    OE is best in my opinion.

      My clutch appears to be approaching the end of its life. What sort of price should I be looking to pay to get it replaced at the bike shop?

        About 90 quid for parts and a couple of hours to fit.

          +1 on using Honda plates. It's what I used to replace mine at around 35,000 miles, and she's reading 66,000 now with no trouble. Mind you, it'll start slipping on my way home tonight...

          It's not too hard to do, really. You can even do it without draining the oil, if you've changed it recently. You're in Stoke IIRC? I'm in Chester and would be willing to lend you my garage and assistance if you wanted to come up one day.

          As far as price, David Silver do the OEM kit for 44 including springs. Oh, and you'll want a new gasket, they do them for [browses over to D.S.]6. I would expect to pay 100 or possibly more to have it done in a shop, including parts.

            Yep, I'm in Stoke. Wow, thanks for the offer Eric, much appreciated. I'll keep my eye on it over the next few weeks (it's not slipping badly atm) but may well take you up on your kind offer if that is ok. My Bros has 60,000 KM on it and I believe it still has the original clutch so I take it is due for a change sometime soon.

              44 quid for oem bits is a snip. Sure mine were 70 quid plus springs (8 quid ?) and gasket and that was 4 years or more ago.

              For what it's worth I remember the springs were shot before the plates but you may as well do both while it's opened up.

                  For me it was revs rising 'too fast' as I put power on.

                    Barnett Clutch http://www.barnettclutches.com/

                    I have them in the race bike.

                    As far as know when things are going. I have never really had a clutch go on me. But I am not experiencing the strong enging braking going into turns as I used to. I am guessing that it is finially time to change the clutch in 4 years of racing.

                      Usually on a motorcycle it starts to slip when you shift fast or try to accelerate from an RPM and the engine is reving faster than the back tire is turning. You will notice it......
