Default Clutch swap

So a couple of months ago I converted my '07 883 to a 1250. On my first 3/4 throttle run I powered through the stock clutch. I nursed it around while I gathered parts, a BDL/Energy One plus one kit with heavy spring, a James gasket set, and a Basocity clutch tool. I picked up the whole collection for $188 from Amazon. Throw in a quart of Formula and the deal was done. The swap was very simple. One trip to the FSM for reference on initial clutch adjustment and I was done. Very solid hook up, a little more lever pressure, similar to a big twin. I'm a couple a hundred miles in and satisfied. A hard 1 to 2 shift will bark the tire.

If anyone needs a lightly used (2700 miles) stock clutch, I seem to have a spare. I'd rate this job as a 2 of 5 for mechanical skill and 3 beers from start to finish.
