While riding pretty aggressively I am noticing the clutch is slow to engage. I have an email out to Barnett as they show a clutch pack for the Street 750 but does not list the Street Rod as a fitment. I'm looking for a stiffer clutch pack.

Here is the response I received from Barnett merely hours after asking the question on a Saturday..........

"Yes, as listed on our website this will fit. It is a complete kit with Kevlar material and will give you smooth but positive engagement.
The springs that are included are 12-15% stiffer then stock which also helps."

After 26,000 miles on my 2015 Street 750, I have notice that my clutch is slipping when I roll hard into the throttle in either 3, 4, 5, gears. The engine revs up and then you feel the bike accelerating (myself weighing in at 240 lbs shouldn't matter). I don't encounter this with normal driving and accelerating. Even with this condition, my mpg average is still around 50-53 mpg and that's with a FP3 on board. My clutch lever is very easy to pull back. My favorite cruising speed is 60 mph but on occasion when I come up upon slower moving cagers, I want to be able to pass without hearing the motor rev up first as if there is a slight lag time for torque. It use to not be this way. It might be time to go aftermarket clutch springs and clutch.

I need to take my motorcycle in for 25,000 mile service check. At which time I will have them check the clutch again while riding it and not put in first gear with no motor running check. I still have just under two years left of my extended warranty so putting in an aftermarket clutch and springs may or may not affect my warranty. Either way something is going to be changed on my Street 750.

I found this at Barnetts web site:

I'll be going with the Barnett kit. It's pretty much what I was looking for though working with the clutch adjustment has helped a bit in the mean time.

After riding my motorcycle twice this year (weather permitting), My clutch was slipping when I rolled into the throttle. If there is one thing I have learned about the clutch and clutch lever on my Street 750 is that the clutch lever needs to have slack and feel a bit loose. This past Thursday, I made the adjustment on the cable with the two nuts as well as the tensioner bolts on the clutch lever. The lever was just so slightly floppy. Made all the difference in the world. I can roll hard on the throttle with no engine revving except for the sudden stall of the rev limiter. As cold as the winter was and still windy as **** while typing this, I can't help but wonder if the clutch cable shrank just a bit to cause the clutch to not be fully engaged while I had the bike parked in an unheated garage this winter. One of the other users here is going to be installing a Barnett clutch in there Street 750. I'm going to wait on replacing mine and see what Scooter has to say about the Barnett clutch if he has it installed already. In the mean time, Winter just doesn't want to allow Spring to visit us here in Wisconsin. 33 degrees F and 33 mph winds not quiet the ideal riding conditions.

The Barnett clutch is not installed as of yet. My biggest peeve is when running the bike to redline the clutch is slow to engage. Since they used the same clutch assembly for the Street Rod that they use in the Street 750 I don't think the clutch is up to the task in the Street Rod.
