Never hear of that before. Can you link to pictures or video of the different edges on the plates?I know exactly what your problem is. Mine did the exact same thing plus hard shifting. When you put the plates in the basket you need the rounded edges touching. Take all of them out and feel the edge of the clutch plates and metal plates. One edge is sharp and the other is round. Put the metal plate in round edge up and then clutch disk in round edge down. Then metal up, clutch down and so on so on. I promise you'll notice a world of difference. Mike at Mo' Power told me to do that when i had the same issue a few months ago and has been smooth ever since
Is it only Barnett plates?
No difference in the edges on the SMR plates I use.
No mention of edges here:
