Default Barnett pressure plate and heavy spring upgrade

Looking for some input of the pressure plate upgrade for the clutch. Let me start by sayjng my bike is far from stock and I need to upgrade due to slipping. I was going to do Lloyds clutch but both tune guys in my area are suggesting the barnett pressure plate upgrade. Now for my question...

To anyone that has done this how much more firm is the lever pull? This is my biggest concern with going this route. I ride in the city almost every day and get stuck in traffic a lot so I dont want a supper heavy clutch.

Its fairly heavy but managable.
I had a Scorpion but it was over the top , went back to what you propose , but my old arthric hand wasnt liking it so as my engines under 130 horse and stock clutch will handle it Ive gone back to stock 2010 green spring.

Before you do anything ensure you have enough freeplay by far its the most common cause of slippage and fried clutches.
What horse are you making?

Thanks for the information, it really helped me with my options. I have made the decision to go with the big boy Lloyd's variable due to the clutch pull (I ride in city traffic a lot). Also I'd like to up the motor someday so this way the clutch will be done and ready for that upgrade. I have adjusted my clutch every spring and keep an eye on it through out the season, so that shouldn't be the problem. I did get my bike used and am not sure what oil has been put in it it's hole life so that may be a problem also.

yeah the Lloydz variable is the ultimate best of both worlds
I see your sig now and mods.
Ive just burnt the midnight oil till daybreak fitting VM1's , Lloyds filter, and discovered the mufflers I thought were Stage One are actually restriction free🙂
540am here and Im hitting the sack cos I aint got a short extension to tension the head bolts.
My XC will be copping a Pro Maximus Dyno Tune as soon as Fred can get me in.
Any idea what yours is putting out, as they sound similar in setup?

Mine hit 110hp and 113tq at the rear tire but the clutch slipped in the mid and high range, and it showes on the graph. But ive also found some post saying that the VM1 cams do better with a more restricted exhaust and the power cones I put on are just hollow tubes. I just finished up making my own mufflers so I need to swap them out and see if i like them and if i do I will get it re-tuned after the clutch is broken in and see where it all lands after that.
