What you would expect from Barnnett

This clutch fit as it was supposed to, works like it is supposed to, and according to my father who has run this clutch in his KTM 520 for years this clutch lasts. This is what I would expect from Barnett. The orange clutch springs are a nice touch even though they are covered by the clutch cover.

Good and durable

These last longer than the pro circuit ones for me and seem to take more abuse. Also this kit was cheaper.

2009 YZ125

I installed this clutch in a highly modified 2009 YZ125. I weigh 180 pounds and my skill level is novice. This clutch has great feel and grabs hard. I started off with the heavy spring, but I quickly changed to the softer springs. I have 4 hard hours on the clutch at Oak Hill MX in Decatur Texas and it is working great.

Fantastic Clutch. Lasts a lot longer and puts up with abuse if you ride your bike hard.

Better than O.E.M.

This clutch outperforms and outlasts O.E.M. clutch by far. Stock O.E.M.
clutches didn't last long in my CR500. Against my friends advice I tried
the Barnett clutch kit and I was pleasantly surprised. This clutch blows away the stock setup, and I'm talking about trail riding in Hawaii.

Worth every penny

these are by far the best plates i have ever used - the low end torque i got from these makes them worth the extra money

Barnett Clutch Kit

Barnett clutch kits outlast all other after market and OEM kits. They are also less expensive then OEM. I replace clutches as a complete set new springs are included in these kits. I tried some bargain brands as well as some other higher end name brands, Barnett's out last them all. Insure your clutch is properly adjusted, I run 1/8 of free travel. I common mistake is to have no slack in the cable this burns the plates much faster.

Barnett Clutch Kit

Very easy to install, and works great. I put this clutch through the ringer, during a marthon race through tight and rocky single track. I heated this clutch up, and it still preformed great. I have had the clutch in now for about 3 months, and it still works great.

I was going to buy an oem clutch kit, but I found the Barnett kit to be a better product for the money. As always, Motosport shipped it to me next day. Thanks Bryan Kirkland

Barnett clutches are the way to go. Replaced tired clutch in a 250, work these over pretty hard on tight trails and hill climbs and they are always there, no fade, very durable. Great clutches.

Q: Cr125 power loss?
1 year 1 month ago
I have a 2006 cr125r. It has been running great since I got it, haven't ridden it since July then I rode it 3 weeks ago, it feels like it wants to go it revs real high but when you let the clutch out it barely goes! I'm wondering, could it be the plates slipping? Could it be the jetting, since it is colder now than it was in July, now it is typically 5 degrees celciious not 30-40. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

A: It could be many different things, its hard to say without inspecting the bike. Did it sit with gas in it? I would first clean the carb and check the jets to make sure they are not clogged.

A: This particular Barnett Clutch kit is not made to fit your '08 Polaris Outlaw 525. From what I can find we would only carry the OEM replacement clutch for that model.

A: Not sure about fitment but if it was listed for your ride you should be good. No special tools needed if you are just replacing plates and springs. Remove outer clutch cover, remove spring bolts and pressure plate and you have access to the plates.

A: Unfortunately with the Duke 200 not being a US model also, I do not have the information for this bike in our parts database. This means that I am unable to even cross reference what parts are used for the clutch in this model. I apologize for any inconvenience but for this model you will need to contact a local KTM dealership for the proper parts.

What is wrong
MotoSportExpert
MotoSport Staff
Over 3 years ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
A: You are either having an issue with the hydraulic clutch not being able to disengage the clutch fully, or the clutch basket has worn out and will not let the plates slide freely to disengage. I would try to bleed the hydraulic clutch which would be explained in your service manual or by the local KTM service shop. If that doesn't fix it you will need to tear the clutch cover off and inspect the clutch itself for worn or damaged parts.
Egonz
2 years 8 months ago Location: Orlando, FL
A: You could have a couple simple issues. Number 1 - when your bike is cold it is normal for this to happen. I would suggest letting the bike warm up fully before engaging the clutch and popping it into gear. Number 2 - , heavier weight oils will also cause this. Make sure you use what the manufacturer recommends. Many folks use Motorcycle $ stroke 10w-40 and that works well but requires you to change it more often. Number 3 - your clutch cable could need to be adjusted. You should have some play in your clutch lever and it should never be tight. If the cable is adjusted out as far as it can go because that is the only way that the clutch works then your cable is probably stretched and needs replacing. Number 4 - your clutch plates are sticking together because they are about worn out. If the bike didn't use to do this and is now doing it then mostly that may be the case. Replace the clutch plates and readjust your cable.

Good luck. Hope that helps.

Q: Who to trust?
Over 6 years ago
I race and do ice racing in the winter here up north in canada, I am purchasing this barnett clutch but I have worries. i read all the reviews and there are a lot of awesome reviews from top contributers. But there are also a lot of bad reviews from guys saying it started slipping during second moto's or in a week and stuff like that. My guess is that they did not let it soak in oil. Is there an expert answer or does motosport use these clutches in their race teams? hmm... I'm going to give it a shot anyway

A: It really depends on who you ask. I've ran Barnett for years and have been happy with them. Like you said, some reviews are bad and i'm not saying they installed the clutch wrong or anything but there are so many different variations in riding styles, types of riding, oils people use, did they soak the plates etc etc so it's really hard to say that some of the problems people have had are due to quality or manufacturing issues.

Just like any other product on the market, some like em', some dont.

i have a 2000 yz250 that i think is fairly underpowered. i watch vids of these bikes and the front ends come up like crazy. well mine doesn't unless i pull all i am worth. it seems to run ok but just doesn't have a very good snap like i think these bikes should have. i have a new piston in it. is this my clutch?? if not please list all probable things that may be wrong. thanks a lot

A: Could be your clutch slipping, but its hard to say since the bike is not in front of me. Pull your clutch apart and check your disks and see what condition they are in.

A: it could either be that your clutch basket is slipping or need new springs. What this clutch kit will do is give a little more snap when giving it gas after switching gears or letting out the clutch.
