Thanks for the reply, the 09 we bought new in late May 2009. And while I knew some non-S models had it. I was told if it was built before March 09 it didn't have it.Depends on what secondary clutch is in your 09, all 09 S have the EBS secondary and the ones made before oct 1st in the regular have it too. Your 2012 has a rapid reaction secondarythats what im wanting to do. maybe it takes a softer primary spring to engage slightly lower RPM.What about lowering cruise rpm mine is like 5500 at 25 .
can you pm me on your h elix i might need one for my woods
we have two 800 RZR's, one is a 2009 other is a 2012 (of course the 2012 has the HO800 engine), both stock clutching, both have same Polaris 26 x 14" wheel tire kit. example, the 2009 will run about 5-6mph more in low range than the 2012 will before hitting rev limiter (and the 2012 has the rev limter raised 500RPM more with PC-V)
the 2012 just over all feels geared lower than the 2009. pretty sure they both have same transmission gear ratios and final drive ratios. or did Polaris change the gearing sometime between 09 & 12?
Same as reply to other guy, no way to lower it without messing up the calibration in another place. Ideally you should be holding RPM under load at around 6200 for a 800 and 8200 for a 900 but I know it is not going to be there when running a steady slow speed.
Not really worried about having engine braking, but if having the EBS team clutch will engage a slightly earlier RPM from idle like the 09 lll put one kn the 12z
Here is the thing with two, 09 is a non-HO 800 so it has a slightly milder cam from Polaris that the cam in the 12 HO800. So I'm thinking maybe Polaris retuned the clutch slightly looser on the HO800's to work in a slightly higher powerband possibly.
Thing is my 12 HO 800 which still uses the stock HO camshaft, has a 11:1 82mm big bore kit and crank works 79.5mm stroked crank giving about 845cc from the stock 760cc. The over 10% increase in displacement without going to a larger cam will actually pull down the powerband some and I feel like the entire clutching set up is too "loose" for the increased low-midrange torque of the greater engine displacement.
It's like it has all the extra power/torque over a regular or HO800 but doesn't get it to the ground, as the clutch doesn't grab low/early enough.
