Anyone have experience with Walker Clutch Kits?

I'll be doing the clutch basket mod (drilling holes to prevent the 'grabby' clutch when cold), and figured I would refresh my entire clutch setup since I'll be in there.

Does anyone have experience with Walker Complete Clutch Kits? They come out of the UK, but look to be made in NZ.

Cheers.

Never heard of them. Did a Google search at the Triumph Forum (as many members are in the UK) but nothing came up.

I put in an EBC Kevlar clutch kit... With heavier springs...coffee grinder went away ...for about a year , then can back (a bit better than before)

Anyhow...the EBC kit did not have the all metal plates, was just the coated friction plates, and the springs for $89.00.

Many just lightly sand the metal plates instead of buying new ones....

I used the Barnett plates and springs. They are mad expensive and even though the bike shifts like a knife through butta I must have been out of my mind.

Jeez...$15.00 a plate? Who would buy just one? LOL

I've used their stuff before...in several bikes...top notch equipment for sure.
