Since 1948, Barnett clutch plates and springs have been made from the finest materials available. Through research and development, they are constantly striving to offer the best possible friction material for your motorcycle or ATV. Barnett tempered steel drive plates go through a vibratory deburring process and then are quality checked for flatness to provide optimum performance. Heavy duty Barnett clutch springs are pre-set, shot-peened, and heat treated for performance and durability.

Barnett Clutch Kit:

  • Barnett clutch kits are designed to tolerate whatever you can deliver with their top quality construction and components.
  • Barnett has been developing their burly clutch kits since 1948 for dirt bikes, street bikes, and ATVs.
  • Clutch kits include durable tempered steel friction plates that have been processed and tested to ensure optimum performance.
  • The heavy-duty clutch springs have been manufactured for durability by using shot-peening and heat treating.
  • Expect better clutch feel, performance and abuse control when you install the Barnett clutch kit in your application.
  • Includes friction plates, steel drive plates, and a set of springs.
  • Available with Series K Kevlar® or CF Series Carbon Fiber friction material.
  • Note: Specific kit contents vary by fitment; image is for display purposes only.

Series K Kevlar® Friction Plates:

  • The Kevlar® performs flawlessly under severe conditions and delivers smooth, precise shifting.
  • Kevlar® friction material is bonded to 6061-T-6 alloy CNC-machined cores or tempered, steel cores, depending on the application.
  • Compatible with stock steel drive plates, springs and all oils.

Carbon Fiber Friction Plate:

  • Carbon fiber segmented friction plates are extremely durable and heat tolerant.
  • A high static and dynamic coefficient of friction provides a smooth, positive engagement and release.
  • Will not contaminate oil.
  • Compatible with stock steel drive plates, springs and all oils.
  • If you are extremely hard on your clutch, these are the plates for you.

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.

Great product

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

Does this clutch kit fit the ktm 525 engine that is in a 2008 polaris outlaw? And are any special tools necessary to install at home?

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. http://www.motosport.com/atv/oem-parts/POLARIS/2008/OUTLAW-525-S/ENGINE%2C-CLUTCH-_-A08GJ52AA~AB~AC

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.

I have a ktm duke200 2012 model can u kindly guide me for selecting a proper kit of friction and pressure plates along with stiffer springs?

MotoSportExpert
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.

Have ktm 65sx bike jumps forward with lever pulled in when in gearar and running?
What is wrong
MotoSport Staff

MotoSportExpert
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.

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.

Who to trust?
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

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 am sure they are Kevlar. I have had it for 2 mos now. Nice grab off the perch. Make sure you soak the plates in oil for a half hr before you assemble

The plates are fiber.

redgreenfan5
Yes, the plates are kevlar as it say in the description "?The Barnett clutch kits are built with Kevlar fiber plates. Kevlar is the same material found in bullet proof vests, which make these clutch kits extremely tough."

Is it my clutch?
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

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.

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.

It depends on what all needs to be replaced but it is usually the fiber plates, steel plates and springs which come in this kit.

If you have a hinson kit that can accommodate a stock OEM clutch kit, than this Barnett will fit.

Just adjust your cable, also change your oil if you have old oil it will cause these symptoms
