What should the stock engagement rpm be on a 98 ZR 600 EFI? Mines engaging at 5000 rpm- seems high to me. Stock clutching I believe- Yellow/White primary spring. If it is wrong, what would be the cause of it? And how do you disassemble these clutches if I need to? Thanks guys.

Stock engagement is around 4,500 to 5,000 rpm. Your clutch could be wearing out, and you do need special tools to take it out. (clutch puller)

Looking for a rear skid for my 99' ZL 600 EFI, looking at any skid at the moment as long as its a 121x15"
Need part # 0708-042 or 0708-096 BRKT,ENG MTG/BEARING SUPPORT-MACH pm me if you have one! Thanks!

Mines around 4500 and its jerky i heard they come from factory jerky next year my uncles got a clutch package (goodwin clutch) thats suppose to be more torque more top end and smoother engagement. Suppose to be a lot easier on the sled so ill spend the 300-400 dollars for the parts. That jerkiness is hard on those drive parts :P

Going to fast for ya?!

What in the clutch would wear out and make the clutch engage at a higher rpm?

The bushings in the primary wear out and cause it to stick which causes the higher engagement. The weight bushings are the main culprit but the main bushings should be replaced too. Your primary clutch should be rebuilt every 2000 miles.

MOTOMAN, at 4500 RPM engagement should not be jerky. Don't take this the wrong way but I would guess any jerkiness is caused by you. After you get used to the sled you should be able to take off very smoothly. BTW the 600 non-APV twin doesn't make any HP at low RPM's that's why you need the high engagement and with all of the 600 clutch setups on here for around $100 I would never buy anyone's $300 kit.

If it don't go, chrome it!
