Default More parts installed

I'll be thankful when the weather breaks so I can ride it instead of finding more things to change. Barnett scorpion clutch install complete....

Will do. Just waiting for the tuning kit from Mr. 801 so we can establish a base tune. Then get some break in miles and then a performance tuning session...then the dyno for a HP run!!!

What spring combo did you use with the Scorpion?...I used 3 heaviest gold and 3 lightest green I think to hold the power but the clutch effort on my old arthritic hand was over the top so I went to the Barnett diaphragm spring and billet cover plate,
however on last look at the cover plate its scored from dragstrip launches most likely so Ill soon be going back to the stock green stripe spring and stock cover plate at 114/124 the stock clutch will be adequate.
The overkill clutch was hell on my hand, this ones tolerable but with the scoring Im taking it right back.
Which springs are you using? and whats your guess on output of the engine?

As far as the springs go...that's kind of a story. They only sent me black springs assembled in the clutch. So I called and after a few minutes of interogation and me sending them some pictures they stated that they would send me the missing springs; DUH! I was unimpressed with there customer service at this point. So, I then asked for his recommendation as far as springs. I told him I would be making about 150hp/tq. He stated to use the heaviest ones. I asked what HP/TQ they were rated at and his was response was "we don't put numbers with our springs since each engine runs a little different"......I advised that I was concerned about the clutch pull and wanted it as light as possible but still hold. He then stated that I needed to use the heaviest springs, gold, especially since the Victory clutches were so hard to work on.............Needless to say I am even less impressed and disappointed. The compression tool that I bought for dis-assembly wasn't machined correctly either and I spent an hour clearancing the bushing so that it would fit over the tool and lifter shaft...I didn't even bother bringing that up to them. I am hopeful that the clutch is better than there customer service and there technical guys knowledge. The cables fit ok, but I would liked to have the actual cable, not the sheath, about a 1/4 inch shorter; but they work.

AS far as performance, I am anticipating somewhere in the 140 - 150's...time will tell that story!

if you're using the heaviest springs youll wanna be Superman or the Terminator to hold the lever in for any length of time...
How strong is your left hand?
at least the Scorpion springs are easy enough to change to suit and you don't need special tools to do it.
you shouldve got 4 sets with it but you can mix n match, one of my threads gives all the combos and total spring pressures.
With the Scorpion springs the effort is full on when the lever is all the way in.
Whereas with a diaphragm once you pass a certain point and the levers all the way in then the spring goes easy on you.

EDIT..You may find if youre big on numbers youll need the Lloydz centrifugal clutch or a very strong left hand.
Are you gonna be doing dragstrip launches too? @half_crazy is the real expert on what various clutches will handle

Not planning on too many drag strip runs, just a street beast. I think HC is running a stock clutch with an upgraded diaphram spring. I was going to do that as well, but too much idle time in the basement lended itself to the Barnett...Not a big Lloydz fan, nothing against them, just not a fan...

Its a basement build. My dad and I have done everything with the exception of the head and valve work...and the bore and re-sleeve.

"not planning on too many drag strip runs"...my suggestion is do absolutely none then because its very addictive.
A bit like having one drink and walking outta the bar to go home.
Some can do it...I never could
