Same mods for any power, need more HP or a way to put it to the ground better.

The Dalton clutch kit does well and the Muzzy pipe adds some HP

I really think low just puts less stress on belt but little to know better low end performance

They machine the surface of the clutch where the belt rides, really does not affect low end and mostly for top end. Some mid range performance gains have been reported.

Engine mods and tires still need spring and weight changes.

I know we are talking about two totally diffrent animals, but my 840 with Vforce johns clutch kit NOT his mod is amazing. I had an EPI with exhaust before and put an FST 840 with the VFJ clutch kit (weights&springs) and I am impressed. It pulls from low to mid to top no lags . Keeps peak horespower through all shift points. My vote would be Vforcejohns clutch kit $229 and adjustable. He will set it up for your riding conditions and bike setup and will answer his phone anytime you have a question.
