View Full Version : Ski Doo Clutching HELP?
08-24-2009, 02:49 PM
Ok guys and gals, I am looking to clutch a 2007 mxz 800ho Blizzard 121" track. sled is bone stock. Doesnt run bad now but i am looking for a little something. I mainly trail ride but like doing some "rookie" drag racing on the lake or fields every now and then. Looking for some suggestions and ideas please. I want something reliable and not a belt eater as well. Any help would be greatful. Any thoughts? Had a trail ported, piped, picked, clutched 670 that would rock for an old sled. Now i got the smoother ride 800 that i want a little more from.

Contact goodwin and let them know what you want. Hard to beat them for reliability and service on Doo's.

Go out to DooTalk and do a search. There are endless discussions on the topic.
I would suggest Dynamo Joe or Bill Cudney. I lean Joes way myself but you can not go wrong with either of them. Great service and product.

X2 for Goodwin. Great products/great people.
unless you ride with it pined all day long what is clutching going to change

Guys, thank you for the inputs, I have heard a lot of good things about Cudney from locals arround here as well. Still looking,and researching. Anyone with any input please comment. Am totally open minded here. Has anyone lined up with another sled stock and then after the clutch kit was installed?

It is all in the clutching!
For a plug and play system I would look at Goodwin for Doo (ramps, helix, pins, and springs).
all that clutching goes up in smoke with little or no traction, deep lugs = quik take offs

is your sled studded? when putting the power to the track you'll want to look at all the options. If your not studded I can't see the point of improvment, It would be like having a bad <font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font> drag car and not putting the proper tire on to hook up out of the hole. My .02 Skidoos are already clutched pretty good out of the crate.

Find Dynamo Joe over at Dootalk. Tell him what you have and he will set you up just right. I fyou haven't already, you will have to stud that ride to make her go. You probably won't get too much additional top end out of your clutch, but you sure will get there faster.

I ran a Dynamoe kit in my Renegade600, and so dod my brother in his MXZ600. Drastically improved out of the hole and mid range performance. Without a super high engagement. The secret to Joe's kit is the helix.http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

Guys thanks for all the input. I am going to sno motion this weekend to try and do a little more research with the guys there as well. My sled is studded with almost 1-3/8" woodies 96 of them, and being the blizzard it has the 1-1/4" rip saw track.

I would go with Dynamoe Joe.

Guys, Has anyone ever gone with a built secondary in lieu of building the primary. I was at sno motion this past weekend and a guy is remachining secondaries. He says you get crazy responce out of the hole and about 3 miles an hour faster top end. I will have to find his card and put his info on here. Anyone done this?

You can always play wiht the secondary, but remember it doesn't start spinning until the primary engages (and it only reacts to how the primary engages)....
Soooo you can have the best secondary in the world, but if your primary is a dog, the secondary will be a dog.
