Performance clutch kit for a tt600???

I'm looking for recommendations on if anyone makes a performance clutch kit for my 2001 tt600. The only clutch kit I keep finding is made by EBC which I was told to stay away from. Any advice would be appreciated.

Nothing comes immediately to mind, but why would you want to avoid EBC?? Shoot, I'd personally trust anything coming from them; EBC rocks! Am I missing something about their clutches?

Hey nfakbc, can you gives us an update? My clutch is shot and i too am only finding EBC plates and springs (separately) as the only option online. Did you find an alternative or did you use EBC? If so, how did everything go?

I did, Barnette clutch does make a clutch for our bikes, the clutch plate set can be found on ebay for a little over $50 shipped and the friction plates can be ordered from Barnette (you would have to email them for the part numbers) or other sites online.

Did the barnette clutch kit come with separators too or just the friction plates? Non of the ebay options come with separators.

The steel plates never come with friction plates (at least that's been my experience).

Usually false neutrals are more the fault of the person shifting than the clutch. If I am "abusing" the bike I have to use the clutch, but mid throttle shifts I can do clutchless. I know the bad shifts are because I'm off and back into the throttle before I'm done shifting.

**Update**
I ended up ordering EBC friction plates & springs and Barnette steel plates all from ebay. However, the barnette steel plates were the wrong size and could not be fitted. Rather than having to wait another two weeks, the tech suggested that by using extremely fine sand paper, the old steel plates could be lightly sanded and be reused.

And so for the last two weeks, I've been riding with new ebc friction plates and springs and the original steel plates (lightly sanded). The results are phenomenal!! My bike feels brand new. Previously I was only able to do wheelies in 1st gear.....with the new clutch, I can now do them in 2nd and 3rd gear!.....Extremely happy with the results!

Come to think of it, to OP: Ferodo sells clutch kits for our bikes. So from all of what I've found, our choices are OEM, EBC, Ferodo, & Barnett.
