It does great. My 2011 400HO really liked it. And like you said for twenty-five dollars you cant beat it..

I only say this because I had emailed the guy at EPI back and ask him what he recommended for my 2000 Trail boss 325 and he said the same spring.

Good luck!

Just ordered one off Amazon from Powersport Superstore. $23.31

Anyone running the spring with just stock tires? Any benefit?

I plan on going to 26" BH2 sometime soon, which they run a size larger than listed. Wanted to pick up this spring and some spacers before I get the tires.

It has nothing to do with the size of tire. It has everything to do with the weight of the tire. Most people dont consider this. Take a closer look at how much extra rotating weight you will be hauling. I bet that you will be surprised...

I have, the Big Horns are pushing almost 2x as heavy as stockers.

Think I'll try this since I'm running 27x11x14's on all four corners. I did notice a very small difference but it still slings mud like crazy. Just stopped popping up on take off

Received the spring today. Probably won't install it until I get new tires. Waiting for RDC to get spacers in stock before I order tires.

do you need a clutch compression tool to replace the spring?

No compression tool needed for replacing this spring..if you change the secondary then you need the compression tool..
