Clutch recommendations

Just curious to know what luck people here have had with different clutch options on the 675. I discovered on Monday at the track that my clutch is basically done and I need to replace it. The bike has almost 60k kms on the stock clutch and does see track time so I think the OEM held up pretty well. No power mods have been done to the bike so I don't need something crazy. Stock or slightly better than stock for a reasonable price. Opinions?

The sooner you introduce motorcycles into your children's lives, the less likely they'll have money for drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as teenagers.

Hey,

I just replaced my stock clutch at 40,000km with a $106 USD OEM clutch from a 2015 675R with 7,000miles through eBay. Cheap option but it's been great with the minor performance mods I have. Figured it was cost effective for what I do with the bike, which includes infrequent track days.

Was it just the discs and plates for $106, or the entire slipper clutch? If it was the slipper, that is a great deal. I'm not opposed to doing the same, but definitely am not paying a small fortune for a new slipper clutch. My downshifts aren't the only or primary issue I need resolved at the track.

Many have gotten slipper clutches for their bikes. Not worth the expense for a street bike imo.

I have 33k on the bike and was having clutch issues (which ultimately were caused by a grooved basket) but before I knew that I bought a Barnett complete kit for $180. Too late to return, so it will go in the bike when I get the basket figured out.

Entire slipper clutch including disks, basket, bearing, etc. It was a really good deal, and it's been a huge improvement from my last clutch.

Is that a slipper clutch? Looks like the regular one. Triumph slip/assist clutch has big ramps and three springs only. Still cheap either way.
