Default Trail sled Mods

Well I picked up a 95 xlt end of last season currently has a DG can and other than that is stock. I mostly ride trail with my buddies, so what would you all recommend for some mods for a more speed and power without breaking the bank

Tough to go wrong with clutching/gearing.

General maintenance, replace all bearings in your bogie/idler wheels for less rolling resistance.

Pipes and clutching give those old girls 22 ponies . Bone stock it's lucky if it has 87 horse and probably less with that can . Bumping the timing a few degrees is a must .

If it's in fairly decent condition it's worth cleaning up , for some it offers a fun factor that today's sleds can't .

I've been reading up that pipes will cause a lot more over heat issues what has your experience been with that?

Yes and no , the pipes require different clutching , primary and secondary and jetting to get what is required to get the horse power that bumps the rpm from 8000 to 9000 . Engagement is bumped from something like 3800 to somewhere around 4500 , the mid range is of course also bumped and that's where the sweet spot is making it hard to stay out of , thus the heat problem .

The clutches run hot because it's a triple to begin with and the bottom end isn't where it's at . Clutching for the pipes should run cooler but the fun factor makes it kind of hard to back off .

The other is that the closed up recoil housing that makes a great kiln and can cook the crap out of the stater when abused on warm spring days .

Seems like it depends on the nut behind the throttle .

Spend the money on maintenance and freshening her up. That's where you'll find your performance vs where it is now. Listen to Blitz. After that, then let's look at pipes/heads/reeds
