Okay, I realize I have to file the "tangs" of the new clutch pack to fit the new clutch basket. But what is the exact tolerance? Any help would be great, before I start filing the clutch plates.

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (Dutch900)

What basket are you trying to put the pack in?

I didnt have to file mine at all to fit in a paulimoto basket


if you have to file the clutch plates your life is going to be shortened by 5 to 10 years

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (brettmess24)

Okay, what I have is the clutch basket from Motowheels and clutch plates from Barnett. The Barnett plates are so tight that they won't fit in the basket at all. I started to file them down a hair so they fit. Am I crazy? Also, 186 NM does that equal 137 foot/pounds?

Could be. Not to worry though.... it's worked for me.

I don't think there is a exact tolerance. The dude at Nichols (where I bought the thing) said to just take a little off to free it up in the basket a little. (I admit that mine did fit in the basket, they were just tight).

I have put 2 of em in and all I did was dremel 'em slightly to loosen them up. No problems and it's a strong clutch.

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (JamesP)

The odd thing about the whole deal is the basket has a ring or band around it. This is causing the plates to fit real tight, but once I get past the band (or closer to the "bottom" of the basket) the fit isn't as tight. So what is the deal?

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (Dutch900)

I have the same combo and installed it in my 748. I filed both sides of the tabs till the plates were snug but not loose...Well it was still too snug and I couldnt shift. I rode it and finally broke them in with some hard shifts. Now the Barnett and Motowheels basket is broken in and works like a champ...super quiet and smooth.

The plates in my Surflex just fit in the basket and they work great.
I think if your plates will slide into place, you'll be fine.

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (Dutch900)

Well, I have all of the plates filed down and in the basket...Now I just need time away from work to take the old basket out and put the new basket and plates in. So, with that said, any words of wisdom before I dive into the bike itself?

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (Dutch900)

Should be no big deal. Don't forget the loc-tite on the bolts that bolt the basket on.

Do you have a vented cover? If so, that little band that goes around the basket will rust. You might want to paint it.

Wait a sec...... that ring is zinc cromated, it shouldn't rust.

You can't get a more open clutch set-up then mine. No rust.

Re: New Barnett clutch pack in new basket (Mental998)

Could someone tell me what size the main clutch nut is? My Haynes manual doesn't tell me that.

The ring supplied with my basket was plain steel, no coating at all and it rusted.

How come you get the good stuff?


I just wire brushed it and put a coat of black epoxy out of a spray can.
