    2012 500 to 800r primary swap.................

    My wife has found mud ( I know ....good but bad...lol), so thinking of putting my stock 800r primary clutch on my wifes 500 and giving her the 28 silverbacks. I know it is weighted and sprung heavier, so thinking this would be a better option than clutching hers. Also if needed can always go up to Dalton clutch kit if needed. Does anybody know if my thinking is right or am I on my own on this???

    Also any problems with the 28s on the gen 1 frame??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    Spacers or offset rims and tires will be fine as far as clutching maybe pm daveb he seems pretty knowledgeable in that area

    The 800 clutch is weighted waaaay too heavy for the 500. If there is nothing wrong with the sttock clutch, put a Dalton clutch kit in it...set it up for big tires. The Backs will work, but will make it harder for her to steer and kill power...I personally like a light mud tire like a Zilla or a Mudbug.

    Edit: 28's will be tight on the Gen1 500 (and 400) due to their slightly different front end from the 650/800....the tire will get real tight in the front inner fender under compression when turning. I had 27's on my wifes 400 and they fit good. (if you have the 28' mounted already, test fit 'em).

    Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
