Probably Barnett is good for racing application but not for daily city riding.

    on 5-20 you posted this and i quote: "Alright, the new Barnett clutch has been installer so motorcycle should be good to go another 11000 miles. Will see how it will work."

    and now your stating "do NOT use Barnett clutch plates."

    which begs the question: are you completely ****ing insane? or just partially?

    I already had the new Barnett clutch plates on my hands before I found they are not going to last long enough. And since I had it already I had to use it. And I have to open the primary case soon anyway to see the clutch basket starter ring gear condition. So in 11000 miles I will kill two birds with one stone, I will replace the Barnett clutch plates, and will inspect and probably replace the clutch basket.

    But if you are looking for clutch, do not buy Barnett if you can find something else except you are OK to spend more money and replace clutch plates each second oil change.

    By the way, I reused the primary cover gaskets. Those gaskets have maybe 4 or 5 installations on them already ant still no leak. I also reused the shifter seal, it has 2nd installation on it. Manual says to replace all those gaskets, but I decided to take the risk and see if they will work with multiple reusages. I know you guys are afraid to do anything other than manual says, so stay tuned, I will report back to you how they perform when I will have more miles on them.
    Put some miles on the old gaskets. No leaks so far as expected. So primary case gaskets can be reused at least 4-5 times. And the gear shift shaft gasket can be reused at least once.
