Wondering if the benefits are as noticeable on the prowler as they claim they are on the H1 atv?

You remove the slide/diaphram from carb and drill an 1/8 hole in the the offcenter hole already there. It's supposed to give much better throttle response and is highly recommended amongst the atvers. heres a pic:

I did the slide mod to my 650 Prowler when I had it. I noticed a difference. Not a big difference, but a difference. It was pretty easy, so I don't see how you could go wrong.

Did you clip the spring as well?

If so how many coils?

Thanks

I thought clipping the coils was to make the throttle easier to push (thumb). The pedal on mine is already a little too jumpy so I'm leaving the coils alone.
