Clutch Springs SUCK

The stock clutch springs SUCK especially on the Juice... Ryan, If you hear of anyone out there making heavy springs let me know. I'm sure you'll be the ones to supply the market when they do come around. I'm going to try some of my heavy spings from my 1000 or maybe my ZX12 heavy springs. Just cut them down and go from there..

You are probably right. In the past I have use stock clutches but Barnett springs.

Thanks! Yes back in the day I used barnett springs myself. Like you said though, their clutches SUCK compared to OEM. But they did make heavy springs for the old GSXR1100's.. Let me know what you come up with!
Thanks, Recon

OEM's the only way to go. Besides the dudes at Barnett suck ass......lol. They were rude and not helpfull at all on my inquiry.

Weld the slipper and use a 15T if your drag racing and your sure to see many passes on a clutch set-up. I still use OEM Fibers and Metals and still on the stock springs and have had no issues since the 2 little mods. I get about 100 passes on each clutch. Now I don't know what it's going to take to hold the Nitrous, have not tried that yet. Once I go a 6.10 or better on Motor I will spray it. Im only at a .19 right now.....
