Rhino 660 clutching?

I have a Rhino 660 running on 28" MTS's. It runs pretty well in the mud and snow but I would like more low end out of it. I am also concerned that she is going to be a dog when plowing snow.

Is there a clutching solution that is less expense that purchasing a full kit? Can I mix/match OEM parts possibly? I have seen mention of using a white spring with Kodiak weights. Any recommendations for this specific application?

I know nothing about their drive train, but what about swapping out sprockets?

Rhino has no sprockets. The white secondary spring works great to keep the belt from slipping. The 4 kodiak weights, cant recall the measurement of them off the top of my head, will give your power back by keeping the belt on the primary pulley for the most power. I would get a machine washer and shim the primary to help "start off in a lower gear". By shimming the primary you will let the belt start off deeper in teh primary which will essentially give it a lower gear
