I want to say I either have a 52-34 or a 52-32 Helix laying around I'd have to check to be sure what it is.

I have either an R8 or an R11 sitting at home, can't remember the angle though.

Go dig up my clutch components xls and see what angles those are. if I have the right helix and you buy my skis i'll throw in the helix for free....

the holes are for spring anchor, usually equal to 200 rpm +/- change.

tighter spring = more resistance which should be less rpm if I can remember right

I can never figure out which hole is tighter? Ahemm... I mean.... I think the helix has four or five holes, and there are numbers stamped on it. Is the lower number for lower rpm, or is it the opposite.

Rubi you have to think about it in a rotational sense, the buttons start at the top of the ramps and work down them. So if you want tighter you put it toward the direction of the top of the ramps for tighter.

I have trouble visualizing how that clutch works. I have to lift up the sled and spin the clutch to look at the track to see which way it turns. Once I have it off, I probably have no idea which way it turns, but I'll remember the top of the ramps make it tighter.

Gerbil and I even had the secondary from his MXZ assembled wrong for quite awhile. He never noticed though since it was only a low-performance Ski Doo.

Ah Shit I think I'm thinking about it wrong, because of the way the springs are shaped.

it's what i do

i don't understand why they want you to run a 32 helix vs the 34. i would think a 50/34 or 40-50/34 would be more what your looking for

the people at slp are idiots, more spring in the primary or secondary is more rpm, more helix angle or more wieght equal less rpm.

32 degrees is to small for your sled, unless you are going high altitude? for sea level riding i would go with stock helix, lots of weight and a stiffer secondary spring, or stock wieghts bigger helix and stiffer secondary spring. if you are after the big helix department you would want a 36-38 degree finish angle. 32 degrees is what you would run on a sled trying to get to 9000+ rpm.
