Tuning for SLP single pipe

I've read all the posts regarding pipes, and decided on an slp single for my '00 rmk 700 w/144" track. V-force reeds are on back order, but will follow the pipe. Other than a boost bottle, (I'm told that would clean up the bottom end), reeds and the pipe it'll be stock. Where do I start with jetting? I've got 56g weights. I run 6-9000'. Anyone have experience with this set up?

Re: Tuning for SLP single pipe

The pipe comes with a good spec sheet. If you want to really make the pipe work though, Install heelclicker weights. You will be able to run real heavy on the bottom end and generate some serious heat in the pipe right from the get go. And that is what the SLP single pipe needs - lots of heat!

If you have the inclination to go high end weights, let me know. My '99 RMK700 is dialed in to a tee and it screams. I am happy to share my setup info with the serious tuner.

Re: Tuning for SLP single pipe

Watched what a good set of Heelclickers will do this weekend. The '99 700 RMK we road with could do climbs I never saw a
snowmobile accomplish before, with ease. The hardest thing our friend had to tackle was keeping the skis within a foot of the ground
on the really gnarly hills. It's simply awe inspiring watching a sled climb a hill with only the last foot of the track in the snow.
RAW POWER...without any other mods except for a can and Hellclickers.

If you can't buy what you want, BUILD IT!!

I have a 2000 RMK 700, I run SLP single, V-Force reeds, Boost bottle, 62.5 weights, 50/32 short helix, 190/195 jets
I ride 6000-9000 ft. runs very good. but make sure the pipe is hot or it will surge at wot.
good luck Jack.

Re: Tuning for SLP single pipe

We found that removing 1/4" from the the inlet end of the pipe will do a lot for the surge at wot. But even better yet was the use of the Heel Clicker weights. The addition of the 10 grams on the heel generates enough heat in the pipe to do cold shots within 100 feet. Then when the pipe gets hot, it really runs good!

Re: Tuning for SLP single pipe

Where can I get heel clicker weights, how do I know what to buy. How do they perform in the trees. Do I need to change
anything else to run those weights.
Thanks Jack
P.S. I'm really happy with the way my clutch performs,what will it change in clutch performance.

Re: Tuning for SLP single pipe

You can get the weights and info at http://www.supertorquer.com
There is a small modification to make to your primary clutch. You have to drill three holes to make room for the heel on the weight. And just use your stock helix. You will need to do some fine tune adjusting to get the best performance out of your sled, but it really is easy to do. I thought I was happy with the performance of my clutching prior to installing the weight too. It was like night and day for me though the first time I went out with them.
Visit the web page and read Randy's tech article. That will help you understand what these new weights are all about.

Re: Tuning for SLP single pipe

I run 62 grams with an additional 11 grams combined on the heel. I used to run lightning weights and like the heel clickers better. The bottom end is unbelievable.
