Default Clutch recommendations for a 124

Looks like a 124 will be in the near future. It will be the hot set up kit , 58 mm tb, oil cooler, and clutch, and my bobcat pipe. I know the pipe will probably cost me some hp/tq, but I'm not worried I'm not willing to spend the dough on a pipe.There are probably a few clutches I could use, and am looking for best bang for the buck on the clutch.

bandit,wouldnt even think of any other.we do A LOT of 124" builds and ONLY use bandits.i would also recommend having your engine built to your riding style instead of a hot set up kit.

If looking for a cost alternative to a Bandit(they are very good, link to them from our site), take a look at the AIM95's combined with a Barnett spring.
Witnessed them holding 150/150 many times.

I guess I have the same question, I have seen the Bandit highly recommended on this and other forums but not a lot of info on the Scorpion. It would be nice to hear from someone who has used both. I have a Scorpion sitting in the box I was going to use on my build but if there is a good reason to go with the Bandit I will

What build, how much power?
You have a full Scorpion or just the stack and pressure plate?
Lock up?
I've run them all, and Bandit is bad ***, but as Scott says, there are other less expensive options, especially if you aren't making a ton of HP.
Also what bike? Baggers and their load might use a different set up than say a Dyna or FXR.

Yep, The AIM and a little heavier Spring is the most cost effective, with the least PMS... If you need to replace the Stock Plates for some reason? The Alto Carbonite Kit works very well, adds grip, and is le$$ than OE...

These Components work very well with the Factory Recommended Fluids / Amounts...

AIM & Alto carry Lifetime Guarantees...

Scorpion lock up, no basket p/n 608-30-23100

107 w/ T-Man .625 cams, ported CVO heads, 58mm TB, hoping to be in the 120/120 range

Thanks everyone, I'll take a look at all the setups you mentioned. Bike it's going in is a softail breakout. I ride solo. No bags or extras. I was looking at this aim unit and can add the barrnet spring.
