Motorcycle clutch kits come with Kevlar friction plates and a starburst groove pattern for maximum heat dissipation and oil circulation. A result of years of development and testing these V Twin motorcycle clutch kits offer superior performance to get the power to the ground. All of the clutch plates are manufactured from high tempered American steel and each kit comes complete with a pre-set clutch pack height (stock spec) for easy installation.

Plates should be pre-soaked in the same fluid you will be using in the bike for about 10-15 minutes prior to installation. The type of fluids we recommend are Primary Lubricant or any HD petroleum based, non-synthetic, primary oil, as light weight as possible. THE USE OF SYNTHETICS IS NOT RECOMMENDED AS THEY TEND TO CAUSE SLIPPAGE. Start with a friction plate and end with a friction plate. On 1990-1997 Big Twins and 1991-present Sportsters will have a double riveted steel plate which will look like 2 steel plates with rivets all the way around with small springs inside. YOU WILL REUSE THIS PLATE. Make sure all rivets are secure and are not loose, or replace with OEM part. If after install the new clutch slips at higher RPM, diaphragm spring should be replaced. These are just some helpful tips. For further technical assistance refer to your service manual.
