Default Re: Clutch Pucks upgraded anyone?

yes running different material will make an improvement along with what the other guy was saying of the clamping force.

the two parts on the clutch that are responsible for the link up are the clutch disc (in this case the gear with the pucks) and the pressure plate (the disc)

normally on a car these two can be upgraded to handle 800+hp using dual, even triple disc clutch packs. however....

these motors are limited to what is REALISTICALLY possible.

sure you could replace the factory spring with a valve spring, but are you actually gonna be able to pull that clutch handle? or will that cable keep from snapping?

these bikes should have come with something that is ACTUAL friction material rather than the wanna be stuff they gave us.
