Barnett Clutch Kits for Harley-Davidson models
Our thanks to Ventura, California based Barnett Clutches & Cables - the first vendor to respond to last month’s AMD announcement that we will be looking to highlight product throughout the year to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Harley’s now “officially venerable” Evo platform.
Depending on the application, these Barnett clutch plates for Evo models are made with Kevlar or the company’s exclusive carbon fiber friction plates. They feature a ‘segmented’ design, which is proven to increase oil flow and allows the plates to run cooler for longer life and smoother, more consistent performance.
In addition, the carbon fiber friction material has a very high tolerance for heat, “making it an ideal choice for street or track.” Barnett drive plates are made from tempered steel and quality checked for flatness. All complete clutch kits are pre-measured to for proper stack height “to ensure smooth, reliable performance right out of the box.” Available for 1941 to present Harleys.
Also seen here, Barnett’s Scorpion low-profile lock-up clutch features a redesigned billet aluminum lock-up pressure plate that is designed to fit under the stock primary cover on ’90-‘97 Evo Big Twins, without the need to change or modify the cover.
As with all the company’s Scorpion clutch designs, the surface area is greatly increased, and lever effort is kept to a minimum. Three different coil spring sets provide a wide variety of spring pressure options allowing the rider to tune the clutch for stock to 200+ hp applications. A steel inner hub is also included to complete the unit.
All Scorpion clutches are designed to fit into the stock type clutch basket. “The versatility of the Scorpion makes it an excellent choice for stock to big inch motors, and ideal for Baggers, two up riding and pulling a heavy load. In addition, the lock-up pressure plate is also available separately as a retro-fit to existing Scorpion clutches.
