Just bought a1983 gl 1100 interstate. Need to replace the clutch. Was wondering where the best place was to get one and which brands to buy and/or stay away from.

I just replaced clutch pack friction discs on my 76 with EBC brand. Looked like a quality product. Purchased from Amazon. Worked out well. Question. Why do you think the clutch needs replacing?

The guy I bought it from had it at the shop and that was what they said. Once you get to 3rd gear it slips when you start to give it throttle.

It may not help, but you could try adjusting the cable before you put a clutch in it.

I am going to check that for sure first but just wanted to know if there were ones to stay away from if I had to order.
