Samurai Clutch Help

I couple months ago I replaced the cluch in my sami. From the first day, it felt weak. I barely had to push the clutch to disengage it.

Well, it is trashed now. It does OK on the street, but wont do much but spin when wheeling. I had to winch myself up a slight incline yesterday to get out of the back yard.

I can probably get this thing warranteed, but I am hoping to hear of a fix for it.

Are there any tricks to get more pressure? I had the flywheel surfaced.

how about centerforce? I dont like dropping that much coin into a rig like this, but I will if it is required.

Re: Samurai Clutch Help

When you had the flywheel resurfaced.......did you have both surfaces done??? If not, the clutch disc won't be able to touch the flywheel surface like it supposed to and it will eventually slip.

Re: Samurai Clutch Help

Many guys say centerforce sucks. I like my stock clutch.

Re: Samurai Clutch Help

What do you mean "both surfaces"? I guess I didnt pay that much attention, but I have never seen 2 different surfaces on a flywheel.

I have another flywheel to use. I may have some custom work done to it. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Samurai Clutch Help

never mind.

2 seconds after I posted that last reply, I knew what you were talking about.

I need to get the mounting surface (with pins) surfaced down.
I will have him surface a tad extra.

Re: Samurai Clutch Help

Have someone with a pure stock flywheel measure the step distance with a good depth mic , I seem to remember it being about .080" or so . There may be a spec in the fsm too , that spec is real important on how tight the plate can be clamped and also in it's release distance .

Re: Samurai Clutch Help

I checked my flywheel and the step is about .081" But I can't find in FSM how much can be cut to clean up. Anyone know the spec.

Thank you in advance.
