GSXR 600 Clutch

Looking for a racing clutch or basicly anything better then OEM. Anyone know where to find one and the average cost of one? Also what is the benefits of having a high end clutch vs the OEM one?

OEM for sure.

However, I'm using a Versah clutch and I'm satisfied. Just ordered another one yesterday. For what you do OEM.

Wow how mediocre bet you use synthetic oil too for your wet clutch. Synthetic is trash its so thinnn! It seaps out gaskets all for the benefit of cleaning/detergent there is hype and what actually works. An aftermarket race clutch works well as long as you buy the entire kit including plates and not just the fibers. If anything lucas semi synthetic. Its hot here in texas so thin just gets thinner!

The thickness of the oil has little to with anything. It may seep out of a Harley but other bikes hold it in just fine. BTW thin only gets so thin. Wet clutches dont give a of its dino oil or syn. You need to do some research.

Riiight. Its handles cylinders, cam lobes, and rings but cant handle the loose tolerances of the gear box. What year do you live in?
