Clutch RPM limit

While driving our riot around it sounds like it's bouncing off the rev limiter. What is the rev limiter set at? It only has 46 hours on the machine so its hard for me to think the clutch could be worn out. Could a worn belt be causing this rise in rpms to the point its hitting the rev limiter? It's getting up to 8500-8600 but not really going that fast, maybe 20-30mph. My Revolt doesn't get above 8000rpm at max speed. We recently bought this machine and don't know how long it's been like this.

I also have a question on it backfiring every time I let off the throttle.

Re: Clutch RPM limit

The rev limiter is set at 8300 I believe. I had the same problem hitting the rev limiter and the way to fix it is with clutch weights. Do you know what size weights you have? When I bought my riot it had 4 37gram weights and it would often hit the rev limiter. I found that 2 37grams and 2 39grams weights works best for me, keeping it right at 8200rpm. But that shouldn't effect your top speed by that much maybe a few mph, but the weights wouldn't be causing a top speed of 30. Hopefully someone else has a thought on that low top speed.

As far as the backfiring goes, do you have a big gun programmer and exhaust? I've found if my programmer isn't set quite right it backfires a decent amount.


I would suggest getting figuring out which weights you have in your clutch and pick up a few 39's and see what works best for you, it's very easy to change the weights to compare everything. And also a big gun programmer should help that back firing problem

Re: Clutch RPM limit

As far as I know it's all stock. It was bought so my son could go with us out on the dunes. If I wanted to lower the clutch rpms down quite a bit lower should I just jump to a softer spring. I know I'm going to sacrifice power but don't want my wife or in-laws to have to rev it so high to get it to move or just drive nicely around.
There is no programmer and stock exhaust.

The low top end speed may be due to the secondary not shifting out all the way. I have a Big Gun Programer for sale. $160.00 shipped to you.

That definately sounds like a clutching issue. Is your secondary closing all the way? Is your belt badly worn? It should sit even with the outer edges of the secondary when the machine is stopped.

Re: Clutch RPM limit

The Riots have an issue where the inside sheave of the secondary clutch hits the frame preventing full shift out (tranny side of the secondary clutch). Look at the frame on that side of the clutch (the drivers side down tube behind the tranny) and you will probably see rub marks on the frame and also on the clutch itself.

You can definitely change primary spring/weights to change the power delivery and lower your engagement. If you have (4) 37G weights (its' stamped on the side of the weight) then you will benefit changing to (2) 39G weights if not all 4 since you're bouncing the rev limiter. You also need to make sure both clutches are clean and functioning correctly and the belt is not trashed.

Re: Clutch RPM limit

Thanks for the info. I'll pull the cover and check it out tomorrow. I'd go look right now but my brain is fried from putting my truck back together.

Would the Big Gun help with the backfiring when I let off the throttle?
