Sounds like the orginal already, should be both yellow/ with a white stripe but I forgot the secondary but I believe its the same. Cat used that spring standard on almost every sled.

What is over 5000rpm?

Also these motors like that launch rpm, take that away they dont normally all that great. I think he pulled weight out of the primary to raise the rpm. What primary weights do you have.

when was the last time the clutch was cleaned and had new bushings and rollers? If everything is stock and engagement is high I would look into wear unless he has notched stock weights but that is unlikely.
