What clutch to buy...

Well it seems I'm going to replace my clutch springs this winter, and since I'll have the basket in my hands why not replace the bands and fibers. So my question is ....what do I buy? Cork based, carbon fiber, Kevlar, and the list goes on I'm sure. Theses were the common ones I've seen on EBay...thanks y'all.

I put in the Barnett kit. It's working super well for me.

Same here. Barnett is an excellent set up. I've been impressed with the amount of pull and overall clutch performance. Better than new.

Don't know. Website does not refer to the material. May be proprietary.

Here is what I found...guess they are Kevlar ....lol . Is there a reason to replace the steel bands? Check out this item I found on eBay: http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?n...d=230862466487

Go for it. Keep in mind that the price is for one each. The picture shows four but your paying each. Also, its the new springs that really make the noticeable difference from stock.

Yes thank you....the springs are the whole reason why I'm getting into it.
