What clutch would you reccommend for a replacement on my new 06? Clutch lasted 2 days. Would a Barnett clutch kit be better than stock? Thanks. Oh and if your wondering how my clutch could be toast already I have 2 words... Hare Scramble. I dont know what I was thinking :applause: Never again.

well I would think you did not have the clutch adjusted properly. Also proper gearing if you are slipping the clutch would help (ie gear it down)

Sorry to hear that, must have been helluva race. Did you have enough clutch freeplay? My clutch is still very fine, it does not rattle neither do I find metal shavings in my oil filter as I did with my earlier bikes.
I would buy Hinson or GYTR, which in fact is Hinson but a bit cheaper. I already have the Hinson basket and was thinking of buying GYTR pressure plate, clutch kit and inner hub to have them all ready, but there has not been any need for it yet.

The clutch was adjusted properly... but I could have definatly geared the bike down a bit. The trail was so tight and muddy that I could hardly let go of the clutch.

That will do it.......Ummm ...hinson clutch......Well GYTR will be cheaper and will work just as good.

So I'm guessing the GYTR will be my best bet then.. Thanks.

This gentleman had a similar experience:

The GYT-R clutch components are in fact Hinson clutch components. They will work just the same because they are the same. But they cost less.

I will say and have said that the complete Hinson in my 450 is unquestionably the absolute best clutch I have ever had in any motorcycle I have ever owned or ridden by any measure of performance. It's that simple.

Will the GYTR clutch fibers and steels perform as good using the stock basket, hub and pressure plate? I would like to upgrade the whole Assembly but since its pretty expensive, and the bike is still new, I would like to run the stock components for this season anyway.

There is some performance benefit to using the Hinson/GYT-R hard parts, but aside from the longevity, they don't add that much compared to a stock boss/basket that's in good condition.

Friction plates that have been run on a grooved basket should be replaced when replacing the basket, though, as the thrust faces of the tabs may be rounded somewhat, and could prematurely wear the new basket.

Gray, I contacted Hinson as I wanted to know for sure and this is what they replied:
"We don't manufacture GYT-R parts. We did in the past but that was at least two years ago. Their is a difference between ours and theirs. We have have a much different type of coating that is very strong, and works good for durability."
:applause: I was in the belief too they still did produce them.
