I am running the MTC with the mtc supplied shims and springs. It sticks like crazy and have no trouble finding neutral or shifting. I can test anything out, it's easy enough to take apart the clutch.

Eric just got the Barnett springs put on the stock clutch, and Mike/RU469 doesn't exactly have a bike left.

It's about time we hear from you Old School. Where have you been? A lot of us have been trying to call you...

All I can tell you at this time is there is some R&D going on and some people might/are needed for some testing.

We've had pretty good success at the shop using the Barnett Heavy Duty springs with the MTC clutch plates.

I put in the "new and improved" MTC clutch last weekend.....Aside from missing one thin shim in the kit,and having to make one,the clutch works just perfectly..

Clutch

I have been running the MTC clutch and Barnett H.D. springs for over a year. Good positive shift,easy to find neutral. It works well.

I just put mine in last week. Newer kit I think Short strong red springs and 24 shims. They doubled the shim pack and I used all of them.
Followed Bare's write up.

Fun at 60 mph in 5th quick down shift to 3rd and twist the throttle it pulls the front end extending the fork legs and sits you back with no slipping.

Been using the Barnett springs for over 3 years. Was quite the improvement over stock. Have had no slippage or problem finding neutral most of the time.

I just put the barnett clutch in with the springs that came with it, the bike does want to creep forward a bit with th clutch pulled in, any thoughts (tech session at the dells?)
Do you have the stock levers? I think some after market levers have a shorter throw

Yes I have the stock levers, I am assuming it will probly wear in quickly, I only have about 10ft on the clutch

I am interested in what comes of this.

Right now I have the HD Barnett springs on the stock clutch. I'm learning hard towards the MTC, hoping I can make it till winter!

I put the MTC in about 4k miles ago. No lurking forward, and neutral find hasn't changed. Just a whole lot more grab. Just change it now. It only takes about an hour, more depending on what speed you like to work. After you put it in you will want to take it for a ride to see how much more fun it makes the bike...

Oh, I missed the part where you said that you just put it in. Did you soak the plates before you put them in? I could see the plates might be too dry at first and not getting enough lube to allow full disengage.

I rode a guys after he had the MTC in, that's why I am leaning towards it. But I had to shut it off to find neutral.
