I am doing an official test on the clutch treats is selling called the:
I installed it on Rodney's old Cobra with a Treats Reed Kit, CDI, treats pipe, 14t/42t gearing, e50..
Here is the run down:
Stock it basically feels like a standard 3 shoe puch clutch. It really feels smooth though and if you were running something like a gila and or a HPI internal rotor CDI the stock spring setup would probably rip..
Since I dont have a hyper beast 80cc kit or anything of the likes the clutch performance for a 210 pound rider is not totally cutting it IMO..
So I cut 4 loops off of the clutch spring and man was it a bitch getting it back on.. cool thing is i never had to pull the clutch to snip the spring..
So 4 loops was a noticeable difference and it rips up fairly steep hills now.. sort of feel like the KTM mod now.. I feel like It could probably use maybe 2-3 more loops cut off as 4 loops increased the sliping from 20mph engagement to 25ish.. I really want it to slip all the way to 30mph as thats where my pipe starts to really hit..
So it is an expensive ass clutch and I only purchased it because I have had terrible experience with the three shoe clutches since I ride up steep hills everyday.. I need a clutch that will last longer and I really believe this may be the answer to the hill climb effort..
So my next steps are to get better gear oil so there is less of a difference to cold start and warmed up.. It performs where i want it when its cold so I am going to see if SAE30 works as I read that should help with the consistency.. Also I am purchasing a 13t front sprocket and a tomos clutch spring to do some more tests.. I think I could easily go down to a 13t but i'll loose more top end.. so right now I am going to mess with a tomos clutch spring and see if i cant get this thing to engage even later.. this way I still have the original spring that now engages at 25 and possibly another later engaging spring.. hope this helps clear up the bs about this clutch.. it works and has lots of potential imo.. id say if your looking for reliability this might be a simple answer..
