hi everyone so I have a 99 formula z 583 with 2800 miles I have a couple of questions when I am accelerating there is a range I would say 20-50mph(guess because its been a while sense ridden) but right in that range there is a loud clicking that happens it feels like it happens when the clutches move the sled performs fine just makes noise should I be worried? and the other question I have is what should the top rpm of this motor be mine likes to rev to like 8800 rpm not sure if that's bad thanks for any help

While it wouldn't hurt to go through both clutches, you can isolate the issue with he marker check. Take a sharpie and draw a line on the inside of a sheave on both clutches. Take the sled out and wind it up. See which line is not completely worn off. That's where you start. Understand? Good luck either way.
hey everyone so I found out some new information I took my sled for a long ride today and it is doing two different things now. the clicking has gotten less noticeable but I found it does not rev to 9000 instead it revs to 8. the problem I have is now half the time I go to stop the sled will only idle at 4000 rpm and the rest of the time it's normal also the thing feels really boggy once I pin it it feels strong for the first few seconds then bogs down anyone have any ideas
