    I went with a McLeod that I purchased through Brewers. Haven’t had any issues with it.

    I went with this kit specifically, my motor is close to stock so it fit my needs. F0B161E3-0609-4D4E-8764-947A6FCCD6AC.png

    Sammy did you have the fly wheel cleaned and surfaced. Just asking.

    I also ran an RXT twin plate unit from McLeod, no issues with it. The difference in pedal feel is amazing. Had a centreing issue with the bellhousing that pretty much destroyed it, so Ive now gone with a custom twin plate setup from Western Clutches, local mob here. It is even better than the McLeod unit, but also a fair bit pricier.
