    i thought Vanguard 2's and Conquest's were not introduced untill '95? if you have a 20hp Kawasaki you must have an early 8x8 Conquest? or someone did a nice engine swap for you, most older machines did grind a bit during shift change but how bad is yours grinding? most shifter levers are a bit sloppy but your could be a bit worn from age and use, just use 80-90 no additives and if your brakes system is a bit loose you can simply buy new brake pads for it, its the best $30 you can spend on a used machine

    oh wow!....well then if it is a '97 Vanguard 2 thats a 6x6 with hydraulic brake upgrade, and a 20 horse Kawi liquid pulling it id say you have a very nice machine!!! now there is always a choice it all depends on your fab skills, but for just remove/replace you are stuck with genuine Argo pads/discs pads are around $30 and each disc is around $90 and you will be turning like a new machine!just be carefull removing the secondary clutch to replace left side disc!
