When I upgraded to a VT3 my clutches started to slip.

I just think the tons of standing burnouts, launches, etc. took it's toll, and then with over 600whp it started to slip.

I replaced the stock clutches with SSP Kevlar, and we had issues, then eventually had to replace the transmission, so I bought a used one with low miles and just kept the stock clutches, so far it's holding well.
