I have a 2012 grizzly 700 i just recently installed a Jbs sheave, a purple secondary spring and a slug kit I’m loving the power and everything but it’s now hard to shift almost like the wet clutch is engaged at idle. Any body else have this issue?

Is the cage firmly installed?
I know with my 660, when the cage is off and I start the engine, the primary turns at idle.
Also, adding weight to the shoes may be the problem.

Yes the cage is fully installed actually quad is completely back together. When cold it creeps a little in gear also. I’m wondering if I’m gonna have to take it back apart and pull slug kit out. Hopefully someone’s had this issue before and there’s a different fix. Not sure if you can lower the idle a bit on a fuel injected grizzly or not i have not been able to find anything online

I don't use the J.B.S. sheave or slugs, but........
Does this happen only when the idle is high when the engine is cold, or even when the engine is hot (at operating temp)?
If you take the cover off, start the engine and watch the primary for turning when cold then hot with the trans out of gear.
If it turns and you remove the cage, look to see the cage bearing is in place. Also start the engine again and notice if the primary turns faster with the cage removed.
Just throwing out ideas.

Turn your idle rpm down some. That will stop the wet clutch from engaging.
When slugs are installed in the wet clutch, it's common to have creep or drag in the wet clutch without lowering the idle rpm.

Do you know how to turn the idle down on fuel injected 700? I actually just tore it back apart removed the slugs and it’s back to normal but if i could turn the idle down a bit i would love to put them back in

The idle adjustment is under the black plastic forward of your seat, positioned to the right front corner of the airbox lid. It's a large phillips head screw.

I’ve read numerous posts of people saying not to touch that screw on a fuel injected model because the ecm controls the air fuel ratio or something along the lines of that. Do you know something different? It would be great if i could lower it by that

That's a bunch of BS. That idle adjustment has nothing to do with, nor controls anything with the ECM or the injection.
It's a simple adjustment, and turning that screw only adjusts the butterfly valve opening in the throttle body.

It's in the factory service manual, page 8-43.
It's in your best interest to download one. For less than $20 all these procedures are in there. All proper torque specs, etc.

Thanks a lot I’ll have to take it back apart toss the slugs back in and try it. Might run it like it is with just the Jbs sheave for now until winter is over

For now I would just run it like it is. It's already put back together. BUT...try the idle adjustment. See how it changes. Turn it clockwise to increase rpm, counter-clockwise to lower.

Thanks. Sounds like you know your way around these machines I’ve been reading a ton of topics on here and see you comment on everyone with very good information.

Wonder if this is the same for the 708 engine on the 2016+ grizzlys??
I’d love to knock 50-100 rpm off my idle.

On my 2015 canam 800 outlander there was NO way to adjust the idle.
It was computer set.
Even the dealer told me that they could not do it.
Mine idled 1350rpm the Manual said it should be 1250 +\- 50 rpms
The dealer said mine was within tolerance.
I told him that was BS. It clunked shifting in gear, they’d do nothing for me.

I've noticed mine does it a little bit when it's really cold out side till the engine warms up , I thought it might just be thick oil in the wet clutch but not sure. I wonder if running a thinner oil in the winter would help.
