Need advice on what to do next!

I have a 95 Kodiak 400 4x4, has hi and low range. Just put a new weisco piston in with tusk top end gasket kit. I have 27" titan atv589 9" front 11" rear on stock rims. Turns the tires awesome im low range in ANYTHING, turns them well in high range also. Top end is 45ish on speedo and 49 on GPS. Clutch is slipping a bit in 5th, so I ordered a tusk HD clutch kit with the HD Springs. Here is my delima, should I do any other clutch mods when I replace my clutch? What else can I do? I need more top end honestly, my girl has an 2010 420 rancher with 25" tires and she can do circles around me. She cruises about 45 and at that speed my machine is revving way higher than I would like to hold for a long run. I have read that the extra 2" on the tires plus the weight are taking almost 8mph off my top end. I think possibly my clutch is slightly slipping the whole time too. I have a setbof 25s im going to put on and try also, but I guess the point of my rambling is what else can I do as far as clutch mods to net me a noticeable gain in performance. Soon is coming a custom muffler and then gonna jet my carb too.

    From what I have found in my experience. A clutch kit in a foot shift hinders more then helps. It causes to much slippage at low speeds and wears the starter clutch out faster. I did not like the one in my ATV and returned it back to stock. They may be good for racing but not so much on a trail bike.
    If you are replacing the secondary clutches it is a perfect time to replace the starter clutch, they wear out and will slip with age. A new one will make the bike feel new again!
