Clutch Plates

My vmax will soon need new clutch plates.The EBC set is £84.70,the Barnett set is £109.95.Are the Barnetts worth the extra cash?Has anyone noticed an improvement after fitting these plates?Cheers,Mick.

Springs

Prices are for friction plates only.I've only looked on ebay so far,so i might get cheaper when i search properly.

Hi mickh13

Don't know where you are based but there are a few solutions to the slipping clutch of a Vmax. I know you are enquiring about plates but the real solution is to replace the diaphragm spirng with a Barnett setup which is a multispring cover plate, cost about £130 other solutions can be found on the EXACTREP website Coventry , service is excellent and if 'H' don't know about it then we are all in trouble.

Another V max specialist is Larry at PDQ Taplow

Hi Smidget

Thanks for the info.The clutch is not slipping as yet,but the biting point is towards the end of the lever travel so i think it will be spending time soon.:dopeyhmmmm:
