Welcome Gary. I never heard of a single plate clutch for a Wing. Is this like a car type clutch? If so, it won't work in a wet type system like a Goldwing, the reason wet type clutches have loads of plates and heavy springs is to prevent the clutch slipping from the oil. A car type clutch wouldn't be able to grip the friction plate dipped in oil.

As a point of fact, an automotive type clutch running in oil will work, I had a 1950 Hudson Hornet (305cu. in. inline 6) that had one. Hudson had a single plate oil bath clutch. The disk was kinda odd, it was a steel disk with what looked like the old corks from bottle caps stuck all over it.
