You should be fine with stock springs. Dewayne sells his clutch kits with or without the springs.

I've always put those springs back in when I've used his clutches, but honestly not sure if they are needed. I always put them in because that is what is shown in the manual. I'm sure Dwyane at Cycle Concepts could answer that question for sure though.

thanks for the input i will just give him a call. I gotta tear it back down any way... Thought it would be alright to "man" it out and run his stiffer springs with my track bike. That was a bad idea... After the day was done i dont think i could squeeze with any force in my left hand lol.

Oh k i would use the rings with his clutch. His springs are stiff as fk but there good to have to prevent clutch slipage.

Lol yea his stiffer springs are pretty nasty but you'll eventually get used to them. I think I only have 3 though and 3 of the brocks HD ones. I rode my buddies gen 4 with stock springs last summer and at first thought something was wrong with his clutch since the clutch lever was sooooooo easy to pull in.
