Suggestions for an aftermarket clutch

I am on my second clutch with only 15k miles. Does anyone know of any clutch options that may improve the life of my clutch. I ride extremely hard and frequently drop the clutch at high rpms. This is my fourth BMW over the years and and I have never given into the coments about this brand being only for conservative old men and gentle sport touring. My dealership doesn't really have any sugestions for me other than to replace the clutch every year or so. Is there a high performance clutch option out there other than the slipper version for $1500? I would be very interested in hearing anyones suggestions. Thank you.

Barnett clutches do have a strong reputation.

Look at the end of this site:

I have that STM clutch, but still waiting for new plates. There is primary springs up to 220kg. And with secondaru spring they adjust the slippin feature. I should get it done tomorrow, but who knows. It looks like this:


You should get those from your local STM-dealer.

Based on your claim, I'm afraid you're going to have to get used to paying for clutches regardless of which brand you buy. You may get a few more miles out of an aftermarket brand but I suspect not many.
