If I may, I'd like to chim in & reply to a few questions 3TV had. If I'm outta line, just let me know ... of course, it'll be too late for this reply, but I'll know for future replies ... :dontknow: bowdown
I also have a machined sheave from Fix Power Sports, however, I purchased one for a 660 Rhino. (NOTE: I own a 660 Grizz & I bought mine a while back before this one came out for the 700 Grizz)
To answer your questions from what I've learned ...
Your question 1 & 2 - How many grams are the rollers ?
A. My first question to you is, do you have over size tires ? If you do, you need a clutch kit.
And, if you already have a clutch kit in, use THOSE rollers !
I can hear your reply, "Well, why do I want to buy this kit & not use their rollers ??" ... The Fix PS kit I assume comes for stock tires. If the rollers they send are the same weight as the stock 700 ... well, it never hurts to put new parts in.
AND ..... you MIGHT be able to get a machined sheave someplace else with no extra "parts" .... but it'll cost you just as much. So if you can spend the SAME money & get some new parts, the required grease (which is a quality grease), why wouldn't you buy this kit ?
Question 3 - Engagement RPM ? ...
A. You can get a tach from any Yamaha dealer. (At least I've seen them on their web sites) ...
I have a question for you ... Do you know at what RPM your Grizz engages ?? I sure don't. But, I do know, that with this Fix PS sheave ... it engages "Right Now" ... There's no hestitation, no lag, no wait for RPMs to build. It "FEELS" that as soon as I "TOUCH" the throttle, the bike is moving. I had to try this several times to realize just how smooth & quick the engagement was. At what RPM ? ... Who cares ??
Question 4 - I went rid'in yesterday. Hit snow, slush, mud & a lot of dusty dirt road. I also got to run mine flat out a little. Here's my impressions.
It takes almost no throttle to cruise at 25 or 30 mph. I was totally amazed at just how sweet this sheave is. And, if you're cruising & stab the throttle (my motor & pipe are stock except for this sheave & the Dalton clutch kit) ... the ass end of the bike squats down, the front end lifts & my bike just "Jumps" out & I'm hitt'in 45 or 50 damn quick. My buddy who rides an 07 Polaris 700, asked me after a few of these "C-ya later dude" stunts, "What the hell did you do your bike ??"
Anyway, your question was, Are the RPM's higher or lower than stock when cruising ?? ....... I don't know .... & personally, without a tach, I could care less ..... I'm just hav'in to much damn fun punch'in the trottle & do'in power slides like a sport bike !
Question 5 - RPM's higher or lower at full throttle ...
A. Dude, you need to buy a tach so you'll know what your bike is turning, cause I have no idea. I know I hit 58 MPH yesterday damn quick, before I had to shut it down for a turn, but the mototr was still pull'in hard. I mean ... I had so many bugs in my teeth form grinn'in .... it reminded me of fly'in down a dirt road on my Banshee. The performance is just flat unreal for a Grizzly. Oh yeah, not sure what your Grizzly weighs in at, but I figure mine is close to 800 lbs. (639lbs wet, winch, all the addons I have, extra gas, 27" 589's on steel wheels, folding chair & table, tools, shovel, etc ... & not counting my 240 lb fat ass) .... one more thing ... 58 mph on a Grizzly is faster than I really need to be do'in on that bike on a dirt road.
Question 6 - Is the kit for 25" tires & you ride at 6 to 9K feet.
A. I would guess the kit is for stock tires. But again, if you have oversize tires & a clutch kit already, stay with those rollers (IMO). Hav'in said that, I believe in BusterW's writeup, he mentioned you can get heavier rollers from Fix if you ask. Tell Fix PS what size tires you have, & maybe they'll supply you with some new rollers for the larger tires.
I ride at elevations of 5000 to 10,000 ft. So far, well ... I can NOT state how impressed & pleased I am with this machined sheave from Fix Power Sports.
7. How about some objective data ....
A. Now I'm sure BusterW will try all the time runs for ya when he can, but are you so skeptical of his evaluation, that you need that kind of info ?? Are you drag racing your Grizz ?? Cause I find timed runs don't mean crap when you're in the mud, snow or rocks. What's important is "Grunt Power", power to pull the machine thru the mud, etc. And believe me (& BusterW), this Machined Sheave from Fix Power Sports deliver's the goods. It has been the absolute best $250 + dollars I have ever spent ! .. Period !
Now, I hope I didn't ruffle any feathers here, cause I sure didn't mean to .... but when I read all your queations, I got the impression you didn't believe BusterW's evaluation ... So I have one last question for ya 3TV .... Has BusterW ever lead you astray before ?? I'd like to bet not.
Reguardless, if you don't believe his "WOWSER" remark .... then be a Manly Man, buy the sheave (I mean, it's only money & you have to have a reason to go to work, right ?), run your own tests, do a write up & call his bluff .........
But remember, I bought the sheave before BusterW did his write up ..... and I feel he's holding back ..... that's my "Hav'in So Much Fun" opinion.
Last question ... How many different names did ya call me while read'in this ..... :laughing7: :laughing7: :laughing7:
