    Massimo 500 secondary spring

    Got secondary spring on went for test ride. I'm guessing Primary wasn't all the way on the splined shaft and the nut worked itself off and ground the grooves away inside the sheave. Time to upgrade to a machined sheave from rhino
  7. Gonna be putting on an orange secondary clutch spring to try and help the underpower issue. Fun machine but is a turd when you need to spin the tires quick. Anyone else done any clutch work. Was also thinking about a new machined sheave later.

    Had some gouges in head smoothed out with razor put new gasket in. Seems to be running fine. Had some white smoke out exhaust once warmed up but I believe it from old coolant left in there from original problem. 20181105_162247.mp4

    Difficult to get out of gear.

    Helped me to tap gas like I was going to take off but instantly hit brake and it would shift fine

    Ordered from motorcycle doctor. Put new gaskets in everything back together and fired right up. But saw bubbles between head and hug. Gonna take back apart and try resurfacing

    Head swap 500/700?

    Figure could get some more power from the bigger 700 piston

    Head swap 500/700?

    Would I be able to get a 700 head and piston to replace my 500? Or is it not that simple . Probably need a cam too? Anyone have info or ideas. Also remember reading somewhere about wiseco 11:1 pistons being compatible

    Just heard back from dealer, says Massimo won't cover warranty due to mud or water in side. Where should I look to buy parts
