Another quick question


Ollie, We have great places to ride around Collinsville. we sometimes ride a place called Calahan's cave and of course Little Rock City. So far my favorite is Aetna Mtn. Only been there once. I'm thinking of riding this weekend at Aetna???

Come up sometime and we will explore the big city.

I'll find out about his clutch kit. I am pretty sure they put the kit in and not just a Spring. His Brute is a 07 model with 29.5 swamplites
I smoked him and a Suzuki was wanting to race him so he went to the local Kawi shop and asked what he could do and they said CDI box and a clutch kit. They installed both and it does rev then jerk into gear. He spent 600 bucks and the difference was barely noticable. I told him to order some 27 inch tires and he would be tons better but he likes the big tires.

I have a 2008 Brute. Bought it new 2 months ago and have decided it is time to start the mods Smile I want to do a pipe ( just bought a Penland ECO series slip on 2nd hand) and need to adjust my fuel to match. So I need to either wait on the VDI box or order a power commander. But I hear conflicting stories on the PC... some good some bad.

Where is this Cannon guy that can tune my FI?

When I had the 25 inch tires the clutch was fine but with the 26 inch radials it seems to have a little bit of ?? play or something. SO who can do the clutch spring and how much will that cost?

here is the link for tuning....
http://www.mudanddirt.com/madtuning.htm

If your buddy has 29.5 Swamplites he don't need any more than a Lime Green secondary spring. If he will put a Pink Primary which has NO stall It will even it out somewhat but the pink Primary is not a must....but it will help.

Now, who will change the clutch spring? and when? and how much? Smile

most dealers will for about $50

So, who's wants this job Smile

Does everyone agree with the almond spring? with my 26 radial tires?

Yes...all you need is an Almond secondary for yours....

If my Brute is running rich enough to start fouling my plugs wouldn't a pipe help me with the rich condition?

Yes...it can....butif you add a pipe you NEED to but a PCIII or if its a carb model a Dynojet jet Kit.

Where is brecon?
Aetna Mtn is just across the Al state line (going north). I think it is the Tiftonia Exit. It is Awesome. I would love to ride something new like brecon. Let me know when you are going and I will bring a couple of freinds.

All of my freinds like to have a cold drink when they ride... might be a problem for some? I don't drink but they ALL do. Smile

Boot and BD you guys do realize those swamp lites are as heavy as a 29.5 outlaw dont you i know the swamp lites are 38pounds and im pretty sure the outlaws are like 36pounds a tire. I would strongly recommend the red, lime green might cut it but id rather be safe than sorry especially if you ride those swamp lites in thick mud any thing smaller than a red is not gonna cut it. for the primary i would leave it stock or go with the pink and stock weights. and really it all depends on what he wants it to do to!!!! let us know a little more about what he is wanting out of it and i can better help you figure your clutching out. i have installed every spring there is for a brute force.

dunno exactly about the kings i have seen a how to on the kings and honestly they look kinda similar atleast the primarys do i have never seen a secondary.. they are easy its just messing with them to figure out where you want them that is hard its easy to just install a spring its difficult to get them tuned exactly how you want it.

They both weigh 39lbs. each in 10 inch width. but for just trail riding and what he is doing a Lime Green is fine...I wouldn't got any higher than a Blue spring...it the one between the Lime Green and Red.

The KQ & Brute CVT are different....the KQ is not any harder its just they kinda of work different.... Like on a Brute you can run stock weights and change springs and do real good as to where on the KQ the weights are a key factor. There are alot more options for the Brute though. There Primarys look different but the secondary is close...cause the KQ has Roller weights and the BF does not.

For the secondary its just a spring compressor tool....I think you can use it a KQ on a BF...cause EPI only sales one...


think Well that will give me something to research and read about at work tomorrow. Razz Laughing Laughing

OK, I talked to my buddy with the 07 Brute. He went back to ask about the clutch and the guy told him that it won't hold back because of the CDI box that he installed. He said it overides the computer and tells it not to hold back. Wow!

I ask him if he knew what clutch kit he put in it and he said that he got a box and it had like 3 springs in it. He did remember the mechanic telling him that he was going to put a red spring in it

Thats the thing.....Red Primary or Red Secondary???? The Red Primary has alot of stall to it.

When its in grear and he hits the gas does it rev up and then jerk hard???
