Clutch recommendation

What clutch is a good replacement for the stock factory clutch? I have close to 50k on the odometer and will be changing out the stock compensator for a 30 tooth sprocket. I will also be putting in a screaming eagle pressure plate at the time. As always thanks for your help.

What year bike do you have I have the stock clutch from my 2016 FLRTXS 10 mles I might sell. If you want to go new I decided to go Bandit Sportsman.

If it has been working fine for the last 50k, then why spend the extra money on upgrades you don't need. Throw some new friction and steel plates and roll with it.

Barnett offers replacement parts now, Clutch baskets, inner hubs.

But if your not having any real issues, I'd check the bearings, replace the clutch plates along with the SE Spring.

Getting away from stock can get expensive, but it sure looks pretty

My bike is a 2011 rgu. I wanted information on the subject because it seems while looking around here everything Harley puts into the bike is cheap and there seems to be something better on the aftermarket. I have ridden my bike close to 50k miles with the stock motor and am wanting a little bit more now. I know through past experience that this will continue to grow but budget being a factor I'm content to do a little at a time. I plan on putting Andrews 57H cam in then after seeing how everything feels upgrading the clutch plates and pads. I just had carpul tunnel surgery so I'm considering a product to help lighten the clutch pull as well. I'm sure my grip will get stronger again with use but a lighter clutch would be nice as well. This getting older sh!t sucks, but I've heard it beats the alternative.

2011 Road Glide Ultra, Andrews 57H, VeeTwin Performance street port, Big Sucker Intake, Rhinehart 2/1 w 4" muffler, Power commander V, Paugcho 17" bars, Stock seat recovered with leather, Michelin Comander II 140/80B front, Yokohama Envigor 205/60/16 rear. It's better on the dark side.

I'm seeing two different flavors of clutch disks on Barnett's site: Kevlar and carbon fiber. Which is better? I just like to ride without blowing up the bike. I seldom reach 5000 rpm but I suppose that might change if/when I put in the 30 tooth sprocket.

I would replace with stock plates, with stock spring and add a FM or AIM Variable Pressure clutch to it. I had 97hp and 112tq on my 2012 SG 103 it worked awesome and reduced pull not increase it never slipped.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have been looking at that but wasn't sure of how well it worked.
