I just baught a 500, I tested it out ran it down the street checked the oil it all seemed good. But now when I got it home I was checking out other people's top speed and mine redlines at 35 mph, so I thought I would do a oil change and see if that would help, but during the oil change I found metal shavings and sludge in the filter and oil, so now I don't no what to do, any help is needed

thought of that and replaced that already and no change, I was thinking something with the gear box not shifting in to high maybe? The dash say high but maybe it isn't engaging

Ride it with cover off and see if belt is riding at the top of primary and secondary; I would think that if you can run it to redline and only reach 35mph you must not be reaching top of prim and secondary. What for belt slip too but if that was it I think you would know by now. One more thing, are you sure speedo is correct?

Could be some crazy ass clutch kit someone put in there making it rev out to early.
I haven't had time to check clutch yet I hope tomorrow, day off no work, but it did just occur to me might be a weird clutch the pervious owner did have 30" outlaws, and I only have 26" zillas

So I took it apart today and from what I can tell the primary is a bit sticky but the secondary barely moves at all only 1/4 of a inch or so when it is red lining
