The best clutch I have ever used is a Buku. I have been using the same clutch bell bearings for 4+ months.

getting a whole season out of a clutch and being able to make adjustments w/o taking the engine out is worth the cost... i ran regular clutches and once i ran the buku i was hooked

BUKU for sure. I have many buggies to keep up and without having to worry about changing clutches all the time is awesome. The Kevlar shoes are awesome and when you get it dialed in your bearings will last because you don't have tons of wheel spin. Saves bearings, shoes, and tires. It's well worth the money. A season on one set of shoes is the best

Just read the instructions before tuning it in and it's not hard at all.

Buku for sure. Even if your not into tuning the engagement point, It's worth it for the durability. The shoes last forever, it saves bearings because it doesn't slip and get hot, it saves your clutchbells. The buku is well worth the money, because of all the money saved on clutch shoes and bearings.
