I have thought about replacing the secondary spring and might as well if I'm going to be in there. Did you replace the roller in the secondary at all, I see BDX has what looks like an upgrade in there "rock" rollers.
We haven't had good snow on the lakes yet and I've only seen mine up to 102 on the gauge but I lost pretty good to my buddies 800 Skidont.
I'm thinking the plowman and come of this other maintenance should be a good boost in being able to transfer the power.
When I bought our F8 last year I had the dealer check the VIN numbers for any updates. He asked if it had E-start and I told him no. He said thats good as that E-start had a lot of problems in those chassis on the F8 HO. I hope you dont run into any of those issues.
Yes I went with the BDX rock rollers. I got them cheap some where but don't remember now. Oh wait a minute. I got them from Thunder products and I also installed one of there Glide washers in the primary clutch and got all my clutch bushings to rebuild the primary clutch from them.
If I can find a used D&D LTS head mod head cheap I might put that, a 2 degree key & a D&D y-pipe in it before finishing the rebuild. I am waiting on a part that back ordered till the 22nd on that sled. The combo of those parts are worth about 10HP bumping it up to the low 170's HP. If you go to D&D web site they have whats called a riot kit for the newer 800's with a can and clutching. On the 2010 & 2011 you dont need a the can. With that set up you dont need a fuel controller either and is one of the reason I am looking around for it. That and like all sledders I am Greedy in the HP department. lol
These motor mounts are very soft and a Plowman mount is a good idea to install IMO.
With the 2011 there was a ECU update make sure that got done. Have your VIN numbers checked to find out. Here is the link on Arctic Insider that talks about the reflash..
