What clutch would you recommend?

I have an 07 caw and it kinda bangs when I put it into 1st and clunks a bit when going into 2nd. It doesn't seem to slip at all under load. Would you guys recommend using a stock harley clutch or using an aftermarket?

Depends..is it old oil or low? Clutch and Engine share Oil.
How about the Clutch Lever fluid?

It's a Hydraulic Clutch so Knut J mentioned that because you change/fill the Clutch Lever Fluid just like the brake fluid. Your Clutch Lever Fluid might be low or old and skanky, or both
Clutch doesn't slip like you say so maybe clutch is just not engaging-disengaging all the way cause of that,
Hopefully that's all it is

I have an 06 D - If had to replace Clutch I would want to go with a HD Slipper Clutch Drop-in.

No idea how old the clutch fluid is so I will change that but the engine oil is fresh mobil 1. Is it normal to clunk when put into 1st gear or is the trans smoother than that?

Make sure to flush out the line as well. Bleed the line down at where it goes into the clutch. Cycle some through, I can almost guarantee it will be skanky as mentioned.
