New Thread - VRXSE Clutch, Gearing, Slicks

It seems many of us are wrestling with clutch setup, gearing and the effect of MT/New Goodyear slicks on our setup. Does anyone else think it's a good idea to start a new thread dedicated to these questions and comments? Would be happy to get one started now.

Good idea to condense the info in 1 thread. It spread out in several now.

Any help would be appreciated.

Still breaking clutch hubs, anyone else use a V&H clutch basket? I check ever part out and can't find anything wrong. I'm at a lost would like to go to Bristol if I can get this problem fixed.

John,

I'm puzzled as to why your going through so many......
Do you frequently rebuild the pack, for the purpose of swapping order of plates & frictions?

I know if some local racers who are big on that operating procedure,the thinking is they improve the longevity & consistency of the pack, especially after it's getting tired.

If, so all the pieces ( like the beveled washer/ring, ordering the plates properly, matching the inner hub to the pressure plate in the correct (and only one of five possible positions).

Loading the rebuilt pack into the basket so that it's fully seated and the input shaft nut torqued down.
Any lapses in this might be a root cause, OTOH you have had a string of weak hub's.

Did you get the replacements from MTC as each broke?

Two of them are from MTC the other two are from HD and I installed the button myself.The clutch plates are all installed right, I always stack my clutch plates in a dummy basket and slide them in all together. I am thinking of welding up the snap ring grove up to make it stronger because that is where it cracks every time. If anybody has any sugestions I could use the help. Thanks

clutch hub

This one has really got me???? I think it's time to look further than the clutch itself. It couldn't be that many bad hubs and I doubt that you could be making a mistake each time. It really sounds like you are doing the clutch work correctly.

On edit: are you running power adders or have a BIG motor???

I just came across this thread. Before I broke second gear, I switched over to Energy One plates. I liked them a lot, but to run them the judder spring had to be eliminated. What this meant was that I had to start softening my static settings. With HD springs and 0.050 shims, I was pulling down the engine from 8,500 to less than 3,000 at the launch. These plates where much more aggessive, so I'm suspecting they could also be harder on the hub. I'm running the Finishline basket, by the way. Also, the friction characteristics of your engine oil have a lot to do with it. Some synthetics have different friction co-efficients. If you've made any changes to clutches and/or oils, go back to baseline and see what happens.

Just stray thoughts.

Sam
