Recommendations of Clutch brands?

Its time for a new clutch in the GSXR. Anyone have recommendations of brands or brands to stay away from. On atvs and dirtbikes in the past Ive gone with Hinson clutches but couldnt find anything made by hinson for GSXR's except for a slipper clutch assembly.

I was always instructed to stick with the stock clutch and pressure plates. Hopefully other will chime in. Sub'd

I had this question a couple years ago, and was told that OEM would last the longest, others have said to stay away from Barnett (which I had in my R1) as they would shatter??

So, I went with OEM Friction Plates and OEM Steel Plates, and installed Vesrah HD Clutch Springs and am using AMSOIL Synthetic oil. I had it installed 11 months ago, with regular oil changes and spirited riding I am finding that at 90mph in 3rd gear at upwards of 10K rpm, I can feel the clutch starting to slip.

I been told by several peeps that the Heavy Duty Clutch Springs are adding premature wear on the OEM clutch plates.

I will be going back to Barnett Friction, Steel, & HD Springs in a few months.
This is currently in my GSXR 1000 K4

HD springs do not hurt clutch plates... They actually help the plates grab, not cause them to slip..

Now maybe your "HD" springs are not that good and not putting enough pressure on the pack.

I never use Vesrah anything for anything.. I don't even use that junk on my fiddy..

Oem josh! If you have any questions lmk


To the person that its slipping w/oem stuff after 11 months, when you installed the clutch did you soak the fibers in a oil bucket for a while before install or ? Also what type of riding are you doing? Burnouts, wheelies, racing?
