Lightbulb clutch options

ok so on my 2012 vegas 35k miles. I recently had to remove the primary and change the shifter fork cause it was getting hung up and not shifting. put it all back together and shifts great. like a new bike. I also chaged my oil from the victory to the amsoil. haven't put 300 miles on it yet and now the clutch is slipping. clutch is adjusted properly. so im thinking the clutch was on its last breath. im looking to get a new clutch but wondering whats a good bang for my buck . im looking at the scorpion clutch from WD but 600 for a clutch ok but is it worth it. has anyone installed and ran these clutchs before

thanks for the help.

go back to Vic oil and give it 500 miles to stop slipping

Just get the normal clutch and you'll be very happy I doubt you have the big power for the scorpion clutch

I have some good mods and tuning. 35k on the original clutch and I ride it hard. yeah the oil is probably making it slip now but only cause the clutch is probably on its way out. im gonna try to change the oil back and see what happens but im gonna end up putting a clutch in it sometime this year. cause of the mileage

ok so I went and talked to my buddy who works on vics. he says that yeah the oil is causing my clutch to slip but that's only cause my clutch is worn out. he says the clutchs normally wear out around 30 to 40k. so im gonna order a clutch. he did say he has installed a scorpion clutch its a hard grabbing clutch but it is hard to pull the clutch handle in cause its a stiffer clutch. he said a stock clutch would work fine in mine and should last another 30 to 40k. but they want 500 just for the plates. lol ummm... no I mentioned the carbon fiber clutch he said it will work fine but might eat the basket up. so im kinda torn on what to get. I would love to know what clutch if any one has use and the pros and cons.
