you really should have more than enough power to turn those tires honestly. Especially in low. If you do get some clutch work make sure its mild. EPI should have kits for those older sportsmans. I'd look at a mild kit from them.

they have this

500 Sportsman 4x4 98-00 (EBS) 0-3000' Elev WE485050B

I would call and talk to them first though and tell them what you have and how you ride and what size tires. I bet this is the kit they will recommend.

2010 850, I have a epi mudder clutch kit coming, but im only running sti 27" wheels...Will there be any problems running this light of tire when trail and multipurpose riding? The kit is going to be for when i get 31" laws but i dont plan on running them all the time unless the lighter tires will have a negative effect on my bike.

It will just feel like it's geared really low.

got the epi mudder clutch kit...it works great, but in idle it moves my bike forward making it hard to shift...I already stripped my linkage out, is there any suggestions to getting my secondary to not grab the belt when just in idle?

Usually is its creeping on you like that that is a sign that your belt is worn out. I had this same problem and put a new belt on it and it hasnt done it since.
