Clutch for e50 GILA ?

Ed - Dead Possums /

What e50 clutches are you guys running on your Gila kits? How long are they lasting?

I have searched. All i'm finding is KTM and MK...

Not looking to mod for a ktm clutch, and it looks as if the "indestructible" MK clutch is not so indestructible after all.

I also found these clutches but they are kickstart(regulars are out of stock) Anyone know how to mod one of these to work? What kind of material would i need to glue to the backside?

kickstart springs with redline D4

Re: Clutch for e50 GILA ?

The clutch you linked is probably the best and most expensive you can buy.

KTM or a lightened braced Treats 3 shoe is next best.

Anyone know if you can just buy the HK kevlar pads to use on a 2 shoe?

Kickstart springs are awesome, but if you don't brace the clutch they will warp your clutch to shit. The 3 shoes treats sells last me about a week or two before they deform and I have to pull them and grind on them. I think 2 shoe arms on 3 shoe clutch braced with kickstart springs is probably the best setup outside of KTM, though I've never tried that.

So there is no real solution, just keep replacing the clutch every month?

Weak.

ktm isnt really an easy solution... sure it revs to the moon and back but getting a starting system is a headache worse than tuning a 2 shoe. i went back to my 2 shoe after fucking with a ktm.

whilst we're talking about clutches, what was the advantage of the blue springs again?

Re: Clutch for e50 GILA ?

To help make it engage later, but let's stick to the topic. 2 shoe or 3 shoe and how long are they lasting.

Makes me want to sell my brand new gila kit if the clutch isn't going to last a month.

I daily drive my Gila e50 and have gone through about 4 clutches in 4 or 5000 miles. They are cheap, it is worth it. A braced oem Puch 3 shoe with kick start springs is the best relatively bolt on option. The 3 shoes treats sells have arms made of Chinese pot metal that deforms and is just terrible all around. I get a couple weeks out of them before dis assembly and grinding. I'd almost rather have a stock 2 shoe with better springs, but they warp.

The short answer is that there is no easy, maintenance free solution.

stock 2 shoe + lightening + stiffer springs + atomic 2 shoe brace

Will, how long does that last you?

Re: Clutch for e50 GILA ?

Yes, how long will the two shoe last? If the clutch is tuned conservatively. Basically is there an option to have a clutch that is low maintenance and won't need to be replaced but once every year or so..

Re: Clutch for e50 GILA ?

seems like the replacement clutches dont last long at all.

i have a three shoe stock clutch ive been running for 3-4yrs now
