if you want your engagment lower then lets say your stock spring is a 140-330 rating, then find a spring with a smaller first number like a 110-330

I've seem primary spring chart and stock spring is 120-340bl/gr and if I go to a 100-275 it will engage quicker and shift quicker. Any experience or recommendation for which spring would be better? or is it trial and see what I like. or ever what weight change works well stock is 10-62.

Id like to keep the engagement close to 4k - this is a VES 700 engine, not the big block torqe monster 700 that Polaris uses back in '98 - '01. Ask anyone who has alot of experienced on the VES 700s on their recommended clutch setup. 100/275 isnt the answer youre looking for. WL.

I do alot of off trail and after storm riding- so I geared down 23/43 and thought I would want quicker engagement. I'm looking for more low end performance--don't care about top end. any suggestions for clutch set up or changes to accomplish this?!

In my opinion you want to do what WhiteLightning suggested, keep the engagement around 4K. The reason is by gearing down you helped yourself with your riding style. If you get the lower engagment you will probably return almost to a stock feel off the bottom with a lower engagement which would defeat the purpose of gearing down.
