The cheapest and eaiest mod that will make a noticable difference is the white spring and washer. It allows the engine to gain a few more rpm's before the belt engages which provides a little snappier take-off. You should be able to do this mod for 20 bucks or less. All of the mods you've listed are great mods that will make a difference. For trail riding the 2" lift sure makes things nice.

white spring is probably your best bet. After that you can go with a new cam, exhaust, efi controller, etc. However, the $$$$ racks up fast.

I agree with what Brian said. Your wallet will determine where it will stop. What year is your Ranger? Oh ya, welcome to PRC.

Can the white spring and washer be used on a 500 or just the XP?

Where does one find a 'white spring and spacer' and how hard are they to install? Are special tools needed? or is it best to leave this kind of job up to a shop to do?

I don't understand how that extra washer can make a difference on the engagement of the primary? Can you elaborate? Does it push in the outer primary cover so that the belt sits closer to the sheave face? That's all I can see due to it being oversized than the regular washer? I know on sleds you just tighten your secondary and adjust belt deflection just before creep for the best engagement and bottom end. Am I on the right track?

Gavin, you are correct, it just tightens up the sheaves on the belt. After buying a Bikeman clutch kit and wide belt I would recomend that over the white spring and washer. That 6X6 would really benefit from a good clutch.

Yeah, I'm planning on getting the EBS setup since it really amazed me on my dad's 500 Ranger 6x6 in it's performance on the bottom end and with the engine braking. I might just upgrade it to the white spring though as you mentioned due to the big tires even though on hard terrain so far it really seems to due fine with the extra low low range and 800 motor pumped up.... For some reason the low range on my '07 Ranger seems way lower than that on my dad's '02?
