Reasonably priced clutch?

Good Morning,

Well I took the 89 for a spin yesterday so I'm up to about 15 miles total on the thing... Now the problem. The clutch started slipping once everything got heated up. Great...

So now I guess I'm going to fix that as well. Oh well, The thing should be like new when done considering I've replaced just about everything on it already

I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend a clutch kit for the AX5. I went to one of the chain parts stores and they quoted me $170. I thought that was a bit excessive....

Thats about right for a full kit because it will include the slave & master, plate, throw out bearing a a few other goodies... nice thing is when your done it should shift smooth and run great..

you can also try dialaclutch.com and ebay, but they may not be too much cheaper. I got mine off of ebay 2000 miles ago and its still fine. I just made sure that the parts that came with it were from name brand places like luk.

I got mine off eBay, from gripforce-clutches. I don't remember exactly what I paid but I think it was about $120 shipped.

I'm guessing it's a LUK since I've bought a couple other kit's from this place and that's what I got.

Thanks for the replies. I'll go ahead and grab it... just wanted to do a little research 1st.

Thanks again
