I've heard with the Mule treatment you can get away with some crazy tall gearing.

Feathering the clutch seems to be pretty normal on the 300 and comes naturally after riding it awhile, I like the engagement, pretty linear and it's like a temporary instant downshift to pop you over an obsticle. I got a brand new autoclutch sitting on the bench, it works so well right now I'm hesatant to swap it in.
