Default G1 clutch spring

I was wondering what would be the best spring to use in my secondary clutch, not interested in speed as my cart will stay stock for now. I heard of a couple of different types but I am probably trying to get more torque than speed any advise would be great. Thanks guys.

I found a 3/8" spacer behind the spring made a big improvement. From what I have read most of the aftermarket springs are to stiff for the G1 and cause the clutch to not upshift.
A 1/4 spacer may even be all you want as well.
There is a grease fitting for the secondary moving sheave, make sure it has some lube in it so things are not sticking.

I used Plowman's red spring. Don't get the white spring, I tried it, too stiff, works terrible. I am very happy with the red spring.
