Clutch Recommendations

Looks like the clutch is going and looking around found big differences in price. Is Kevlar necessary for our cruiser. Seems like sport bikes or racers need these.
Any recommendations?

It kind of depends on how you ride. Lol its a little bit like an engine oil thread, there are a lot of opinions on the matter. Long story short, the stock setup is perfectly fine unless you are going to race or something lol. I'd recommend whatever you go with that you drill the clutch basket to avoid that coffee grinder sound

I installed the EBC Kevlar clutch plates and spring kit.

The bike might not be a "sport bike" but many, including me .... treat it like one.

But any new one is still better than an old one that ain't working....

I used EBC standard plates from denniskirk.com https://www.denniskirk.com/ebc/stand...prd/381852.sku

and reused the original springs, which checked out fine. I don't believe in using stiffer springs, they not only make the clutch harder to pull in, but they also put more wear on all the clutch release parts, and aren't necessary. I replaced my friction plates at around 64,000 miles because they were warped.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
