Hi, new to this forum, looking to buy a decent set of rear clutch weights for a 1988 Elite ES I picked up recently. One of the pads is trashed. Looks like it’s a 97mm clutch, was looking to buy new but can’t find a set anywhere online, even eBay. Anybody here have a decent set of weights or a full 97mm clutch assembly they’d be willing to sell? Thanks!

More than likely JW parts plus can repad it. It's pretty much a Spree clutch, so I see no reason why they can't repad it for ya.

This clutch is a rare bird. Its the two-shoe design only used in the 88-90 SB50.

Sorry, just updated, I’m in MN. Appreciate the advice, I’ll contact JW parts about repadding.
Thanks!

The process for repadding is pretty much the same even on the 2 shoe, they pull the springs to loosen, put it in some kind of vice, remove old material, re-glue and repad. I'll bet anything they'll do it.
