Looking to buy a clutch kit for my 07 foreman 500. I went to EPIs website and it says for use with stock motor and exhaust. I have hmf exhaust, jet kit, and K&N filter ready to be installed. I have 26 inch mud lites already on it. Do I need a different kit or will this one still work? Where does everyone order from?

when you install the clutch kit you sould use a new gasket. an OEM replacement gasket works the best supposedly the HL one leaks.

i used the highlifter gasket and it worked just fine, although i did happen to break a bolt when i was putting the cover back on then i happened to break another one after i took the cover off to try and drill out that bolt, when i went to put the cover on after i half ass doctored that one up another broke when putting the cover on again

but i havent had any leaking so far

What would be a really cool clutch kit would be to figure out a way to install the Honda "Sport Clutch" on a Foreman!

I just bought my wife an 07 TRX250EX with the Sport clutch and it is VERY COOL. You can use it like our automatic clutches, or use the clutch lever like a normal manual clutch.

With that you could rev up the engine to whatever RPMs you wanted before engaging the clutch.... or use it like it normally is.

I've been staring at the 2 different parts illustrations trying to figure out a way...

So are you running with three broke bolts and no leak? What a TANK!

2 broke bolts...the first one that broke is the one rite underneith where the front driveshaft comes out so i did the best i could to drill it out and then i ended up putting jbweld on it and sanding that down smooth and putting gasket on and then the casing on then i put silicon around it for extra measures, no leaks so far but doesnt mean it wont happen...the second bolt that i broke was on the top of the motor towards the rite side, i didnt even remove the bolt that was still in the motor, i just stuck the case on it and siliconed the entire casing where it connects up...and put something in the end of the holes on the casing to keep crap out of it

u got the tank part rite
