Love and hate Screaming Eagle heavy clutch spring

Installed a SE heavy clutch spring, love the action, definitely less slippage. However it is about 30% heavier, have been searching an ez clutch for a 6-speed, couldn't find anything. Any workaround? Thanks!

Uncle Salty is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Several options to choose. Some go with a VPC (Variable Pressure Clutch) that uses centrifugal force to put more pressure on the discs. I went with a Rivera Pro clutch that has more surface area and a lighter pull than the stock clutch. That's the only one I've used. It works well with my mild 95" (100/100) build. I rarely even need to adjust it so I assume that means it's not wearing very fast. It definitely holds the power.

I'm running a product called the ClutchWiz on my 06 Ultra with a 120" HQ build, I'm using the Energy One extra plate clutch plus the AIM billet pressure plate along with the 480 lb AIM clutch spring. With the ClutchWiz I'm not getting any detectable clutch slippage and my clutch pull is butter smooth and easy plus its cheaper than a VPC.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to have to try this on my Street Gide. Ever since i did the engine build and went to the SE clutch spring i dread getting stuck in city traffic due to the heavy pull.

Awesome! I don't wanna spend $300 for a VPC centrifugal clutch spring, Clutchwiz $138 sounds reasonable.

I've been quite happy with mine, the guy who manufactures it is a stand up guy who puts customer service 1st. I've also run them on both my dad and my Trike, I had one in my Trike with Wood 555 cams and SE spring while pulling a trailer through VT and NH never had a single issue.

Thanks! I have checked earlier, it fits my Dyna.
My only concern is 5 and 6 speeds are different, how can one size fit all? Unless the Burly one fits both, I have emailed tech support, you know Friday, nearly no response lol.

There's about $100 difference in price between the Clutch Wiz and this Burly product. The down side to the cheaper (Burly) product is i have to remove my exhaust which makes this more than a 30 min job. I also have to purchase new exhaust gaskets and clutch cover gasket. The Burly would still be cheaper in the long run, even considering the new gaskets but definitely much more of a pain to install. At this point, i'm still going with the Clutch Wiz just to avoid the extra labor.

Clutch Wiz is great easy install. Could you do both the wiz and burly and reduce the clutch pull even more?

There have been people installing them in their CVO bikes to lessen the hydraulic clutch pull when a stiffer spring has been installed.

I have an AIM VPC and have been very happy. Also, SE makes a VPC now too worth checking out.
