Clutch tuning on a Puch


I just bought a 1986 Puch Maxi that I am having a ball with.

Did a small amount of tuning and she is running almost 30mph on the flats. Just followed the service bulletin on converting from 1.5 to 2 HP.

I do have a question. Have heard a lot about clutch tuning and, although I have searched, I cannot seem to find a good explanation on what I need to do and look for.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

You get thick springs and turn them in turns in from flush

You can grind metal away and use lighter springs .

Both make later engagement keeping you into the power at take off and on hills

Thank you. I have been reading a lot and have seen many of your most informative postings, Thank you.

Not sure I understand what you mean by the first two sentences.

I seem like they contradict each other. Thicker springs or light springs with grinding them down accomplishes the same thing?

I thought I read that you should use weak springs and thick motor oil in the tranny but read tonight to use 0-20 synthetic.

Again thanks for any advice or help.

No grind down the metal on the shoes so you can use less spring
