I have the spring rates all sorted out.


I have 4 different zero stall springs. (higher rate are still very low stall due to the engagment # and all 2.5-2.6 inches tall)

they will be VFJ#1 to VFJ#4 And are for use for Teryx and ATV alike

Spring rates are measured exactly at 2.50/1.25 of an inch compressed heights.

VFJ#1 is 10/170 Low stall, Mid-high rate
VFJ#2 is 10/220 Low stall, High RPM
VFJ#3 is 20/250 Low stall, Very High rpm
VFJ#4 is 30/265 Low-Mid stall, Super High RPM

Next I have the higher stall and Atv oriented springs.

VFJ #5 is 55/160 High stall, mid RPM
VFJ#6 is 25/175 Medium stall, mid-high rpm
VFJ #7 is 70/260 High stall, Super High RPM



All these measurments are EXACT. I'll post pics of them when I color code them over the weekend

John

John, can you add the color code to your list of springs on the first post? I honestly forgot what I have...if you remember don't post it here though :lol:.

I think he will suggest the #4. I have that one an like it so far. I believe that is the one made for the V's.

That's very close to what I have now. I just can't help but think more secondary would help hold the RPM in the sand and on hills. I know in the sleds, we put as much secondary as we can and it makes a big difference in hill climbing. Helps the clutch to back shift. I think I might try one I have a few here in stock, I'm gonna throw a 138 / 248 in it see what it does in my test strip.

You can screw around with springs until you are blue in the face. the WEIGHTS are where your performance lies.

I would recomend my #4 Sec for your situation. steeper hills, the #1 sec

run that with the #7 pri and my adjustable weights at 50 grams and you got what you were looking for.

springs

Hey John, I've been reading alot about clutch springs and I'm still confused. So I turn to you for a purchase.I have a stock 05 brute 750,stock Kawi clutch springs,14" ITP wheels w/26" Kenda Bounty Hunters,stock exhaust,3" intake snorkle - rejetted,2" cvt snorkle.I mostly trail ride,creek ride,and minor mud holes.I would like to add a little pep to this bike.This bike is not easy to pull wheelies,unless I lean out the carbs. Will your clutch springs help,and which ones? As I will be getting a new belt soon too,so I may need shims also. Thanks,Dennis

VF John, question for you? I'm a first time owner of the BruteForce 750i, I did my share of research on the 4x4's and went with this beast, very happy with it, but need a little more unff, I definetly aint gonna drag on it, just do a lot of Mudd/ Swamp riding down here in Miami with my buddies. what clutch kit would you recommend for me? So far all i have done to my bike was go with 12' rims with 28" Zillas, 2 inch extreme lift and HL springs and snorkled it. Dynatek CDI coming soon with K&N filter, and slip-on exhaust HMF. oh forgot to mention it's a 2011 model efi.

It can't be. I have a #6 (the only primary spring I have bought from VFJ) and it has a yellow and a white stripe on it.
