I just replaced the stock friction discs. The metal discs were fine, and the springs were fine lengthwise. Not sure how I feel about heavy duty springs for street use. They make the clutch lever harder to pull, and put more stress on the clutch cable, lever pivot, The part that attaches to the bevel gear case, the actuating rod, and possibly other parts. More stress usually means faster wear. But, I tend to shift around 4000 rpm. I consider the Vulcan 750 a cruiser/touring bike, not a sport bike. 8500 rpm seems awfully high for a v-twin. In fact that is redline.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
