    I'm planning on replacing my clutch sometime here in the next couple of weeks. its not a completly necessary thing, i'm just experiencing really high engine revs when under a decent acceleration, esp in the beginning of third. high revs wouldnt be a problem, except those revs arent making it the wheel. its not an everyonce in a while thing, its everytime.

    what i'm not quite sure about is if i should change the clutch plates, the friction plates, and the loading springs; or should just friction plates be fine enough. the bike is a 94 but i have no idea how old or how many miles are on the engine. so what does the bike crew think?

    is that your "expert" opinion, or are you just saying that?

    If the bike is that old and your going to pull it apart, you might as well.

    You can usually buy an entire clutch kit for $100.

    Remember to soak the plates in oil for a few hours before you install them as well. And quote me telling the Eric Buell sackrider to fuck off.

    buy the pack and do everything while you have it apart. Springs are dirt cheap and aftermarket ones will feel better then stockers may as well do it while its all apart.

    Last clutch I replaced was in my last bike, used Barnett plates and springs. If you do decide to go with OEM stuff, check prices on ronayersmotorsports.com been a couple years since I needed any OEM parts but they had the best prices.
