well for starters both my bikes are not barnetts or any aftermarket solution, its just the stock clutch with the spring plate removed and replaced with 2 (again stock parts, from a donor bike of a friend that 1340'd its engine and put an alto carbonite clutch) steel separators and 1 friction. both squeal (one is an old 883R and other is a newer 1200CX) but only on spirited take-offs and gear shifts

I suppose this setup is the worst offender on the squealing department.

by the way 1 donor clutch = 3 spring plateless bikes and you end up with some extra frictions just in case
