Clutch Kit or just Springs

I am looking to get more out of my 2001 KVF 400 4x4.
Do I go with a clutch kit or do I go with new springs, what ones would you suggest?
Going to drop in a jet kit and air filter. The tires have been upgraded to slightly little more aggressive ones.

just springs...

Dalton - Blue "Primary" little more than stock...
Stock - "Secondary"

But my bike is a 08 Brute, so not sure if your stock secondary is as strong..

What size tires are you running??

You "could" run the maroon but IMO I'd run Daltons new dark green.

I was running maroon and it was my favorite but since trying the dark green it has replaced it as my favorite.

I highly recommend to anyone who thinks they really like the maroon, they need to try the dark green. It's all the maroon was and more, and still no stall.

Lay on the ground with hands an feet spread wide because you're under arrest!

Actually I didn't notice the 400 in your signature, and don't really know that answer.

hey flipper. ive been running the maroon spring for a few months now and like it very well. it does have just a little more stall than the stock spring but im getting used to it. does the dark green have any more stall at all than the maroon? i mainly ride my quad on the trails and im always looking for a way to make it run better. is there a noticeable difference in the two springs? thanks.
