PM returned, I pasted here for anyone else who is curious:

I don't have too much experience with manuals but I would see if highlifter or someone else makes better plates. Also I know with the wet clutch in the newer models, the type of oil you run makes a huge diffrence. It does have to be wet clutch safe. I a not sure about your setup or if it is even a wet clutch.

On those Suzuki engines many times a simple clutch adjustment will clear up the problem. See attached page from AC service manual.

You will definately need a better clutch running 28" tires on a 400 manual.

Read a forum thread on arctichat.com from a guy running 29.5" tires on a 400 and he liked this clutch kit.

      My experience for my 98 sportsman. .keep on mind it has the smaller rear rim so my tire choices are not all that great ...
      Best...  Goodyear mud terrain. Long lasting awesome all around great tire.  No longer available of course 
      Worst. ...super swamper vampire . Too soft. Ended up on gravel a few times over a few months of winter snow riding. . Burned down from 1.5 inch paddle to 1 inch in no time. Junk. But if you are able to 100% stay in soft terrain they are insane 
      Current. . Mud lites . Pretty decent.  But I miss my Goodyears

      The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
      It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
      Are they defective ?
      They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
      Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
      Any recommendations ?
      Thank you.

      I have a 2004 Polaris Trail Boss 330 and I want to eventually fix it up if possible, but the thing is the transmission or Gearbox that allows you to shift into forward and reverse and such isn't connect to the engine at all, it isn't even bolted into the frame. Anyways the Secondary Driven clutch is missing. The ignition was busted so I switched it out and tried to hook up power to it and the lights wouldn't light up and it wouldn't try to let me start it with the electric starter. 
       
      So I bridged the connectors on the starter solenoid and it cranks the motor. I was wondering if anyone knew why the dash lights don't work or any of the buttons. I did find a cable disconnected I have a picture of maybe someone can tell me what it's supposed to be connected to. It has 3 wires going to the connect Green Purple Red. I'll enclose a picture of it and where it is connected on the wiring harness.
