Barnett clutch vs. stock?
This is my first post on this site. I have an '03 954 and my stock clutch just started slipping. I've only done a few drag strip passes (mid 11s, still sorting out the launch) and was actually practicing some launches when the clutch started to slip with a little over 5K on the odo. I don't know what sort of life the clutch had with the previous owner, as I bought the bike with 4K on it. I was about to order the Barnett carbon fiber kit until I searched these archives and found most folks recommended stock plates/discs with the Barnett springs. Has anyone used this setup recently? I want to put in something that's going to last.
On my F4, I changed to a Barnett Kevlar clutch at approx. 10K miles when that started to slip. On that bike, the stock clutch held up to numerous passes at the track but I never raced with the Barnett setup. I've put 1K miles on the F4 since the clutch change last year and it feels great on the street.
Any replies are appreciated!
