    When you have a clutch replaced does the mechanic just change the presure plates or the whole unit. My 06 sporty is going to the garage for a clutch and shoe for the primary chain tesioner and it is olny costing me 360.00 bucks parts and labor to me sounds like a good deal.

    Mine just had the whole clutch changed out and cost more than double that. I think you have a fair deal going for parts & labor for just plates, though. They still have to take out the clutch disks and re-assemble, then adjust the clutch. With experienced guy/girl, I hear it shouldn't take too long either. Good luck with it! Mine was a huge improvement over stock parts...so far.

    It's not the same bike but a stack of friction disc's are $160 MSRP for my 2009 Dyna. Whatever you install, I would also include a new spring diaphragm. For $30 more (no labor since he has to R&R old one) it is not worth the risk of destroying your new stack. Just my opinion. Others may disagree.

    Maybe old fashioned, but it was common deal in automotive circles to replace the diaphram due to weakened pressure plate action and think of every clutch/shift activity you push and release it over its' life. Why not since your in there already?
