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.

Heavy Duty Stock Clutch Spring

Dealer said this wont work on my 15 with the hydraulic clutch. Everywhere else I see says it does work on the hydraulic clutch systems. Clutch isnt any different than a cable style, its just actuated hydraulically as opposed to mechanically cable style? I didnt notice if any of the above posts bikes were 15's or not. Thanks in advance

The difference is, the cable clutch has a much wider range of adjustments, the cable and the rod, whereas the hydraulic clutch has no adjustments ~ the hydraulics "self adjust" (over a much narrower range)

It won't work with CVO hydraulic Clutch. It will work with the regular Hydraulic clutches. Why? I have no idea. I have the S.E clutch spring in my 14 street glide with a S&S 124 I have the stock clutch with the SE spring.

Thanks guys, im going in soon as possible to have the clutch recall taken care of and then I will pick up the clutch spring and throw it on for extra insurance. I done cams, but will prolly do jugs soon and every bit helps. Thanks again.

I didnt notice any slip yet with the stage 2 but just wanted to be safe and stay ahead of the game for 25 bucks and a quart of oil(or is it 32oz lol will have to check the manual, gasket and a reason to have a frosty malt beverage in the garage. I got the standard duty one from Barnett as I was ordering some stuff off of Amazon anyway and try to avoid Harley stuff as much as possible as they get enough from me every month anyway. My spring didnt come with instructions and i cant seem to find any on the web. I may email them to see but Im sure there isnt much to it. Any quick tips or suggestions? Thanks in advance. From what I hear the Barnett one is 5-25% stronger than the SE one. Barnett also has a heavy duty version as well. I wonder with the hydraulic operation on the newer bikes does the extra spring pressure even get noticed?
