  • Coil spring pressure plates

    I was getting ready to buy an EBC15% stronger diaphragm type pressure plate when i saw a coil spring conversion one for 85.00 its not a barnett it doesn't say who makes it. Anyone know about these or should i just get the ebc

    I posted those a couple weeks ago. If I needed a new spring I would chance it before I installed another diaphragm spring. I'm sure most will have other opinions.
    To my knowledge no one has tried one yet you would be the first so whatever any of us have to say is just just opinion without any first hand experience with the product. I would have to think that they are all made in China or at least made from Chinese materials.

      Not really a big if. Someone needs to try one to know. I'm sure the same was said at one time about a Barnett clutch. No one knew if it would be worth using/trying until someone did try it. We already know that a diaphragm spring is junk by design and a new one will also be junk by design after just a few miles just like the OEM.

      I was referring to the comment that Bikerron made regarding tolerances..Chinese quality control sucks in most cases.

    From what I have seen they arent that cheaper than the Barnett plate kit.

        What's the worst that can happen? You install the cheaper Chinese plate, it works pretty good for a little while then need s to be replaced.

        More down time, new gasket and replace with a Barnett plate.

        Down time, buy the generic one at 1/2 price, more down time, buy the Barnett one. In the end, it cost you 50% more for the Barnett plate and you had down time one more time than you should have. If you paid someone else to do the work, it cost you that much more. Nothing worse than wasting time and money.

        I would opt for the Barnett plate in the first place.

          Some people are on a budget everyone don't have the resources to buy the most expensive parts to keep their bikes going and for the few extra $$ than a junk OEM or EBC and about 1/2 the price of a Barnett I would rather try it than replace with the other budget option a oem or ebc. JMO

            I used an OE spring for a Warrior with excellent results.
            I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !
