I gathered that much Scottie but I appreciate the note.  I did just that.  Steel plates like... )||( ...instead of... )|||(

After two attempts to adjust everything it already feels significantly better.  Those old plates must have really been warped.  How does that happen?  I'm assuming I previously did not have it adjusted correctly.

I just went up and down my street yesterday and things felt good.  I'm sure I'll need to fine tune things.  I'll do a proper test ride today around the neighborhood but I'm not registered in Cali yet.

Thanks for the help.  Pretty interesting about using less plates.

Where did you find the Barnett plates?  My Sureflex plates are giving me trouble.  Might just have to say screw it and get a Newby clutch.

Thanks Ace.  How much better are the Barnett plates over the Sureflex plates?

I ordered them from NField Gear.  $18 a pop.  I saw in past threads here people finding them for less... I just searched "Barnett."

I have never used the Surflex plates.
The Barnett plates hold very well, and last a long time. They have a lot more surface area for holding than the stock plates, and they are thick, so they last.

I just may order some then.  I'm not impressed with the Sureflex plates.  Thanks guys.

So I'm looking at the Barnett plates right now and see they only offer 1 style plate for the RE.  Are the AVL plates the same as the 4 speed IB plates?

You need to get tha Barnett part number I specifed.
It is not listed as Royal Enfield.
It is listed as Greaves-Villiers because they also used the Albion gearbox.
AVL plates are for the 5-speed , but they should also work. They are probably thinner because of the 5 plate stack in the 5 speed.

That's it.
They apparently updated the listing to Royal Enfield.
Get them.
