So I’m considering the “fly clutch” that Malossi makes. I have reached out to Uncle Fester as he is running one in his 2016 burgman.
Aparently it reacts differently than the standard Malossi 5 pad clutch. I’m going to replace the bell so the mate up correctly.
‘Your thoughts and expertise is appreciated.
Malossi only makes one clutch type for the Burgman's 400, The " Malossi Maxi Fly clutch ", the "Maxi" means is made for larger scooters applications and is pre-calibrated to the specific scooter/application, IOW, is not user adjustable, You can buy clutch and bell set = "Malossi Fly Clutch System" (Link above) for about $200
or buy them separate. BTW the Malossi is 5 shoes just like oem.
I believe "Uncle Fester" is running/using a Dr Pulley "Hit Clutch", is fully adjustable for both engagement and lock rpms, eliminates "most" of the clutch slippage noise at engagement. BTW, it's a 4-shoe clutch. From what I read and little use experience very good quality part, Dr.Pulley does not sell/make a clutch bell. Hit clutch retails for approx. $370 USD
, some around Dr. Pulley HIT Clutch 261302 - Burgman 400cc (buggypartsnw.com)
otherwise slow boat from china.
If you do a lot of slow stop/go driving, the hit clutch (properly adjusted) would probably be a better option, but if you just want similar to stock operation with a better/cheaper clutch (IMO/IME), hard to beat malossi.
If you decide on the hit- clutch, I would definitely use a Malossi cluctch outer/bell Malossi Clutch Bell for Suzuki Burgman 400 K7-present  - $89.97 : Scooterpartsco.com
, better part than oem and approx 60% cheaper
Another factor to consider is these are wear/tear parts, no warranty beyond shipping damage
