Re: Clutch...Which one???
I'm running a PW clutch. IMHO, it is the best clutch for off-road applications.
I compared all the clutches, and decided against the CF for reasons given by Tim J. The CF is a racing clutch.
Was going to get a Sachs, as they are given good ratings. But Gary (PW) said he just came out with his new one (this was last March). Basically, its a Sachs clutch with a H/D organic material on the flywheel side. This allows for better slip, as the flywheel is a better heat sink. It also reduces the glazing that can occur when a feramic puck is slipped. The P/P side is feramic pucks, like a CFII. This gives you ultra-grip when the clutch is let all the way out.
I think I got that right. But I might be confused.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Gary will take the time to explain it better.
All in all, if you wheel moderately, a Sachs is probably just fine. But if you want a kick-ass clutch, then go with the PW.
