99 zr 700 gearing

picked up a 99 zr 700 carb... seems like the gearing is way to high for the sled has anyone had any luck gearing this sled to wake it up on the bottom end?? top end aint to big of a deal to me 80- 100 is fast enough for me just looking for more kick in the butt!!

1999 was 24/39 2000 was 23/40 So 2000 gearing would give you a bit more bottom end

You could run 19/40 Powder special gearing but that would be a bit much depending on track size. It shouldnt lack bottom end.

My buddies 99 with that same gearing and a single pipe will almost flip over backwards if you pin it from a get go. his sled is 100% stock except he has a new primary...

maybe you have clutching issues?

The 23 40 would be good, even 23-39 or 22 39!

The Arctic Cat spec. for max rpm for a 2000 ZR 700 is 7900 to 8100

How does the belt/ clutches look? are they old? does the belt ride 1/8 above the secondary just sitting there?

you could just move your secondary spring to get 200 more rpms but that's likely a band aid for a real issue. Im sure others will chime in

Yes belt rides 1/8 inch above and yes I'm sure clutches are possibly worn it has over 6000 miles on it.. Just makes me want to set it a flame getting beat by a 500

As I mentioned on the other thread, Start with a compression test! Next would be the reeds! Then go threw the clutches!

The reeds are on the underside of the cyl!
Have you mesured your center to centers? (12.2 12 1/4" works)

Does it also have 54gr weights in it?
Are the buttons in the secondary in good shape?
Have you checked the spring in the secondary is not broken?
If you had it apart,did you give the anchor plate the 1/3 twist needed to pretension the spring?

Is there a clutch kit or gear setup to wake this sled up?

That will certainly contribute to the problem.
How much clearance is there between the engine and torque stop [behind the clutch]?
