Clutch for 2006 Honda TRX250EX?
I have the 2006 Honda TRX250EX which is not regular shifting. It can be shifted by just pushing the shifter, or by pulling the clutch handle on top and shifting and releasing the handle. (I think its called the sports clutch)
However, For some time now I think its called slipping; For example, on the 1st gear it doesn't have all the power/torque it used to have. On 2nd gear as well.
I had fixed this issue temporarily by pulling the clutch cable and adjusting it near the engine. after adjusting it the 1st gear would have all the power it had and also 2nd would be quicker. But after a couple days of use the problem would return. My question is; is this the right thing to change? Using this clutch kit?
Thanks in advanced for anyone's response.

If you are experiencing your clutch slipping (like you are describing) you will at a minimum want to replace the friction plates, which is this particular kit. I suggest removing the clutch components see if the the steel plates need to be replaced as well. Typically when the clutch is slipping as bad as your case, the steel and friction plates will need to be replaced. If you can see any bluing from excessive heat or warp on the steel plates, then replacing the complete set would be ideal.
