Have a 95 zr580 and the primary clutch blew apart. I am getting a low mileage used clutch for it and the new one has a red spring. The clutch that blew apart had a yellow spring. Does the yellow spring engage at a higher rpm? Is the red the stock spring for this sled? Just wanted to know if there is a big difference between the two.

The colors do relate to a specific spring tension. Though I think it also depends on the manufacturer. For instance, I checked the pn on the yellow spring on mine and it is the oem Arctic Cat #. But checked the chart on the Comet website and found that they list a red spring for mine. By the way I just ordered a new Comet 108 exp clutch with red spring and a-25 weights which is what their chart lists for my machine. Hop it's as good or better than stock. Look for part nubers and try to cross them with the manufacturer.

Assuming there all cat springs, the red one would be what is stock in a EXT(a trail touring machine that is bassicaly the same as the ZR) and would engage at about 3200-3500. The yellow/green that you had in your ZR would engage at about 4500. Just make sure you use the right weights.

As Paintballdude said, the red Arctic Cat Red spring is what came stock in that machine, along with 57 gram weights. Arctic Cat has a yellow/green and a Yellow/white spring. Theres not a great difference between the two, the Yellow/white has a higher finish rate and would require different weights. I would spend $20.00 and buy a new Red spring. On the primary, the heavier the spring the higher the engagement but lower top end rpm. You have to maintain the right rpm to stay in the power of your pipe. Assuming everything is stock stick with the Red.

Yes. everything is stock. The clutch that blew up didn't engage intil about 5000rpm it had the yellow and white spring. This new one is all stock with the red, so I think I will stick with it. Maybe it will help out on the fuel mileage.

Generally the smaller engines require higher engagement. They just don't have the torque on the lower end. If you're on trails it should be fine. If you get into some deeper snow it might struggle. 57 grams weights seem a little high but they might work with that setup. You can't go wrong with stock and tweak from there if necessary.
