clutch kit

okay, supid question, when you get a clutch kit for running larger tires, what does it actually do to the atv? Do you have to pull in a clutch lever like a dirt bike?

No, it doesn't convert it into a manual clutch. All the clutch kit consists of is, stronger springs for the centrifugal clutch. All it does is, it raises the stall speed, it just lets the engine rev higher before the centrifugal clutch engages.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

If you are going to go inside there for that I would recommend changing to stiffer springs on your change clutch and new plates for it as well. Might as well kill two birds with one stone. The stiffer springs on the change clutch help to eliminate slipping when you shift especially with the bigger tires. I put stiffer change clutch springs and new plates in mine when I had it apart and it made a huge difference in the stiffness of it. The lever is a little harder to move due to the stiffer springs but it snaps right into gear with no slipping AT ALL.
