Default Summit 175 - Unwanted Engine Braking

Hi All -

Riding a 2015 800 174 and 2018 850 175, lots of trading back and forth this weekend and noticed a large difference in the way the two sleds react to letting off the gas. The 800 feels like an automatic car, gliding as the gas is let off. The 850 feels like a manual accelerated and then let off the gas in a low gear, throwing you forward towards the handlebar due to the engine braking - not fun!

Any ideas what may be causing this? Sticking primary? Wrong clutch settings? Expected behavior of the 850?

Thanks!

Umm that’s a good thing in my opinion. I cluched my sled to backshift even harder, it helps in the trees and it helps slow you down dropping down steep hills.

If you don’t like it don’t ever buy a I backshift clutch kit. There’s lots of engine breaking.

Do you know what clutching is in the sled?

Try to adjust the secondary so the belt sits lower in it. We noticed the same thing on ours.

Wouldn't this speed up belt wear?

Yes. Builds more heat with the slipping and lost performance too.

I personally can't say for sure if it does or not. But this is exactly what I was told by Joey (iBAckshift) to do to help with toning down the backshifting. It works.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. While I can appreciate that it might be beneficial in the technical stuff for better track control, as a still fairly new rider its been a bit of a handful.

How would one go about lower the belt in the secondary? Any other ways to reduce backshifting without robbing performance?

I wouldn’t run the belt to loose it will start rubbing on the belt guard and footwell area.

On a 2018 with the 531 belt you should see the cord on the side of the belt level with the top of the secondary clutch to be adjusted correctly.

Subscribed.

Want to get a clutch kit for my ‘19 FreeRide. I like a lot of engine breaking, and wondering how the different kits compare with each other. There’s so much going on with ramps it seems like; profiles, medthod & positioning of weight, etc.
