What are the parts needed. There are many plates, which one do I need. And I have a technical question, if the clutch cable is too loose what effect does it have on riding and on the transmission, and what if the clutch cable is to tight what will that do. Would having the cable too tight or too loose burnout the clutch.

Thank You

Having the clutch cable to tight could make the clutch slip under load because it is acting as tho you are slightly pulling on the lever. Having it to loose will make for hard shifting because you are not fully disengaging the clutch. They are both hard on components. and yes after time it could lead to a failure. Proper adjustment is very important. As for the parts you need i am sure you can buy a clutch rebuild kit. I have not done it on this bike but i am sure it can be found.

Has anybody here used Barrent clutch kit, or any other aftermarket clutch kit that maybe better than the OE?

Clutch parts

I don't think Barnett makes clutch plates for the 109. Cycle House does:

You won't know what parts you need until you take it apart.
Just from memory, the OEM parts seem to work out best. Your "steels" are probably OK, may need a light sanding. The fiber plates can be purchased individually. The wave washer should be replaced since it's apart.
PM Big Papa, he knows these clutches well. Here's his how to:
