Which is the better clutch kit out there for the 500i auto? I have 2" snorkels and dynojet kit now, and 27" mudlights. Other than that the bike is stock. How does the EPI affect performance? What are the wet springs for? Does the kit dramatically lower your topend?

OK VALIN. I'M NOT SURE OF I CAN HELP YOU OR NOT. I HAVE A 06 500 MAN WITH A HIGHLIFTER CLUTCH KIT ( ITS A EPI ITEM ). I CAN FEEL MORE POWER. I CAN DO WHEELIES. SOMETHING IT WOULD NOT DO BEFORE. IT DOES A LOT BETTER IN THE MUD. I KNOW YOU HAVE A AUTO. BUT YOU CAN GO TO WWW.ERLANDSON PERFORMANCE.COM AND LOOK AT THE KITS. YOU CAN SEE WHAT KIT WOULD DO THE BETTER FOR YOU AND YOUR BIKE. I LIKE THE KIT I GOT IN MY BIKE AND I WOULD THINK ABOUT A DIFF CLUTCH KIT. I LIKE THE EPI ITEMS.

I decided to order the EPI kit. We'll see how it goes. I will install it this upcoming week sometime.

I am in the same boat. I found this:

E P I clutch springs

I have heard of using the purple springs in my 05 AC 500m. If this is correct which stinking one is it?

Anybody out there with a bike-500m with 28" tires with a cluth kit? If so how does it perform???

Also, who is the best to buy the gasket from?

Sorry for all the "?"'s

I don't think they have the ones for the wetclutch listed on the web, call them to get the right partnumber.

You can reuse the gasket, but if you want a new one you'll have to get it at the dealer.
