    So, looks like my clutch is wearing out.

    I would like to get a heavier duty clutch with stronger springs...especially since my wife rides with me all the time.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Bandit Bruiser. Great clutch and probably the CHEAPEST option overall as well.
    If you need a new carrier they also carry a billet one (call them its not on the website last time I looked)

    How many miles you got on that to wear out the clutch?

    I’d recommend removing the oem wet primary and install a baker open primary, the benefits are huge.

    Yep, open primary is so much smoother and responsive, plus you've got the added bonus of the cool factor..

    I still have my OEM clutch with 20K on it and 95% of my riding is 2 up and it still doesn't slip. I do have a new clutch pack in the tool box to replace it someday when I feel it starting to slip. Though I have the 12 disc with the soft pull and not the 9 disc the later bikes have in them.

    Baker has a new pressure plate and heavier/thicker spring. Fixed my slippage after all the upgrades engine mods I did this year.

    I'll give you a hundred bucks for the complete clutch basket assembly shipped and you can just trash the rest of the parts or give them to someone that needs them.
