I have now broken two OEM clutch cables and one home made cable.
My only theory is that the Barnett springs are too much.
*IF* I had to do it again I'd probably mix two Barnett and two used OEM springs or buy all four springs OEM, new.

|canalagator||Related question, I just did the same on my 06 C-90, plates and springs as the old ones were, like yours, slipping. I also wouldn't engage until about the last half inch of clutch grip. After putting it back together with the Bartlett kit, I now won't engage at all. It shifts smoothly from gear to gear but doesn't actually engage the gears, or more accurately, disengage the clutch. At a loss, any ideas, thanks.|

|SlowHandSam||I really appreciate this series of pictures and the explanation of what you did, as someone who used to wrench on his own bike decades ago. No longer have garage space and few tools these day. However, your presentation has made this nearly doable curbside. Thanks for posting.|

I have always soaked the plates on any wet clutch I have re-built.
The friction plates are made to be run and used in oil,
so by soaking them first,
they will be ready to run,
no dry burnishing or friction glazing.
Here is something from Barnett's FAQ:
Q: How much stronger are Barnett clutch springs than stock?
A: While Barnett springs vary with each application, they are generally about 10-15% stronger than stock springs.
Q: How do I clean my clutch plates?
A: Lightly scuff the friction plates with a Scotch Brite pad to remove any shine and glaze from the surface. If the friction plates are being used in a wet clutch, be sure to soak the plates in oil before re-installing. Steel drive plates can also be scuffed with Scotch Brite or bead blasted.

I had seen that the plates get soaked in oil. Why?
Getting ready to do mine and I want to make sure everything is right and I don't mess it all up.......Forgive my ignorance!
