Glad you came back! I have the same machine, and it does take awhile to get used to the throttle! They is a cheap fix, order the throttle spring for a 2009 650XT, it is by far lighter. The turf saver has caused many negative write ups, but some like it, so some don't. I did swap my Turf Saver out at the 7,500 mile mark, but I pulled it for snow plow duty. I'm planning on putting it back in shortly! One of the things to watch for is using the friction modifier gear lube by Arctic Cat (kinda like the fish oil for ford posi units!), Amsoil has a gear lube that is compatable, but I never took the chance! I replace my gear lube 2-3 times a year with the Turf Saver, and IMO it has extended its life.
