Clutch spring

Is the 6 spring setup worth the extra coin vs upgrading to the heavy duty diaphragm spring?

Depends on how much power you are putting down and at what RPM the clutch is slipping at.

Not a significant amount of hp Frankie. Only time I notice slip is high rpm 4-5-6 shifts and really only when I'm having too much fun and shift too quickly at WOT. Would you say a heavy duty diaphragm spring would help with that? I'm not concerned with pull weight. Thanks.

My bike also slipPed a little in the higher gears when I'm getting in the throttle. I got the heavy duty clutch diaphragm spring from Harley. It doesn't cost much and is easy to install. Works just fine.

I would do the SE spring and see how it holds.

I had these same problems and installed a Rivera Pro Clutch, problems solved. Not the cheapest solution but it worked for me.

I use the HD SE clutch spring and I never had the clutch slip at any RPM or riding situation. I think in most cases the clutch slipping would be a clutch adjustment issue on the 103 or 110 engines no matter what upgrades the bike has.
I also installed the SE clutch plates which eliminates the damper spring and damper spring seat and replaces those parts with full size clutch plates.
