Usually a clutch kit is needed if you went to bigger tires.
You only shim your clutch when it's out of alignment or your belt isn't running in the center of your primary clutch.
Trying the heavier red primary spring will help you.... Your engine will rev higher before the belt engages and that means more power.
I have an 01 so not sure if your set up is similar, probably is though.
To change the spring , just remove the outer cover, (careful , it has a little spring tension on it) replace the spring , torque the cover screws back on. (check manual)
To remove the clutch , remove the center bolt and use a puller which threads into the center bolt hole and hits the crank shaft, popping the clutch off the tapered shaft. (you can buy a puller or make one)

the Sportsman 500 2000, came in with a no running problem, found stator no production of voltage, took cover off and hand start mechanism had fallen apart and was shrouded and broken the plastic and metal in 100 pieces and tore up the stator assembly. I replaced it with a new assembly also it...
