As long as your current ring gear works, teeth aren't worn or damaged, and years match, use it, but call Barnett tech (not sales), and get everything perfect and matching with what you have.
It will be a killer set up for your motor package.

I have also seen them be very intolerant to a slipping clutch. Steel plates are thin and loose their temper pretty quick.


I like the feel of the over center on a diaphragm clutch. For street bikes I like the Primo Pro Clutch. Big builds that peak tq around 4500. Adding their hat is an option.
My Indy wrote ( pro clutch ) on the parts list. I'm pretty sure this is the one he is talking about.

Billet basket is on the way

Any recommendations on what springs or combo of springs to start with?

I'm going to go ahead and apologize to cdonis for hijacking his thread, sorry man.

I just installed an AIM VP84LT today. Stock spring and plates. This thing is friggin awesome!!! I ended up getting a much lighter clutch pull, and lock up seems to be solid. I love it!

No. I gave my recommendation for that. Bandit. But, the AIM product was mentioned several time, throughout this thread. I just thought I'd give my experience with AIM's little brother, the 84. Which is good for 130HP, with the stock spring and plates. It's big brother, the 95, is stronger, and will take 150. But, nice of you to fact check me...

What do you mean "fact check"?

From what I've seen the 84 does better as you can still pull the clutch in at high Rs.
