Clutch plates replacement

Now that I have my bike and clutch all apart, I've been thinking about changing out the clutch plates just because it's apart.

All I've been able to find is OEM replacement parts or the Barnett kit.

Okay, now on to my questions.
What other options are available?
What is the best for street use?
If Barnett, Kevlar or Carbon?

Thanks gents

I went with Barnett Kevlar almost two years ago. Stirctly because of cost, they were about 1/2 price over OEM. What was interesting to me, is Barnett uses one extra steel and clutch disc in the pack. I guess that would give you a little more friction grabbing surface area.
I've been perfectly happy with the performance.

OEM's on the left. Barnett on the right.

The Barnett kit is a really good kit, much better engagement in race type conditions, but it does dirty up the oil really quickly...

LDH which plates would you run in a Yoyodyne slipper clutch?

i have always used OEM (standard clutch not on the yoyo) but the cost leaves me a little reluctant to use OEM again, Barnett seems to be good for the money.

This is my question also. I know the Yoyodyne (as I am sure all the other brands) are very critical about the stack height. With Barnett adding a couple extra disks (one steel and one fiber) this could cause problems.

I don't have an answer for that. I've ridden a few rc's with various brands of slipper clutches installed, but I never installed one in my own rc which leaves me without any real experience to pull from.

I will say though that if the yoyodyne clutch is designed to work with OEM plates then to me that is the obvious choice. They may be expensive, but they are very good products just look how long most OEM Honda clutch packs last.

ok thanks for the input, i think ill have to spring for OEM again, i suppose no use cheaping out now!

have you heard about yoyo slipper clutches having a heavily accelerated wear pattern on the clutch packs? i know these slipper clutches are primarily for track use, however with gentle street/mountain use would this still be a problem?


Got my FG322 & H0204 back from y'all, looks great!! cant wait to "finish" the bike
