I got offered a dry clutch conversion for my cb450/500 motor for pretty cheap. What's the benefit of something like this? If it's only worth it for a race bike I'll spend the money elsewhere.
I liked the one on my old Duc but mainly for the cool factor.

not an expert on the topic, but i read up on it a while back. dry clutches are supposed to have more grip. i actually remember hearing that they have up to 7 times the friction of a wet clutch. a friend of mine and i both have them on our bikes and they are great. of course, what i read could be complete bullshit, and i'm sure someone with more knowledge will let us both know!

If it is cheap enough I would get it for the cool factor. For street use I wouldn't bother, the stock clutch will work just fine.

So is $100 and a 6-pack a good deal? He's got a set of barnet bits&pieces for it that are part of the deal.
He's a buddy of my dads, I assume that's why the deal. The only thing missing he says is a guard so your toe doesn't get mangled but I can machine that up myself.

Guess I better go buy so good beer......

get it. If you don't want it it shouldn't be hard to sell.

If you don't get it let me know. I'd be interested in at least seeing it. Team Hansen Honda sells them for CB450s and I think it's a lot more than 100.

I'm gonna try and get my hands on it this weekend, somehow I doubt it's as pretty Hansen's setup..
