A little off subject.
When S&S developed their clutch years ago, they supplied it with the no slip race, and shims. This combo was used to locate their clutch assembly on the mainshaft. As I recall Harley had a patent on their location setup. :oops:

John I may be looking for some shims. I just hope there are some floating around.

I just got back from a trip out west on the bike. 7K miles and I am loving this new setup. I got an updated kit for the clutch from Barnett while I was in Sturgis. I installed it when I got back home. I now have a great clutch lever. It starts to grab almost as soon as you let off the clutch lever. I have done 2 primary fluid changes since the install. I am going to New England later in the month as well as riding around close to home. I should have more then 10K on this new setup by the end of the year.

After the first 500 mile breakin / fluid change it was quite as a Church Mouse. I asked Barnett about the noise and it seems I didn't soak the clutches long enough before assembly. I absolutely love this setup.

Hey Dawg,

Can you verify your final setup? and how much harder is the pull now that everything is seated?

Thanks!!

It's a little harder to pull the clutch in BUT as soon as you let it out it grabs. I'm very happy with the setup so far.
