Default Prairie 400 clutching.

I am looking for some information on clutching for a 2000 p400. I have already talked with vforcejohn and he can't really help me apparently the 400 used a different and crappy clutch. Mine is ok for now but there are grooves worn in the sheeves I assume from idling and there is a big of lag on downshifting it doesn't appear to ever been serviced either needs a new belt etc. I want to address the clutch before it becomes a problem and leaves me stranded. I have read the comet clutch doesn't come close to fitting and people have swapped to a Polaris setup with good results. This is what I am looking at will this setup fit ok?

NEW! POLARIS MAGNUM 500 PRIMARY DRIVE CLUTCH 1999-2000 1321976 | eBay

Polaris ATV secondary clutch Sportsman Magnum OEM NEW | eBay

I know there are cheaper ones but these are new I really don't want to try to piece a few together to make 1 good one I will pay a little
More for a new bolt on and just throw some Stiffer springs in does anyone know if this will work

The '99 and later 400's had a good working clutch. If it's noisy, you can install different sized spacers to take the knock out of it. The secondary clutch has three different holes for spring tension, so it does have a level of adjustability. The grooves are caused by excessive riding slowly in high range. Unless it's very deep it won't cause a problem.
Clean them up and install a new belt.
I have no idea if the Polaris setup will fit.

Thanks for the info I only pulled the cover and briefly looked it over and felt the grooves and saw the belt was missing some teeth . The previous owner used it on a farm so I would
Imagine there was lots of slow riding going on.
