Clutch Spring Pressure

Need to know the spring pressure of each spring in the clutch. I searched and saw somewhere that the '06 is right around 62 lbs. per spring, but this is for a '04 model.

they are the same 60-65lbs, barnett has stiffer springs all the way up to 100's if you need them.

I am running 3 stock springs and 3 100's in my 2011 right now

MT-91-6 were the 100's I believe

At 60-65 lbs, that's between 360-390 lbs of static spring pressure!

No Prob, yeah I believe they are 62's stock then barnett sells I think 75, 85s and 100's

I am running 3 100's and 3 stockers so stock pack would be 372lbs I would be at 486lbs but I do a lot of top end stuff so I want my pack tight

Dont mean to thread jack.... but what do you guys run for plates on your 1st gens?

I heard that in between the 1st 2nd and 3rd gen, the 1st had the best plates, is there any aftermarket ones that would be better or just oem is fine?

"The ZX-10R is capable of being perfectly docile and tractable, but few men are capable of resisting its ever-present voice urging them to just twist it and see what happens."

Call up Dwaye at Cycle Concepts he has a "Drag Pack" for the zx10r's that holds up very well. I'll probably change mine over after a few more top end runs soon.

Garth do you want to get rid of your other 3barnett springs? I'm in need of some heavy springs BAD.
