    X Charger Clutch Slip

    I rebuilt my charger using McMaster spring washers. Some where on this forum I say the pounds/inch torque values for the X charger clutch slip. One value was setting initial slip and second value was rechecking slip after a couple of hours of riding. Can anyone help.

    Usually they're set at 1 ft/lb for every lb of boost. I've never used an x-charger though...

    My 08 manual indicates 96-150 in/lbs for the X-Charger. I just reset the slip on the wifes ski at 120 in/lbs using 2 shims. Done.

    Did the extra shims help boost pressure. My used factory clutch slip was at 90 in/lbs. Wondering if I set the slip to 120 if that would increase power.

    Not exactly.......when the clutch slips you get LESS boost, and more wear on the clutches. The stock X-charger produces about 10 pounds of boost. The shims, or a higher slip moment, increases the point at which the clutches will slip. Understand the clutches need some slip for without slip bad things could happen. A good rule to follow is 12 in/lbs for every 1 lb of boost for setting the slip moment........12x10= 120 in/lbs.

    I set the X-chargers to 140-150 inch/lbs, will get a whole season out of them for most riding conditions unless the guy rides real hard in the rough water....... On another note I set my 2 Rude to 190-200 inch/lbs and it will last me the whole summer And I ride hard
