It's really rewarding when you tackle something you have not done before and it works. I always have to double and triple check things when I try a project above my skill level. Patience pays off. Well done Bud !!

Yeah it was definitely a learning experience.
Thanks

BTW funny how you mention double/triple checking things as I came close to forgetting to put the fuel line from the petcock to the carb...

I put in the Barnett kevlar fibers a while back and I'm gonna see if that works
If it doesn't I'll get something else

I used my stock clutch for a while, along with a stronger Barnett clutch spring, but recently changed the clutch plates for a Barnett plus 1 kevlar pack. I reckon you'll need a slightly stronger spring - and a stronger hand/wrist!

To solve that I recently bought and fitted an AMP Research Power Assist device, although haven't ridden with it yet. I tried one of the cheap ez-pull devices, but wasn't happy, as it reduced clutch lift and was impossible to adjust just right. Unfortunately AMP has been bought out and dropped all bike stuff now, so the device may be difficult to find, if any are left. I confess I bought two, one as back-up!

If what I have doesn't work I'm gonna get a Scorpion clutch pack and run that.

Not so much the plates are the problem ...
What we see a lot w/ the stock Evo clutch's when adding HP ....and depending on how much you Bang on it ...is that the plates are so thin and cause indentations in the stock aluminum hub ...and that makes them hard to slide which causes hard shifting and then adjustments don't help much anymore either ...




this is what we see a lot with the stock clutch hubs



this is a good upgrade...may not be the best but for the price ...works well ...steel hub and wider plates ...

Finally got Tina out for a short 125 mile ride.
DAMN IT WAS COLD!!!!!!!!!!

She has more power but nothing earth shaking about it.
Just really good street power...just what she needed.

Hit it a bit in second gear and the rear wheel broke free really easy.

Stock clutch with barnett fibers is working well so far.

Got about 32 mpg for the ride.
