I dont know, I was just reading about it on HL and one guy says it only works on the rincons but it might be worth picking up another spring and giving it a try.

Oh, I guess the 450 doesnt have this bottle. So is it worth clipping.

Well I couldnt stand it anymore so I decided to be the ginny and went and cut my spring but it did it 1/4 inch longer than half and yes it does make a difference in throttle response. Very good and easy little mod.

I always heard that it didn't work on anything but the rincon.

that is what I thought....also i was thinking maybe instead of buying a clutch kit could you just put different springs in the clutch? if so that would save us a lot of money.

the dealership by where i live told a guy to cut thirteen coils out of his and it would give it more trottle response,by thirteen coils you count the top four then nine more that is where you cut it at. this is like a homemade jet kit

Thats all you get with a clutch kit is some springs. Someones making some money on that deal.

I think i will try that. I hope it works. So, cut it directly in half & put it
back in? What type of gains does this do exactly? I have had a heck
of a time finding the right size jet, & i just rejetted them last week with
the right one. I don't want to mess anything up. Should i do it? I am just
itchin' to.

All this does Carl is let the needle move up faster. By cutting the spring its taking the tension off the needle.
