Greetings - I am wondering a few things about clutches and trying to help out my customers... If any member can help with answers that would be very cool..:D

2006D

1- can an extra clutch disc be added to the stock basket. meaning can you get an OEM friction and OEM steel and add it inside? would I even want to do this?

2- is the Barnett extra plate kit worth the money? and does it work better than OEM?

3- is there a reason I would not want to add a slipper clutch instead of the barnett extra plate kit?

4- if you were racing your 2006D and you needed clutches and you had a 50 shot of nitrous.... what clutches would you run????

I had a stock clutch in '04, burned it up slowly

replaced with a batrnett extra plate kit in kevlar, burned it up quickly

replaced with a slipper and started spraying nitrous, burned it up slowly

replaced it with a slipper clutch repack kit... less than 300 miles ago


so I could have tried the carbon fiber extra plate kit from barnett but never pulled the trigger, it would be a better material than the stock or kevlar for racers, but for me a slipper is a great clutch, they sorta ramp up and grab even more with rpm's so I'm sold on the slipper

I'm now building 4th different cluch and I would say:
1. No space
2. Better yes, but not worth of money and labor.
3. No, slipper is confortable to use and stands 10..20Nm more torque (same oil).
4. No idea

The Barnett was definately a little worse to be stuck in a traffic jam with and you can't always find neutral too easy, lasted about a year on the turbo bike.

Slipper is now 3 years old and still going.

unfortunatley- the dang thing keeps doing burnouts- not me the bike.

Yeah, I slowed down but the bike keeps marking it's territory :D.

Those rear tires keep wearing out in the center for some reason.
Really tho- a 300 rear with the turbo and that clutch has done well.
