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.
1990 - 1997 BIG TWIN 1991 & UP SPORTSTER & BUELL KIT CONSISTS OF 9 FRICTION PLATES AND 8 STEELS
This kit includes a 15% stronger than stock diaphragm spring. 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 Lubricants or any HD petroleum based, nonsynthetic, 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. 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 and have small springs inside. With this kit, you will NOT reuse this plate. With the removal of the thick plate, this kit accommodates more 1 friction and 1 more steel, yet retains OEM stack height. As for the Buell 2003 and Later XB9R, you will have 1 odd friction plate with a spring dampener and a seat spring dampener that will fit inside the very first friction plate. Remove all those pieces as you will NOT use them with this kit. As this kit is an extra plate kit, you must use all 9 frictions and 8 steels along with the matched diaphragm spring for optimum performance. These are just some helpful tips. For further technical assistance refer to your service manual.
