I recently put a new clutch(barnett I know barnett sucks for dragracing) in my 891100. It was fine for the 1st couple races(10 runs or so) but now its slipping again. Some one told me that I broke it in to hard(by draggin it) and need to break it in easy with regular street riding. Is this true? Is my new clutch shot now or can it be adjusted?

thanks

I hope Barnett does not suck too bad, thats what I have too. So far mine is fine. Only a few drag races so far. If Barnett does suck bad, what is good?

I had the same problem w/ barrnett cluches one day at the track and there wasted.
I would only use suzuki plates.
If you want to save the barnett glass bead your steels and measure your fibers for thicknes.
The suzuki manuel will tell you how tick they should be. You may only need to relpace a few.
you should use atleast one h/d spring. or switch to a lock up clutch.

Agree on using OEM clutch stuff, but for the near term that's good advice to check the stack height... some of my Bandit kindred have tried running the Barnett frictions and soon needed to put in an extra steel to get the clamping force up into a usable range.

for dragracing there is only one alternative and that's oem...we have them $169.99 plus shipping if you need them...there is on other alternative that is pretty good and they are "factory" clutches...we also carry those for the rider/racer...they seem to be holding up pretty good in the bikes that we have installed them in...they retail for $139.99 plus shipping...like i stated earlier, these clutches and the barnett springs have been working real damn good for the street racers in this area...so if you really don't want to fork out for the oem stuff; this is a real good substitute...
