When do you need stronger clutch?

When should you go with a stronger clutch setup than stock? My 09 103 has Wood 222 Cams, Fuel Moto 2-1-2 exhaust and Power Vision using maps designed by Jamie at Fuel Moto. Going by FMs dyno's with same setup I should be getting about 95 hp and 112 torque.

the stock setup should be good up to around 100 HP maybe a tad more

course depends on you as well

I have the same setup as you and the clutch started slipping as soon soon as I installed the 222 cams.

If your clutch isn't slipping I wouldn't bother with it. Your next step would probably be a VPC addition to your stock setup if you are experiencing any slipping or the SE spring.

The stock clutch plates works just fine for your bike.
A stronger clutch spring is what you would need.
I use the HD SE clutch spring in my clutch with no problems, if your bike doesn't already have it you should put one in.
The SE Clutch spring doesn't cost much and it is a easy DIY.

I blew through my stock clutch with headwork and mild cams. Even the Screaming Eagle spring wouldn't fully hold. Bike dynoed at 101hp/118tq. Bought a Bandit Sportsman and I now have no issues. I've been able to set it up with a lighter pull than stock and it holds solid.

Dropping off my bike tomorrow (Monday) for the 107 kit at FM. Will see what they recommend in regards to clutch. You wouldn't happen to be dropping yours off on Monday also?
