I've done clutch before, but thinking about moving up to a Kevlar, or Carbon, do these "fibers" need to soak?

The difference between 10/30 and 10/40 is not enough to worry about in such a small engine.

so i should just use the 10/30 and it wont hurt me? im just makin sure im new to all this atv stuff if thats the case i can put the fibers to soak and start tomoro or i can get the right oil tomoro?

does it have to soak for 24 hrs? iv read a bunch of different things about that but id rather do it the safe way and let it soak for 24 hrs

and what kind of coolant should i buy? i have prestone 50/50 but i read somwhere on here that it wasnt the best?

Question clutch questions

Hay my clutch has just started slipping like crazy so i pulled the clutch cover off and got it all in bits, its a 2009 ltz 400.

is it normal to have 8 clutch fiber rings plus the anti chatter fiber ring making it 9?

all the disks dont seem to be that worn, the anti chatter ring looks brand new but al the other disks have about 0.5 mm of fiber left

i tried spacing the springs to make the clutch lock in harder when ingaged but it just doesnt ingage any further and slips, is that because all the fibers are to worn?

last thing, with the anti chatter ring is there ment to be two rings that go the center of it? one is flat and the other kind of angled to spring the ring.
would it be better when i get my new clutch to chuck the best old normal fiber ring in and not run the chatter?

cheers for any help i can get.
