Default Stock Clutch Disks Or Kevlar??

I am doing the 40,000 mile checkup on my 2000 FLH and was looking to replace the clutch disks and most likely the steel plates. Has anyone gone with the Kevlar disks over the stock? I found a complete Kevlar Kit with newsteels from Milwaukee Twins for about $98 plus shipping. If I go with the non-Kevlar is there a recommended setup to go with over the factory disks?? I notice in my manual the most inner disk is thinner than the others, yet looking at some of the aftermarket kits, all the disks look the same.

My 96 has a bit different package than yours, but the wife's 01 is the same. The aftermarket kits, 90-97 Evo kevlar and others offer steel double plate eliminator kits, more friction and single steel plates. The 98-06 pack seems to have moved a chatter spring and contact plate to the inner most part of the package. The aftermarket kits may replace them as well with uniform friction and steel plates. Your pressure plate is attached diferently and your basketand shell are the improvement over the90-97.

Different than your model, here's the thread on the 96 clutch pack.

I went with the same Kevlar you are looking at I believe, except for model differences.

I have a Barnett Kevlar clutch in my Springer, I love it. Well worth the extra bucks. JMHO, YMMV, etc.
