Barnett clutch only good for 30 hours?

Ive never had to replace a dirt digger clutch but Ive got one in an 05 that has went bad in 30 hours!! I watch my cable and dont slip it alot. What is your favorite clutch?

Talking plate sets only, OEM, GYT-R, or Hinson.

Ya plate sets. I know Hinson components kick butt but I cant justify the cost.

GYT-R are the same thing re-labeled. OEM has always worked well for me.

Gray....If you were going to get steels and fibers. Would you go ahead and get the GYTR or just stay OEM? It looks like the GYTR is only about 20 bucks more. ???? I'm in need of one in my '06. I buy from my dealer just over cost. And curious if its worth it?

I don't know that it would be worth the difference to me, since I have no trouble at all with the OEM plates, but if you think the OEM stuff is less than adequate, then go with GYT-R.

Guys you all that keep having plate issues - need GYTR or Hinson. Some of us are light clutch users others are heavy users. Hinson and GYTR will hold up to much more punishment than oem, plates and components and this is why they cost more.

I'm kinda hard on them. Mine lasted 2 seasons. So I don't think I'm too tuff on them. But then again...I blew my knee out in the middle of that and didn't ride for 8 months.... They usually last about a year with me. So its up in the air if the GYTR would last much longer or be worth the added cost????

If you're that tough on them, try the GYT-R plates. If the kit comes with the boss spring and plate (a narrow bellville, or dished, spring and steel seating shim) I recommend not using it in an '06 unless the clutch exhibits undesirably abrupt engagement or excessively short lever travel to release. If it includes the release arm that it used to, that only applies to earlier models.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

      Brand new, still in the packaging Lexx end cap fits the stock muffler of 2006 & 2007 YZ450f and 06-13 YZ250f. Comes with a forest service approved spark arrestor and two different size tips. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power! Also a note for WR450 guys: get this tip and find a used 06/07 YZ muffler, fits directly on 09-15 WR450. $80 shipped free to the lower 48. PM, call or text 406-223-8789

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
