Re:Seafoam in oil to de-glaze clutch? 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
The guy who sold me the 2003 108 was wise and put the Barnett in it. That bike, due to the extra torque and HSR 42 is twitchy and less forgiving than the stock 1700. When that Barnett grabs, it's great for power launches.

My humble 2006 stock 1700 will get the EBC. Thanks for the advice as I would hate to have change the entire clutch. It only slips when hammering it in higher gears. I have now changed my riding style thus no slippage. I will check the plates when it is disassembled this winter. My parking lot police wanna be, practice every week has taken its toll on the old doll. I am surprised it held up this long for the abuse I keep putting it through.

I need to slow down but I find the speed limit painfully slow. It is a good discipline to stay with the flow of vehicles.
