You do not want to know then how much we have into our Bonneville engines! The crank alone in the nitrous bike I am doing was over $2300

Well? How did it go?

Need help with my clutch issues. The barnett I put in this spring was a Kevlar with a hd spring. Come to find out it was a stock spring. Hence the clutch pulled in easy. I just put in a new Barnett with the stronger spring, had 75 miles on it. Drove the bike sunday, slipping when you roll the throttle on. What am I doing, I'm running BM trick shift fluid. Or am I just getting the primary too hot with a few hot lap passes. Anybody have this issue come up before?


Any how, I like launching the bike with the thunderheader on. The thunderheader was quicker on 1/8 times but a little slower on 1/4 times. The Sampson had better mph also. I think the Sampson pipe will out run the the thunder header on the big end. I ran both pipes Friday so I had a fair comparison. Didn't have any time to try the fun fuel I picked up after changing pipes and dealing with the clutch.

So I need to figure out the clutch issue before I go back to track. The weather sucked for racing, I'm assuming that's why my big end was off. Or I was a little fat on jetting for the weather. I ran both pipes with the jetting I put in on Dyno. After getting bent out of shape with the clutch and the heat I was a little fluuuuussssstttered. Haha. Anyway with the 1.67 60' and 7.28 1/8, those were both personal best, just disappointed on the big end. I did feel the tire break going into 3rd a few times, or maybe it was slipping. The point is, my clutch is burnt, that sucks. So I am up for ideas. Thanks madnss ,

I ran the Sampson first, then the thunderheader, last pass was 1.69 60' 7.30 1/8, then dropped to a 11.79 at 111 mph. So compared to last time. At 115 11.50 with slower 60's and 1/8's. Something was wrong, clutch? Or weather and jetting.
