Anyone running this clutch or have experience with it? I bought one to try. 2 Carbon shoes and 2 Teflon. Wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

Best clutch in the business IMO! If you got the newer version that has the oring in the adjusting nut, then you almost don't need to loctite it! I've found the best setup in my 808 is carbon shoes, green spring and the adjuster nut 1/4 turn in from flush with the crank nut. This setup rips! I'm still on the original shoes that came with the clutch after at least 4 gallons of fuel and if you shim your clutch bell a little on the loose side, bearings will last for ages!!!

The works is a very solid clutch and once you take the time to set it up to your liking, it's pretty much a set and forget affair!
