Speedwerx sells a spider removal tool, primary clutch holding fixture, and a primary clutch holder. Are these needed to swap out the spring & weights in the primary?
Ya. It is a stout spring for sure but I love the way it works even with my stock primary. It smoothed out the machine a bunch and of course, bumped the rpm's up to the 9200 - 9400 range when I stand on it. I've had my Tracker hit 9800 before. Makes me wonder if they have a different rev limiter setting.Since I had everything torn apart due to the reverse failure, I decided to play with the clutch. I put the light Speedwerx spring in the primary with the 55-71 adjustable weights (heel full of weights) & the heavy Venom spring in the secondary. That 200-280 Venom spring is no joke. I needed to use a hydraulic press to get the cover down so I could bolt it back together. Does that sound right?
Primary: Speedwerx 80-190
Secondary: Venom 200-280
Speedwerx spring is black with a blue stripe & is seated correctly. When I had the primary apart, I had to manually slide the sheaves together to get access to the cams. Is this what you mean by sticky primary? When there's no spring tension, should the spider/sheave just freely/easily fall down towards the other sheave due to gravity? Mine did not do that.What color is the Speedwerx spring? My 80-190 is black with a blue stripe. You should get engagement below 3000 without any magnets. 55 grams usually works pretty well with that spring. Adding weight should drop your top end quite a bit so don't get too aggressive. Adding weight to the tip will make the top end even worse and it won't really help engagement since the tip is tucked behind the pivot until you get moving. I'm wondering if something else isn't right. Sticky primary? Not the blue stripe? spring not seated properly?
