    What are your aftermarket Clutch Preferences and why?



    The EBC clutch kit "Dirt Racer" friction plates with springs.



    VS



    The Barnett Kit, Friction Plates and Springs.



    Whats your personal experience with either kit, or any tips tricks I should know when rebuilding?



    I am deciding which kit to buy for my build up...



    I've only had poor results with the stock set up after power enhancements...... Whats the best set up?!?!



    Thanks for any info guys!

    This post has potential value. To keep everything connected, please remind us what mods you did to your bike to warrant a beefier clutch. With this, we have a known problem and some solutions to consider. My bike is stock, and I am happy with my stock clutch. Whats going on with your bike. Thanks. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    Hey Gerry-Good Point.



    HEre are the mods I did to my bike before the tear down:



    Bigger Main Jet 130

    Shimmed the needle 4 shims

    FMF powercore

    14-47 Sprocket



    AFter these modifications the stock clutch assembly would continually slip no matter what, even under moderate acceleration. I even put in brand new OEM friction plates and still had the same problem. I experimented with different oil weights to no avail. So now that I am building up the TW, this time with a WEB cam and a K&N air filter I'm going to be making a little more power. I figured I'd like to get the best available clutch set up this time around and see what other TW aficionado thoughts are on the matter...

    Well Ronny put the TTR clutch in his tw on steroids... It has 6 plates instead of 5 or something. I'd imagine they make aftermarket springs/plates for the TTR bikes, so the ultimate TW clutch would probably be TTR setup with aftermarket goodies?

    I used barnett clutch and springs (They make it hard to find neutral)with the TW 226 build and they slipped so I added a shim to each spring and that has worked great for years.



    With the TW 250 build I used the stock TTR clutch (all used plates) with shims under the springs and it works fine.



    Save the money and add a shim under the springs and forget about it.



    Just a thought

    Ok cool..



    So perhaps I can go with one or the other clutch kits and just add a shim in additi0on to the aftermarket springs... Should be solid then.



    Is there a specific shim amount you would recommend?

    Put the shim/washer in first then the spring. I may have some extra shims if you need them.
