Default 850 Can and Clutch Kit Recommendations

Looking for some recommendations on cans and clutch kits. What worked and what didn't!

Most of my riding is in the flat lands, Northern Wisconsin.

You won't gain performance from a can. A few less LBs, but no performance.

^^^ plus draw attention to yourself, as a lot of places they will hassle you if it's to loud.

Most of them sound like shit anyway. I agree the stock cans are HUGE! SLP probably makes the best one. GGB is horrible.

I wouldn't spend a dime on anything Erich Long has his name associated with. I hope it works out for ya, but I've seen nothing but regrets (first hand) from people who have dealt with him. I'd go with SLP or maybe Bikeman (not super impressed with Bikeman either) before I'd even consider SSI.

Better yet, send a PM to to @fastsleddr (Jim). He's helped me out before and I wouldn't hesitate to run anything he recommends.

Bikeman velocity trail can fit perfect and sound great...as does the powederlite (VERY LOUD - backcountry only). GGB trail and mountain also fit very well. No gain or loss noted with either. SLP Comp and Trail cans seemed to have some fitment issues...maybe not all...but trail and compettition can pulled the pipe backwards where the pedestal stand was pulled against the cross memeber on the shock towers and vibrated away there. It had to be pulled back far enough that the rubber dampener that sits on the bulkhead was nowhere near where it was supposed to be. Both instances were brought up with SLP and they promptly tried to make ammends. Good on them. Just keep a close eye in that area...

Good clutch kit....ahem....Gabes has a good one. 8)

Thanks for the input. The can was mainly for serviceability and a little more sound.

Any input on Indy Specialties clutch kits?

i personally don't like any adjustable weight that use's magnet's. we have seen these come out and do damage like bullets to hood's side panels etc.
