So Ok, I've started using a Tomos Jammer and it's been pretty sick after giving it a slight amount of prep.
Setup is a35 bottom end, stuffy crank with c4 clearance bearings, 64cc airsal kit (no casematch), doppler er2 reed, MLM 15mm SHA intake, CDI with Parmakit box, 15mm SHA with a #75 jet and solid #2 metal slide, full mesh filter element with Minarelli Style Airbox, HUNTER PIPE, balanced 1st and 2nd gear, lathed clutch bell, 2nd gear has the $33 shoes with stock green spring 9.5lb spring. I'm running 26x24 gearing on a 3" knobby tire streetmate rear wheel. I'm hitting somewhere around 43-45mph, but in a REAL hurry.
I threw it into my bike with no prep and the lightest springs from the factory and it was OK. I was having some issues with erratic engagement so I pulled everything apart to take another look at what was going on.
First thing i noticed was that the bolt heads very lightly were hitting my clutch bell.
I added the shim that comes with the clutch, buttoned everything up and started to test. I was not very happy with how the transmission felt after that so I opened everything up again and took another look.
I decided to ditch the shim and take down the heads of the bolts that had been hitting the clutch bell previously. No problem here, just use a bench grinder and take them down the slightest bit until they are flush with the face of the hub.
Next, I noticed that 1 out of the 3 spots for shoes was a tighter than the others and wasn't allowing one of the shoes to engage easily. No problem here either, I grabbed a hand file and filed away the top and bottom plates that sandwich the hub until a clutch shoe had smooth, free movement.
I reassembled everything and greased the area on the hub where the shoes lock into and we were back in business.
Bike rips, absolute blast, love it. Great take off, blip shifts into second wonderfully. More than fast enough for a city ripper.
I'm still testing this with the lowest engagement RPM springs, but I think I'm going to open up my transmission tonight to see how things look and to toss in the middle RPM springs to see how the bike likes it.
Does anyone have any clutch spring recommendations other than what come with these stock?
I know the malossi ones for the puch jammer are like NEXT LEVEL compared to stock and was wondering if anyone had any leads!
I'll probably go picking through what we have any see if anything works myself, but I figured I'd start a thread about this sort of thing.
If anyone has cool and fun experiences with this clutch, feel free to post here. I'll be adding some pictures and stuff later once I tear my trans cover off.
