Educate me on clutch springs on dirt bikes
As you know I have a DR350. Previous owner said it has a big bore kit on the top end. (supposed to kick it up to 435 cc, don't flame, just telling you what I was told, I have no clue) He said he put a kevlar clutch with a heavy spring kit to handle the power. My question is how many spring kits over oem are available. This one will give you forearm pump like a mofo. I will be doing mostly easy riding in my old age. But would really like a good easy clutch feel (like stock) , but maintain a little structual integrity on the holding. The local place said they had oem and 15 percent over. I would think I have the dual friction version due to how tough this thing is to pull in.
What are the options out there? Thanks for your help, I have been out of the motorcycle scene for close to 15 years, so count on me asking some stupid questions as I relearn these things.
