Clutch kits clutch kits clutch kit! Help me out guys.

I am at the point where I'm sick and tired of reading.. I have been trying to study and decide on what clutch kit is for me... Let me tell you how I ride and maybe you can help me decide. I ride hard and fast! I know that may sound dumb but its true! I'm not into mud anymore I'm all about TOP END and instant response from the clutch. I push my 700 to limits at any chance I get in corners and hills.. The ideal clutch kit in my head would give me the off the line snap that I want and I need easier wheel spin in the corners so I can slide easier.. I'm even taking off the 26" that I'm running now and going back to a stocker 25".. So my main question is.. What kit will do this for me.. I really don't want to loose top end while gaining bottom end. Should i go with heel clicker? Or simply just get heavier fly weights and utilize the stock primary spring? Also does anyone know if there are OEM polaris weights that are heavier than my 2004 sportsman 700 stockers?? Any help would be awesome! And maybe some clarification..

Call Quadshop Customs and ask for Adam. He knows clutches and will put together what you need instead of just pulling a kit off the shelf.

I like to 'drive the hell' out of my 500 HO quite often so I put an EPI full kit in my bike (sport utility kit for stock tires). BIG BIG difference! I feel like I've gained 10 HP! I get much better throttle response, it's way easier to slide the back tires around a curve, climb hills at speed, a bit easier to wheelie and no loss of top end. I can get a rooster tail of mud going now too! Even if you have to spend the cash on a full kit you'll be glad you did, it's still way cheaper than pipe/filter/jet kit.(this is a good time for a belt change if worn) A clutch kit will be my first mod on any machine I buy in the future.

See this is what I'm talking about! NO LOSS OF TOP END. That is my main concern. Lol I refuse to be felt behind on long straights by my best friends prairie 650! Lol all I want is that bottom lag gone so I can wheelie easier and spin better. Oh and I need the rooster tail to be able to spray my buddy in the face too.. Lol

So what is everyone's opinion about the heelclicker? I see a ton of mixed emotions about it and I'm not sure what to think???? Also does any one know if the ranger flyweights are heavier or maybe even the rzr's?? I'm willing to Frankenstein a clutch...

I would bet a new clutch is around 800 the QSC kit is 200 you get 2 springs and weights for the primary. You don't lose any top speed. I didn't on my 850 but rev'd quicker and had smoother punch throu out the whole powerband
