clutch upgrade ?

i have a 09 teryx bone stock. i use it for pushing snow, hauling wood,pulling a trailer. i also trail ride through the rocky, technical hills of KY. i do not like the clunking gear lash or the jumpy gas pedal. what kind of up grades have any of you guys done to correct these issues.thanks

No clutch mod will fix these issues.

Get used to the clunk and some people put a foot rest on the floorboard

Just add a stiffer spring to the foot pedal... More times than not you can find a spring to fit inside the stock spring and do it that way. I just found a complete replacement that has plenty of tension.

As far as the gear lash clunking... get used to it thats not going anywhere.

Do you have a part # Shan? With lack of free time right now, I'd rather just install a spring than cut, heat bend etc to the stock one.

I tried the heating and cutting and couldn't quite get the stiffness I was looking for without cutting to many coils off... The spring I had I found laying around at the shop(find anything if you look long enough hah) but I believe my dad took his stock spring up to napa and they had a whole kit of springs that he bought.

Dalton Clutch kit or Vforce John mod seem to be the most popular.
