Default Dry clutch to wet clutch

What’s the best wet clutch to use in a ‘65 xlch, 66” strocker, sifton cams, etc? The bike is used for hill climbing and the wet clutch in it slips.

Assuming you're still using the '65 clutch basket with stock release parts.

I can't speak from experience but the barnett 303-30-10010 that has stronger springs and extra plate looks like it might work for you.

http://www.barnettclutches.com/1842/...ough-1970.html

The sintered iron plates would be the best but are supposed to be run dry.

On your hill climber couldn't you put the cover on the hub and run a dry clutch? If you couldn't get a perfect seal you could drain the primary oil between events so it wouldn't be sitting in oil when not in use. Just thinking.

Maybe give Barnett a call for advice. Make sure the 303-30-10010 can be run wet or dry. I think it can.

Read the clutch info here. I'd prefer to run it dry.
