    Barnett, but don't bother with super strong springs, you'll just get wrist-ache.

    I put Barnett series K friction plates and steel drives plates into my F2 over the winter... works great...

    I also did the springs... and I'd have to disagree about the wrist ache Degs.... I love the feel of the lever... personally... I thought it made a much nicer feel... IMO

    Fair comment. I guess I'm a bit limp-wristed.

    Barnett is the way to go. have the kevlar friction plate,barnett steel plates and springs. But I also have a hydrolic clutch which takes a lot of wrist ache out but in the stop and go of Laconia I can get one hell of a forearm pump.

    just two months ago i put the full barnett clutch in my RF600R, Kevlar Friction plates, steel drive plates and heavy springs.

    GREAT STUFF, GREAT GRIP, so more slipping!!!!!!

    all for under $80 and i put it in myself, with some help in about two or three hours, including a dinner break. (might have been quicker without the beer included, tee hee)

    well i cheated a little bit, i found the friction plates and springs at MAW, then the drive plates i got on ebay from someone for $10. otherwise i might not have planned on replacing them, i am glad i did though, because when i opened the clutch up, several drive plates were burned and glazed.
    Oh and i also forgot, make sure you add new oil and grab a new clutch cover gasket ... that was another $10.

    Clutch is in and has about 200 miles on it already. Great deal, everytime i snap into the next gear the front becomes light again rather than just running through RPMs. Thanks for the info guys. Also, i put a new chain and sprockets on the CBR900 and the ride is great. the clutch is a bit stiff for my liking though. Hope the new springs break in a bit.
