Gas Pedal hard to push

Don't know if there is already a thread on this but here goes. My gas pedal is hard to push and has been since day one. Are they all like this? Its hard to push so you take off like a rocket and then let off and almost stop and again and again, thank god for those head beaters behind your head. I have gotten use to it but the wife and other drivers can't even drive the thing. I have read other places about this but no fix. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and a cure?

They have different springs on the pedal available, mine was very stiff (2009 700XTX), I ordered one off of the 2009 650XT. Big difference! I noticed it as soon as I drove Bryans!

I can believe that, but if you have luck like I did on an exhaust header you'll get a rejection email saying sorry we don't make those anymore.

Let us know how it worked. Seems later models went with the stiffer spring.
