Clutch Tamer vs. Ram Jett Clutch Retainer

Anyone have some input on the Pros and Cons of the Clutch Tamer vs the Ram Jett clutch retainer to solve the clutch grabbiness on a Shovel.

I know the Clutch Tamer is more expensive. Also I've read that the Ram Jett company was purchased by someone else and the quality may not be the same as on earlier models, ie. not as tough.

If I opt for the Ram Jett, does anyone know who might still stock the "original"
or how I can be sure?

Thanks.

I've had a Ram Jett in my 1982 FXS for over ten years. It works perfectly, exactly as advertised. They are made out of molded nylon. I can't imagine any other material that they could use that would be any less expensive. I haven't heard about the company being sold. That sounds like some other company's hype to me.

Don't know anything about the other company you mention. If it's more expensive, I would still buy the Ram Jett. Install one and forget it.

I ran "The Tamer" for years in my shovel and it worked well. After years of abuse I managed to damage the transmission. When I pulled it apart and installed the RAM Jet retainer. It was in my clutch for a couple of years until I installed a 5 speed. When I took it apart the RAM Jet was still holding up but had a little wear. Ultimately the RAM Jet is a much simpler solution, easier to install and less expensive. I would use the RAM Jet again before "The Tamer".

I do have a new (old) "The Tamer" clutch fix and the one I pulled out of my bike for parts. If you are interested PM me.
