Hey guys 2 questions for ya. You may have saw my post "the new guy" well I'm back for 2 questions.

1st I was under the impression the 97' XC had the X-10 suspension. While out ridding this weekend I saw a couple 96-97 xcr's and noticed they have the X-10 sticker/stitching on the seat. Mine does not. Anyone know if the 97' XC (not XCR) had the x-10 suspension this year and what is the tell-tell sign of a x-10 set-up.

2nd the secondary clutch, hard to explain but on the round/domed part of the clutch it appears to have some markings in the aluminum. Would this be due to a bad mold during the casting or would this be signs of stress cracks forming. The markings are not deep, just surface abrasions, not smooth.

Thats it! :D Otherwise it is being very good to me. I love it. We have a trip planned for the second weekend in January for a bunch of us to head up to the U.P. I'll be one of the slowest, carefull guys, but I know my place and don't want to risk anyone elses fun for the weekend!

Question one solved. The 1997 Indy 600 (what it likes to be called...) Did come with the XTRA 10 suspension. Its brother the XCR advertised it as the X-10 on the seat covers. I guess the "racing" addition likes to show its flair! :D (Office Space, best movie ever!!)

Question 2 still stands. Maybe I'll take a pic and post it. The local dealer says it would just be from the casting, but I've heard some people grenading their clutches and doing some SERIOUS damage to sled & body. Can't be too safe!

That secondary looks like it's definately cracked!!! :eek: ALL OVER. Try polishing it with some scotch brite and most of those marks will virtually disappear. Next, spray some wd-40 on the area where the cracks used to be visible. Wait about ten seconds, If the marks seem to re-appear in the film left by the wd-40.......you got some definate cracks !!! ( the wd-40 will "soak" into the cracks. )( < - Kerosene works too ) Time for a new one. You don't want that thing to let loose running wide open across a field or lake. :(
