Default HD spring

I traded my BU HD spring for a 96 stock spring and it wont even push my belt back out of the clutch... So, I need to decide to either go with a new CCP spring or my BU spring... I want the best out of the 2. I took the BU one off because when I installed my new motor, it made the cart have a low gear and a really low gear. And sometimes it wouldn't come up from the lowest gear. I was afraid i would over rev it before it shifted up or when it shifted down goin down hills.... What should I do?? Thanks - Austin

Default Re: HD spring

my question is how slow were you with the Heavy Duty spring? 20mph, 15mph tops? I dont care if I hit 30mph, I am more concerned with pulling power.

the stock spring on my cart is very weak. granted I havent preloaded it.

Tom at CPP suggested using the stock rear spring when I last talked to him.

I am thinking of calling Don at Plowman as he has 5 different springs in stock for the rear.

The other thought is to order a bunch of secondary springs from Dennis Kirk for snowmobiles and just experiment. page 220 in the snowmobile catalog. springs are $16.69 each white low 63lb #38-0414 to to maroon 102lbs
#38-1125

However call Don who has done this before sounds like the best method

I went back to the stock spring and preloaded it to "B2". I have lots of low
end torque and can run 40 mph. Before you buy any spring, load your stock
one and try it. Try some different setting. Just my opinion.

It adds tension to the spring, that will make it stiffer.

Are you putting shims on one side of the spring to do this? or what?
somebody down loaded the clutch on my dad's CC, but I never knew exactly what they did.
