Torque Donut - clutch weight
We have our latest batch of clutch drum weights ready to go! I made the first few batches of these weights myself after trying many different sizes and weights to come up with what I feel is the perfect setup. Not too heavy to make cycling boring, but enough to get all the benefits we want.
Personally, I'm excited about them and I wish I'd gotten to it sooner! Loading the engine clutch basket is an old trick that has disappeared. In the old days, we weighted down the flywheel of snappy, barking TRIAL 2-strokes to keep them technically working during tough off-road sections. These days, our bikes are already smooth and torquey, and adding mass in the drivetrain brings even more of that goodness. Adding extra weight to the clutch basket gives the bike more rotational inertia. The engine spins slower, giving you better traction and a smoother power delivery feel, and it also makes the engine revs slower in gear, resulting in less stalling and greater ability to clear obstacles.
All of this makes it a great upgrade for hard enduro and technical riding. In contrast to the crankshaft load, it gives the opportunity to shoot from the clutch of a still very angry engine. It's the perfect compromise! And assembly takes only a few minutes and you can juggle with different weights, adapting to the conditions. When it's dry and sticky, and it's supposed to be fast and flat, you'll get your furious character back in minutes along with the red exhaust valve spring. How slippery and steep you need a reserve of torque at the end of the driveway and better control over the throttle, again a few minutes and you have THIS ... I put it on five seasons ago and do not take it off my 300 TE.
They fit all KTM and Husqvarna and GAS GAS models ... the clutch baskets are the same, the covers are different.
