Remember don't hit buy it now. Hit add to cart, then go to checkout, enter the coupon to see your price. Then finalize the deal if you want to get it. I just paid 251.00 free shipping. YMMV
Discount code didn't work for me. And yes, I first added it to cart, then went to checkout.

Just call or email them at Eastern Performance. When I did, they discounted mine to 251 shipped.

Just got mine in the mail today. Dealer is going to install next week. Awesome. Can't wait to have my clutch as it should be. It may cost me a few more bucks, but from the sounds of it, totally worth it. Thanks for all who have given feedback on the product.

Before I saw this post, earlier today I did call them and after initially saying the part was $280.00, I asked for a discount and he went down to $254.75. Don't know how he came up with that odd amount, but I ordered it. Looks like it shipped out today.

Just wonder how many locations on the exhaust system will I have to loosen to be able to remove the trans cover to install the slave cylinder?
Anyone who has done it, what did you loosen/remove? Thanks

Thanks. Boy, lots of unnecesary work involved because the motor company was to stupid to realize the new M8 exhaust won't allow the trans cover to be removed without loosening the exhaust first. No doubt some nerd at the motor company designed it on a Cad-Cam and just sent the design to the exhaust manufacturer without ever thinking of making it difficult for someone who would like to bleed the clutch fluid once in a while.
I also heard a tech at the dealer mention it.

no joke...this thing is as great as everyone says. I rode with it today...the difference is amazing. I expected the less pull and to have a better friction zone and both are there. what I didn't expect was it shifting so much better and smoother. yes the bike should have came this way!

Mine came in from eastern. Figures I'd see this approach to save 10% too late.

Anyway, I will install next weekend...thanks to everyone who has provided feedback on the product.
I have a question, is there anything else required? Extra clutch plate? Other spring?

The service manager at my local HD told me even with the AIM the springs in clutch assembly are still behaving the same. Thanks

Not sure what you mean about the springs are acting the same.
Nothing else is needed (except brake fluid). Its a pretty simple install. I would lay some trash bags plastic or at least a blanket on the tank when refilling the clutch master cylinder.

If your local HD guy means it's no better than stock he has no idea what he's talking about. Thing is leaps above defective HD crap. You will love it. I have not seen one bad review of it. I did a lit of searching b4 I installed mine.
Good luck!
