thanks. I haven't clutched for this elevation because I don't want to pull my clutches apart every time I go to the mountains. wont bypassing the solenoyed use way more fuel? I think I'll try it anyway. I am thinking of taking the clutches to a shop with the tools and getting them to go over them. From reading other threads with similar problems, the secondary seemed to be related in most cases :/

I'm wondering, what are you getting for Peak Rpm?
If it is over revving, it will act as is there is no power since you would be running beyond the power band.

Your range should be in the neighborhood of 8000 rpm.

With the solenoid activated, the VES valves are either in the low position or the high position. They are not variable. With the solenoid out of the picture, the valves open a little sooner and are more variable, transitioning with RPM from low to high. Polaris added the solenoid to help with exhaust emissions, not for any additional power. It shouldn't make any difference in fuel consumption either way. It's easy to try and easy to put back if it's not helpful or you don't like the way it works. Your call.

Like RJ said, your rpm at 9000 is out of the powerband. I would at least change the weights and spring in the primary when you ride the high country.

I'll try that with the valves for sure. I 'll also try and set my clutch up. Ridding around home I am at about 1700 ft. and when I go high I am usually in the ball park of 3600 +. My primary looks blue and black, but maybe the paint just came off after a while. I am a little daunted by the whole thing, but now is as good a time as any to learn. Thanks for all the help guys.

Got the head pulled off my sled today and found scoring on the mag side cylinder. I'll pull the cylinders tomorrow and see what I find. Hopefully all they will need is a light honing, and I can drop the Fix kit in there!
