    Too loose isnt good either. Then you get piston slap and premature wear.

    Right I know.. I called Polaris today and they couldn't even tell me what the specs were. Just want to get it right.. I know high revs ect cause heat, will swell pistons.. I know on my car/ boat set ups its .003-.005 but this is different being a 2 smoke screamer all the time..

    They list 2 diff deals.. So I would prob be going with what Matrix says. But again it sucks there is no book info out there on it..
