I ran a Barnett clutch years ago in a Harley and liked it OK (dry clutch). I have seen some complaints recently about the Barnett clutch plates being warped. The result of a few warped plates in a clutch pack is reduced travel between engaged and disengaged because the warped discs use up some of the travel. The end result is either a dragging clutch or a slipping clutch, depending on adjustment.
Barnett has been around a long time. At one time they WERE considered the best. That may not be true anymore. Things change. Quality control can slip. The stock clutch plates seem to be pretty damned good, at least I haven't read of any problems with them. Wish I could say the same for the baskets. If it were me I think I would tend to stay stock.
Edit: If you do go with the Barnett be sure to let us know how they work out.
