In first gear it just revs. I put the plates in as followed fiber, anti-chatter, fiber, steel, fiber etc. Does anyone know the proper configuration if that is not correct?

Thats the correct way they go in. Go back over everything, check your stack height and clutch rod make sure its workin properly probly just something you missed.

What is the correct stack height. Can the ebc clutch kit I used be the problem?
YES....and also if the housing plate was not seated right I don't remember if that's still possible to check but like zxracer said re-check the install...go the the "how to" section on this forum there is a thread on this but if the pics are missing just do a search you should see how the stack should look before being button up.

Also search Garth on this site he hosts the manual as well.

I'm having serious problems with my gen 1. I replaced the clutch and cable and assembled as followed fiber, anti-chatter, fiber, steel, fiber, steel, fiber, steel, fiber etc but clutch slips bad. First gear just revs and doesn't catch at all. I'm used new ebc kit. I have adjusted the cable at the lever and engine with no response. And last fiber is one notch over. Please help.

Did you presoak the clutch plates in oil before installing them?

You should have 5mm of play at the handle about the gap of a nickle.

Could you take a picture of the clutch pack? Have you checked to make sure the pressure plate is in the correct grooves?

I bought a Barnett for the 6 couple years back and had the same issue, was not getting power to the wheels, bike would just Rev up. Problem I had was the Barnett came with the wrong springs. I put the stock springs with the new fibers and fixed the issue. Not sure if you replaced the springs but if you did worth a check to see if that's it.
