Diablo 502 Power Problems

Postby petermuel » Sun Dec 11, 2016 10:23 pm

Hi All,
After a restoration this summer and a snow fall last night my 502 was able to hit the snow today. It is running a tad rich after a fresh rebuild but is close. It seemed to run fine and get up to rpm while on hard pack but once it hit powered it was if the clutches were not shifting to allow rpms to be maintained. When I cleaned the secondary it had a stiffer spring in with the original spring to I assume correct this problem. I know on the Hus-Skis this is never a problem but this is the first Diablo I have driven. Is this a common problem to bog down or is my secondary clutch spring getting weak?
Thanks Peter

Hi Peter
Going to fire up my Diablo today. You could pop the hood off and drive it to see what the clutches are doing. My Diablo was acting the same on my first run years ago. It turned out the high-speed had to be turned in to 3/4 of a turn to run well. Then no problem. Good luck.
