    & running the correct lube is the life of the clutches & that’s why it gets 10 pages of talk. If I ever must change my clutch pack I’ll go back OEM, will go Barnett for cable when is time. Let us know how it’s doin geo bob

    Never had a issue with my clutch until deciding to try Amsoil. Figured since it was readily available, and not too costly, I'd give it a go. That didn't last long.... within a very short period, the clutch started slipping. So I take the bike home, drain it out, replace it with the Rotella I had been using, ran it for a short bit, then drained it once more to get any left-over out. Am currently trying the Spectro 20/40 and haven't had any trouble with it.

    This is too funny. So my slipping barnett clutch pack could have been from the motorcycle oil I used for the first time. I fired it today and so far so good. Could not ride but it shifted fine and had plenty of free play. Should be ok but I let you know. Still working on the utube video.

    We had the bike out for a long ride today and the stock clutch pack worked wonderfully. Anyone want to by a slightly used barnett clutch pack. Still looking for software to edit the video I made of changing the pack out. Any suggestion

    @Geobob Hang on let me get the facts correct. So u changed oil brand & noticed clutches slipping so changed pack then had all those issues causing u to replace new Barnett pack with factory & @ same time switched back to oil you normally ran & no slippage now. So it actually could’ve been a diff oil that was ur original problem? Man I hope that wasn’t it but am glad u got ur baby back baby back baby back & a plate of ribs yummy yum yum. Thanks a lot bob U made every1 hungry

    At 2k the Vic oil got drained, been Amsoil ever since. Currently at 35k and 2 years of cams run hard. Nary a problem.

    Old post I know.

    but do you happen to have the lifter rack part number? I assume you mean the rack assembly. I’m trying to find one for my 09 Jackpot but need. Pre 08 because the Barnett spring doesn’t work well with the newer rack assemblies. From what I’ve been told by conquest customs.
    I have cams torque tubes under drive pulley 109hp 124.88 tq. Clutch slips even after backing off the adjustment (loosened it up some). Running Victory Oil

    #16 is what I used. Had to grind the length down a bit.

    The injun part was from a 16’ model, it was the same year model as my Gunner. On my Gunner I am using the part with Barnett discs, pressure plate & spring and the OEM sealed bearing from Victory.

    Thanks. I’ll look into the parts. I believe from 08 and up used the same parts for the clutches.


    I’m not sure why the rack needs changed but Scott at conquest customs said their have been issues using the Barnett spring on 08 and newer bikes.

    the pre 08 rack was a lot more robust, the 08 and up are a "cheaper" design and thus more prone to failure when you get the HP/TQ up on these bikes.

    I think there are a few post here of the lifter rack failing with upgraded components. Jeb’s post about one failing on his vision comes to mind but I can’t seem to find the post.

    What does hp/tq have to do with lifter rack failure?

    The only force applied to it is not rotational.
