I'm a casual rider, occasional ego acceleration, occasional wheelie. I don't race. I just enjoy the ride. What brand and what type of clutch should I go with? I want it to be long lasting. I've seen all kinds of stuff, carbon fiber, kevlar, yada yada..... I don't want to spend an arm and a leg either. Any suggestions?

Stick with OEM.
Why are you replacing yours?

I'm replacing it because it's slipping, the bike has 27,000 miles on it. When I bought it, it was a stunt bike so it was treated like ****. After replacing the frame, rims, forks, shock, fairings, rear sub frame and swingarm it rides like a brand new bike. All besides the clutch. It slips when I hammer it. I assume it's never been changed.

I changed my clutch once only to find that it was the cable. It was only binding at the point of engagement upon release. The rest of the lever travel was smooth and easy. It fooled me. I beat my clutch at the strip so I put in a used one, it was cheap and came with all the parts. If it ever craps out I'll put the original one back in.

That's because it pretty much *IS* a new bike :rotfl:

:plus1: for going with another OEM clutch.
