I also have a 2009 sportsman 500 HO...and have had it up to 50, but i know it will go faster ...but i mostly ride it on a farm and by the time i get it up to 50,i'm heading for the woods....:biglaugh:but i'm sure it will reach maybe 60+mph....its broken it and i've changed every fluid and filters on it...MUDDIE49
I have had mine up to 58mph then backed off that was fast enough on a country road but it still had throttle left and i would guess around 65 would be top speed. Also mine is bone stock except for maxxis bighorn 2.0 tires which hold the road awesome.
I've had mine just under 60. DirtyDawg what did you use for weights and springs and such when you did that cluch job. I was looking at your website and saw there was a few differnt choices i think.:scratchchin:
The clutch kit for that model includes a roller secondary clutch, secondary spring, multi angle helix, primary spring and standard weights. The parts in the kit will depend on what is done to your machine. Engine mods, tire size, elevation, rider weight, and riding conditions. We custom set up kits to every persons needs.
DD Dale wont steer you wrong, He is in business to make $ AND keep his customers happy. I got my kit from another mail order place, but they asked me what Mods I had done to my machine, if any, and if I had installed larger tires, were I lived and what elevation above sea level. then sent me the kit I needed. I suspect Dirty Dog Dale can and will do the same for you. He may even have the tools for sale you will need to do the work yourself I would think.
At any rate, it will make a huge difference.
I have a 2010 500HO and have had it up between 60 an 64. Pleanty of power I pulled a 2 gang 3foot wide disc with 300lbs of weights on it with no problem. We are very pleased with it so far. 29hrs and just over 120 miles on it.
