    It is getting worst faster and faster. It already slows down at 40 mph during moving uphill.

    Has anyone tried to sandpaper the steel plates?

    Dear Lord. Please help TPEHAK see the light. He is considering taking apart the whole clutch assembly, and while it is apart and perfectly ready to replace, he thinks that sanding the plates and re-installing a known blownout clutch and spring is a good use of his time and money.

    Go ahead, see if it will hold 84ft/lbs of torque. Report back. I alway like a good chuckle.

    Alright. The new clutch plates Barnett 306-300-20015 and some cheap clutch spring retaining rings A-37908-90 Eastern Performance are here. Those rings look worst than original made in Japan Buell 37908-90 retaining ring, they are not perfectly flat and they have no perfect surface finish. But at least they made in the USA, so I hope they will just work and won't let my clutch pack blow apart.








    I also found that the clutch plates I bought in americansportbike.com which are currently installed and slips are the same Barnett 306-300-20015 clutch plates. So it looks like these Barnett clutch plates will not let me ride more than 11000 miles.

    Here is Barnett clutch plates vs original 2009 Buell XB clutch plates. I replaced original clutch plates at 11000 miles and they were OK, but now at 22000 miles the Barnett clutch is slipping, so I believe the original Buell clutch plates will work longer than that high performance Barnett clutch plates.

    I have over 32,000 miles on my bike with original clutch and NO problems. You must beat the hell out of that bike!! I feel sorry for that poor bike.

    Maybe,, just maybe, it's the installer ?

    Just kidding, I've seen your work but, I'm surprised your not making your own parts on the 3D printer, what's up with that ?

    I'm sure its Buell's fault. It couldn't be the guy running a known blown out clutch for way too long...


    I hear Buell's are undependable

    28k on my original clutch.
