First and foremost...if you're looking for the "How To", it's in the F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) section of the forum.

I've seen several people post lately who are having problems shortly after installing a new clutch kit with springs. So, I want this topic to address any "FIXES" for common issues, or any issues that you may have noticed when installing this kit.

I would prefer if this is only a FACT area (that means no questions asked). If you have questions, please reference this thread, but ask the questions outside of it so that others do not have to look through a bunch of posts to find the facts.


With new clutch kits, the springs are usually stiffer. This will most likely cause the clutch arm (on the case of the motor) to push outward (extend) more than normal. If you have an aftermarket billet case-saver, this could interfere with the movement of the clutch arm, causing the engagement/disengagement of the clutch to be sporadic.

NormalZ had a fix for this problem when he encountered it. He simply cut a notch out of the case saver to allow the clutch arm to fully extend.

There were pics and a post (I'm almost certain) of this mod...if/when I find them, I'll post them here with a reference to the thread.

If this tip helps anyone, thank NormalZ!

Here's the notch in the case saver that Crazie was talking about (inside the green circle):
