hole shot other than some clutching.

Get your springs first off, do you really want used ones tho? I dont think used is the way to go on springs.

Then you should clutch it, possibly gear it, lets see what madcow has to say about that tho.

PM madcow and have him explain the clutching and gearing to you and what it does. Or just ask him at Haydays. The will be the best thing you can do for it.

Like I told you b4 Harry, get the Euro 2-up springs if they have them at Hay Days, I put them on my '99 SKS700, and they keep my A$$ from touching the studs now!! As for clutching, you got to remember onething, that damn Storm and all the metal inside the motor area weighs a ton, sell the damn thing and hike your skirt up Sally, buy yourself a real machine, POLARIS TWIN!!

Depends on the race, across ice...your done, just a short little 660, I am done. I know my sleds limits, and beating MX's and Olafs out of the hole and on the short run wont happen.

All this talk but no action. Like P-800RMK said, put up or shut up.

I certainly will, but not for pinks...I dont have the money to replace the storm. Also you do have a much longer track though. What kind of HP does that kitty kat put out.

I think it is around 150hp. So you're backing down to a twin 800?

Than what is the sense of Olaf racing you? He chances crashing, blood clot in the brain (from the G force of the takeoff), damage to the sled motor..... doesn't seem like there is much incentive to race. So one of you win, big deal, chalk it up to a bad day for the loser, but for pinks you better be on your game or no ride.

I have another sled.... something more along the lines of what Harry has.
