05 F7 clutch engagement question

Seems to me like the clutch engagement on my 05' F7 is a bit too high, I'm not sure as to what it should be but I would like it to engage sooner, where should I start looking to change it ? the driven spring ? or drive clutch weights ? and how will this affect it ?

Not a clutch expert but you should post what you have in your sled as a baseline. Factory parts are as follows so you can check. Drive clutch spring Yellow/White. Cam arms are 75 grams. Driven clutch spring is Green. Torque bracket is 44/40 degree. Here's a link to 2005 drive specs. It tells you engagement rpm's and max rpm's for all models.

Is there a manual or something that tells of the changes the different driven clutch spring settings have ? I have the owners manual but it doesn't have that info. I checked out a different Arctic Cat service manual from a 1994 sled I have and it doesn't have that type of info either. Where can I get this info ?
