    Start searching twomanyxs1b's posts but changing the complete clutch to a later model is the hot tip? Generally considered that 78-80ish are the best?

    I believe I have the clutch parts from the 1972 I parted out.
    Hub has the part number 256-16371 and basket has part number 256-16311. The pressure plate does not have any number I can see on it.

    I did compare it to the pressure plate from the 1982 and see the 1982 has splines that mesh with the splines of the hub but the pressure plate that I believe is from the 1972 does not have those splines.

    If interested let me know. Located in Central NY.

    I could attach pictures in needed.

    I swapped out my original XS2 clutch assembly, the whole thing front to back for a later model assembly. Here is a look at the clutch that came in the XS2, and a detailed look at why a later clutch assembly would be more robust.

    Installing a 1975 later model improved clutch assembly in my XS2. beginning at post # 1155
