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.

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      I need some help y’all, I bought a 450r, 2005 and I was riding it and unfortunately got stuck, I had no clutch control at all, I put it in gear and release the clutch, it doesn’t go anywhere, I select through all gears and it won’t move, i can rev it out, I just bought a clutch kit, but I am sorta new to this whole scene of race quads, I always had a 4x4, so any help will be much appreciated thanks.

      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.
