SP2 Clutch Installation

Happy holidays fellas. It is the day before christmas eve and I am planning on replacing my clutch as it is badly worn with my barnett kevlar clutch I just got as an early christmas present from my wife. I know how to tear apart the clutch and remove everything but my question is how do I know what order the plates go in, where exactly they fall, and how to offset them. if anyone has a step by step direction or a write up on this, let me know. I saw something on a slipper clutch when I was searching but I dont know if that is the same installation process. Your thoughts and help much appreciated.

Don't forget the outermost plate fits into the shallow slots, as opposed to the remaining plates.

You should've asked Barnett the order they wanted for best operational life span. So how did it turn out?

PolarBear- really depends on the rider, however the OEM RC clutch is a great piece, and has good longevity. I pulled mine out at 7k and it had zero wear on any of the plates. I put new Honda plates in a slipper clutch, and 3k later still zero wear- and that's from all track. riding.. Then Ive seen a clutch on a 4 or 5k bike and it was all worn out.. So stay off the clutch and it'll last, slip it a lot, do burn outs and you'll burn it up. I push bikes to their limits, but .i don't abuse my equipment, and I never have clutch issues. So ride it hard, but like its supposed to be, not like u stole it!

03 RC-a few nicnacs.
