lightweight, open, strong, extra clutch noise and cool looking. Try Cycle Cat, STM or Speedymoto from Motowheels. Over time I've had the open Ti Cycle Cat (about $190), Motowheels brand ($ I forgot), for my 916 I changed from red Speedymoto pressure plate to blue anodized with red buttons from Cycle Cat. To show it off I'm going to get the two wire Titanium STM clutch cover. To me its like the thong of clutch covers. Depends too on what bike you have. Monsters are the best for showing off, STs are good, 916 style and SS are not so good. Sometimes the covers come up on the used market, if your patient, deals are out there. Lastly, there is such a variety of designs available you have to visualize one on your bike, better yet put it up to your pressure plate. For example, my Cycle Cat titanium clutch cover looked awesome on my full fairing Supersport, it had the blue pressure plate. I removed it when I sold the bike, thinking it would look as good on my 916, wrong. It looked terrible with either a red or blue pressure plate. I sold the cover to a buddy of mine who has a 999R Fila and he loves it. I eventually went with a half cover with material that matched the stock rear sets on the 916. I had the red Speedymoto pressure plate on. Eventually the cover looked boring and lacked bling like my Supersport so I changed from the red Speedymoto pressure plate to the Blue Cycle Cat, to see if that helped. It did in terms of the blue standing out more, but the clutch cover still looked dull. I thought I would wind up with a black cover, but the whole intent was to show the pressure plate more because on the 916 style bikes the fairing covers most of the unit. Finally, I've decided on the above two wire STM. Doesn't look like much in terms of protection but after almost killing myself in a motorcycle crash on my now totalled 600RR Honda, who cares about the protection part. I think its strong enough to do the job in a slower lowside or tip over. Shit, if you don't hit anything low sides I found are less damaging than tip overs anyway.

Sorry for the long response, but these are some of the little things that keep you interested when your messing around with your bike. Good luck and I think somewhere on this site or at least in the archives there are pictures posted of member's clutch covers.

Clutch nut..

I am starting to re-think my carbon clutch cover. After seeing a guy at the AMA race this weekend have his nut loosen and his stock cover keeping all the parts there to fix.

My carbon cltch cover wouldn't have kept it in place!

LOL!!! Hey, I have this spare star here with your name on it...!

I'm just wondering if brinkdakid could write in complete words and sentences. When I see someone typing like this, i don't even read the rest of the post and move on.

Brink, you are dealing with an older, wiser crowd here...please save the ebonics for the gsxrkawicbrsix forums!

Well, I'm impressed. That was better. You at least spelled out the words this time.

I see no change in your profile, however.

Oh and here's a tip: If you are new at a forum, it's probably best not to start out by being an asshole. It will make a huge difference on how you are treated and the answers to questions you will get. You reap what you sow. Just a thought.

Just think, if this were 1999 we'd be having to decipher 'leetspeak'.

Ahhh, just gotta love 'internet ebonics'.
(I'm sure we're about to find out that this guy's majoring in English at his university, and he only types this way to save time, yadda yadda...or is there a new standard reply?)

Carbon Kevlar

Carbon Kevlar clutches are very strong also and weigh very little. Just a regular Carbon clutch is really only for decoration, under stress they shatter.

How come the number of posts don't change.. Chucks stays at 677 and Brinkydink stays at 11.

They have asked for your profile so we know whether to point you toward paying in USD.. Euros or baht. If it's 20 USD... it's bout a gazzillion baht. If you check the bottom of the front page you'll see this is a world wide site. Unfortunately YOU know where you are but our crystal balls have been busted by too many hours being mashed up on the tank in the twisties.
