Choice clutch of the track usuals.

I just wanted to get a few people to weigh in on some decent clutch choices. Barnett, EBC, Suzuki OEM. The bike is track only, and I'm not real familar with clutch options. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a Barnett and like it over my OEM one. All are probably fine. I like the feel the Barnett provides as compared to my OEM.

But, I have a Honda and it's a hydraulic, not cable....

OEM - thank everyone else later.

I went an aftermarket route aswell on my track bike, lets just say it was less then pleasing with the small issues, adjustments & labor that it cost me.

Hmm. Ok, thanks guys! It seems OEM is the best way to go with replacing the plates/springs. I'm a little under par on knowing the best tech stuff. I just needed some schooling.......Much appreciated!
