i have an 08 brute force 650 sra and ive done some mods to it already. the next area im wanting to look into is the clutch. i want to put an epi maroon spring as the primary and maybe a dalton overdrive clutch cover but i dont know where to find them on the net. does anyone have any sites or links you could share?

With those tires and the almond secondary you will be more than happy. I run 27" with an almond secondary and stock primary and it is plenty. Have fun and hang on.

im prolly only gonna use the springs for the primary clutch cause i dont know how stiffer springs affect the secondary clutch. i know it has something to do with backshifting but im not sure exactly what it does.

I think you will be good to go w/ the maroon in the primary & almond in the secondary, w/ only 25" tires you could have gotten by w/ the black sedonary. The almond MIGHT be too much for them but then again, you might love it.

i am eventually going to go with the vfj stage 3 clutch and i thought about getting the secondary lightened to. i might go with the almond secondary cause ive heard alot of people have that spring combo and it seems to work with their applications. i also just ordered the stuff to put an oil cooler on my bike. supposed to lower the operating temps by about 25-30 degrees.

The maroon won't hurt it at all...

Alot of people don't realize how much changing the primary will help your power.....even if its a small primary like the Maroon one......wait till you try a Gold,Red, and up.....you will leave the line like a NASA shuttle launching
