Ricky, I'm in the process of selling my 27's now for some 31's. After going on a big ride this past weekend, I have to get some better tires and gc. I'm going to be running the yellow secondary spring, not sure about primary. I hope it works well!

Bad a$$ pics by the way!

I would go the stiffest springs, I odn't know which one it is, but the full clutch kit isn't too bad either. Kevin has it in his bike and he loves it, it's got such a HIGH stall.

I would go 29.5's though, 31's are a bit much for me....it's a lot of stress on the brutes weak tie rods and steering components.

I only want to go with 31's because I already have 14" wheels. I don't want to buy a whole new set of wheels and tires. The yellow spring is the next step after the red secondary. I'm going to try the stock primary and see how it is and then go from there. How hard is it to replace the secondary, you know?

You will burn that belt w/o a clutch kit, trust me. Kevin burned one on the 1st hole w/ 29.5's.

I hear ya on the rims though...I wouldn't want to buy new ones either. I was so close to buying 31's bc i had the 14's.

Be ready to replace axles and tie rods!

It's not hard if you have the tool (to do the spring) I can do it with my eyes closed I've done it so many times. The tool is a must, and it's 80 dollars!

I actually need the whole clutch kit? From my understanding on High Lifter, I can replace just the springs to get back what I need from the tires?

Eh, I changed my mind, I think I'm just going to go with the 29.5's with the red secondary. Gotta sell my wheels and tires though. :/ Does Kev's bike have some grunt to it to pull those Outlaws?

OMG yes. It pulls HARD. Both our bikes do, we never really have a problem spinning tires...it's trying to make them slow down thats the problem! It's funny though, he can ride wheelies all day on his bike, I can get mine up no problem...but we can't get eachothers bikes to wheelie.
