E50 stock clutch lightening

Giovanni Giarratana /

I've been searching and reading about lightening stock shoes but haven't seen anything on how to do it, eg grind drilling sanding etc

Maybe I'm missing a tutorial on it I'm sure this had been covered

Thanks

Re: E50 stock clutch lightening

It's out there, I've done a few write ups on it.

Re: E50 stock clutch lightening

There is no one exact way of doing it other than shaving a little weight (equally)off of each shoe....some take weight off just the outer edge (opposite) end of the pivot end...and others lighten the whole shoe but be careful because a couple grams too much and you will totally ruin a set of shoes and your clutch will never fully grab even with the lightest springs...

You need to cut a lot of for this to happen.

85g with heavier then stock springs is pretty good for a mild set-up, 75g with stock springs is also a very good option. I've gone as low as 50g which is about half or less of the stock weight.
