Does that kit make it slower or faster (top speed). If slower, why?

Higher gearing (lower top end speed) to turn the tires better in the mud.

here are a few pics to compare the size differents between the gears. u can see that the clutch cage gear is bigger, the teeth go all the way to the edge of the cage. the drive gear is smaller in size which is hard to see in the pics.

So are we to see some 29.5's in your future. Do they make them for the 05 foreman?

What do those gears do? Do they give a little more torque, speed, & power?

Torque applied to the tires. Just like increaseing the gear ratio in a truck w/ large tires to comensate for the power loss and gearing increase with the increase circumferance of a larger tire.
