Almost forgot to update this thread.

Sadly I only did 1,800 miles on my 2006 Sporty this past weekend, not the 2,000 I had estimated.

The good news is the clutch with the new XR1200 parts worked great. Not a squeal, chirp, slip, anything. I may do the same to my to my 2007 Sporty over the winter

I have ordered the XR1200 clutch parts and just reading how to fit them.

http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ef:priclutch02

Am i reading this wrong?
It say's to fit the bevelled spring plate with the inside diameter closer to the clutch hub and the outer diameter towards the pressure plate. The pic shows this the opposite way? Help, before i screw up!

I think you are misinterpreting the diagram, it is as you have stated "with the inside diameter closer to the clutch hub and the outer diameter towards the pressure plate"

But does it not show the outer diameter sitting closest to the clutch hub, touching the judder seat plate?

As the diagram indicates, you are looking at the top half of the discs - A bigger view would show the mirror (vertical flip) image of this at the bottom of the discs...

Look at the arrows at the bottom of the drawing...

The picture matches the description - In the picture, the base of the hub is to the right (and the inside diameter of the Judder Spring Plate is closest there) & the pressure plate eventually goes on the left...

Looking into the clutch hub (while sitting next to the bike), you will be seeing the Judder Spring Plate like looking into a cup (concave) - The rim is closest to you and the inside diameter is away from you... Of course, we're talking only a very small bevel here...

I'm not sure how many different ways to say it...

The diagram above is correct...for another view and some text check out the FSM section for the XR1200 clutch also another way to orient the drawing above is to imagine you are looking at the clutch assembly from the rear of the bike.
FWIW the fix is still working well on my bike after 8 months ...

Ok, I see it now, and it will all become clear when the parts are in hand.

Cheers.

At 15k miles, I replaced my stock clutch with a Barnett kevlar no-springplate kit.

QUESTION: Is there a compelling reason to go back to a stock clutch with the XR1200 parts?

Only reason I can think of is if there is a squeal. Interestingly Barnett used to supply a similar judder spring setup in their Sportster clutch kits but dropped it.

Picked up the parts yesterday. All in a bag so didn't check contents, got home and read my invoice and it said part no' 37913-90 qty-1. I thought hell, i now have to order another one. Opened the bag and found the packet had 6 plates in it!
Bit of a cock-up somewhere down the line!
