Default 120R: Barnett Scorpion or Bandit Sportsman clutch?

I've reading a lot on the forum about clutch slippage with various clutches used on the 120R. I'm needing to order one for my 120R setup on my 08' Street Glide, but I want to make the right choice. I've read good feedback on the Barnett Scorpion and the Bandit Sportsman. Any pro's or con's with either of these clutches on a big cube motor? I know I can install a MRC to relieve the clutch pull but I hear they make it difficult to find neutral. Any advise or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I need to pull the trigger quickly on the clutch.

I don't have much knowledge of the Bandit ,or Barnett ,but I run the Rivera Pro with the gold spring on my 124ci with the VPC on top of it.So far so good.Initially I had slippage with weaker springs & without the VPC.The clutch pull is a little heavier ,but the easy ramp was not needed in my opinion.The SE clutch is much harder!!!

I've also been considering the Aim VPC with the stock H/D clutch, but I think this would be borderline for slipping. I'm hoping to hear some good feedback on either the Scorpion or the Sportsman. This route would be cheaper than buying the VPC and trying it with the stock H/D clutch and it slip then have to buy another clutch to replace the stock one to run along with the VPC.

I've reading different threads that the clutch slippage with certain clutches run with the 120R is not necessarily noticable by the "seat of the pant" but on the dyno.

I heard the AIM VPC92 with a 380lb spring will work!

Just use the SE race clutch, you'll get used to the pull. It is adjustable to the amount of TQ the engine produces. No slippage for me
