I ended up with mixed feeligns using different plate material.. In ways, its like anything else with its pluses and minuses. I was running mine offroad, so the street may be a better use for the carbon material.????
I did not really care for the way they engaged. I felt like they tended to grab harder. Maybe an advantage in some situations? Also, the play was very inconsistent and required constant adjustment.
Also, as the carbon would wear, it tore up all the clutch pieces and I had to replace them. I chose aftermarket Hinson parts. I wish they made street clutches.........
I remember seeing this on the warranty registration form for my Hinson clutch.
""""" You must register your product at Hinson Clutch Components
to activate your warranty. Use of Kevlar and carbon fiber clutch plates will cause excessive wear and will void your warranty. """""
The real problem with our stock clutches is the springs. When people look at new bikes, they hate a heavy clutch pull. For that reason, our stock springs are as weal as they can possibly use.
Good luck with them, and please report back as time goes on. I learned to avoid all aftermarket plates, use only oem , but for sure use heavy duty springs.
