Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

The two shoe I've been riding still has plenty of life left in it and wondering what kind of performance gain others got on the two shoes with orange springs. And if any how many degrees did you unscrew the screws after installing?

What revs would you say the three shoe is grabbing and what's the two grabbing at?

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

they would work great. put them in and back them out at least 720 degrees if not more to start with. go for a ride, take off cover and adjust, rinse and repeat.

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

Do you need to drain the tranny fluid every time you take it off, and refill it every time you put it back on?

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

yup. welcome to the world of clutch tuning.

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

if you lay the bike all the way on its side, you dont have to drain it, just top it off

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

Cool, but will it grab earlier or later than three shoe?

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

yeah i just leaned my bike over to adjust the springs, draining fluid is such a waste of time.

i have mine 2 turns or 360 degrees in from flush with the edge of the clutch shoe. i turned them another 180 and didn't like it, so i backed it back to 360 in. i haven't experimented more, it seems to pull hella good like this. altho maybe 540 was not enough and 720 or more would be better to let it really get into the powerband b4 it grabs.

creature lee (zach) used to do this on his 1 speed and take off like a rocket but he would bust thru clutches soooo fast, it seems almost not worth it unless u have lots of spare ones, or the bike is seldom ridden.

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

Guessing earlier, but anyone ridden both? How much of a difference? Chris, Elliot?

I think I went all the way in a 900' out. I need to play with it more, but its running pretty good so far.

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

IMO it really depends on what your setup is and how much abuse the clutch can handle. Ideally you would have the clutch engage about 1k before you "came onto your pipe". This would allow the clutch to fully engage right before the powerband. Granted with some of the high rpm powerband pipes out there this would just destroy the clutch lining. When I was fiddling around with a 2 shoe in my rigid I found that between 360 and 720

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

chris,

I got my engine together and threw that clutch in there that you helped me with. I can hear/feel, the clutch pads very very slightly rubbing on the drum. Is this a bad thing? Should I screw them in another 180 degrees? It won't be warm enough to ride for months so I can't really do any testing, just over thinking at this point. A high of 8 tomorrow, sweet!

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

So the clutch pads are dragging on the clutch drum? That has nothing to do with the springs...

You either need to file a little more material off the pads or possibly shave of a little bit of the stoppers/spacers on the end of the pads. You don't want the pads to be rubbing, skimming is fine.

Re: Two Shoe Clutch and Paz's Springs

yes, skimming is more how I would describe it. This is a good/correct thing?
