I've used them, and they are alright. i would guess 10-15% noise reduction.

You can achieve the same results cheaper with a mouse pad and some silicone caulking.

JNMDamp-Pro is not a mass loader. It is a constraint layer viscoelastic damper that converts the vibration energy into low level heat. This conservation of energy makes it 300% more efficient than traditional mass loadind tar boards
o_O ...and then this;

Viscoelastic butyl rubber - 99.4% solid content.

So essentially, it IS jus' a mouse pad despite alla fancy talk


I sprayed the inside of just the clutch cover w/a coupla coats of rubberized undercoating - cheap, quite effective, and best yet unobtrusive FTW

Troyboy sent me one for my favorite price....FREE! it is chrome on one side so you can put it on the outside of the right side of the case not likely a mouse pad is gonna last in there with all the heat these things generate inside or out of the case covers. I don't know how much these things cost but I like mine.

I put the right half cover on the outside due to clearance issue with the flower nut and stay screw.

I would imagine undercoating is gonna help except for the flower nut clearance thingy it is tight in there.


HAD THIS BEEN AN ACTUAL EMERGENCY.........

Yarp - alla that's tru (cept the heat), and one advantage of that "kit" is ofc not havin' to do anythin' like cutting to fit... mebbe... but in all honesty just about anything ya do would be an improvement - I doubt this (the fancy kit) is any better or worse than any other solution.

I just don't want anything "stuck" to the outside of my engine, as much as I ride - it'd never last.

BTW with the undercoating and the flower nut, that's one advantage of a soft, spray-on coating - coat the inside of the cover as thick as ya like and even if something contacts it, it "wears away" leaving a perfect fit w/o hurting anything, any residue has no effect (doesn't manage to get into the clutch). If yer picky - a lil acetone and a toothbrush will clean up the "smear" on the flower nut.

I used the spray on undercoating and i gotta say it is a big improvement. Easy chaep, and you can really put it on thick. Gotta get 3M tho. then i like to spray dupli color truck bed liner on the outside. nice look with the texture very durable, and it says it reduces sound, so i figure reduceing it from both sides is better, seems to be really quiet now.

Seems like there's almost always a better way to do most anything...this kit is most likely the best way as it has been formulated to do just this job. I have no clue how much the kit costs it all comes down to how much you want to spend on a $100 kit to enhance some of the cheaper features like the kill switch...I fixed my kill switch real cheap I took it off.

My mousepad has lasted two years.
Also, I would like to make a correction...use butyl caulking, instead of silicone if you want a fancy name.
