Thanks for the feedback bodine. I think Ill take a chance with the Barnett. From my own experience and everything Ive read about the quality/longevity of current and past options available its hard to imagine it could possibly be more problematic. At any rate at 73 canadian dollars delivered to my door its by far the cheapest option available. My only previous experience with Barnett products was one of their clutch plates added to a friends brand new 1971 810 Paul Dunstall Nortons clutch in a futile effort to prevent persistant clutch slippage at higher revs,particularly in 4th and 5th. Not a comment on the barnett plate so much as the pathetic Norton design. The problem was resolved by another problem when the dogs on one of the gears (I forget which)on the quaiffe sheared off in another spectacular display of poor quality/design leaving the bike once again as expensive roadkill....I could write a book about the failings of that particular bike! Great fun to ride but a frustrating never ending melange of mechanical woes.

One thing about Barnett plates on Tridents: there is very little slippage. In fact if you are trying to slip the clutch it is difficult, They are on/off switches.

I was a young hot rod at the time, so it didn't really bother me much. Some time later I had an oil leak into the clutch area which fouled the clutch plate. I replaced the plate but I don't remember what I used.
