Let off the throttle! Your tranny will thank you!
EPI Clutch kit is the best mod for a 500.

yeah it took me awhile to learn how to do the hole heel toe thing. Now I like alot better then the shifter on the big bear. Yeah you diffently lift completely off the throttle then press down on the heel.

welcome call to ArcticChat retired500m!! Rockerdude

When shifting yes ease off of the throttle while changing the gears. As for the clutch kit take a look at the pinned topic here in the perf/tech forum, it is a great expalantion of what the kit does and how to instal it. In short term it raises the RPM when the cent. clutch engages so that the engine is in more HP/Tourge range starting off, helping to spin larger tires.
As for using a regular style toe shifter there is a current post about that exact topic right now, take a look >>HERE<<

Thanx, I read the articles mentioned and was wondering if anyone had used a toe shifter and what they thought, also I found a post on replacing the fan fuse with a circuit breaker, anyone know where to get the part and how and where to install.......Thanx
