centerforce clutch

How many of you guys have used Centerforce clutch in your rig???
I was wondering if the extra $$ is worth.

Re: centerforce clutch

I'm running the Petroworks dual-composition clutch. About the same price as a centerforce, but IMHO better. It has an organic side (for slipping) and feramic pucks on the other (for excellent grip). Pucks glaze easy if slipped, something that is done a lot off-road. So the side that slips most is traditional organic material. But when you let the clutch all the way out, it grabs like a latino at a NYC pride march. (whoa, that was way outta line[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img])

Centerforce makes awesome clutches. I have one in my VW Karmann Ghia, but it's a street clutch. They are meant to dump it and go, not slip it.

Re: centerforce clutch

Hey Tim, why didn't you go back with a factory Suzuki Clutch? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Just razzin' ya -- We agree on this one --that Petroworks clutch is THE WAY to go. I had a Centerforce once- wouldn't go back with it for the type of riding I do. I put one of P'work's clutches in a buddy's rig, and it is worth every penny IMHO.

HTH,

Re: centerforce clutch

Oh gawd, you're right. I'm deviating with keeping it all Suzuki![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Hmmmmm....what kind of clutch is in the Suzuki Delivery Vans?

Just kidding. I guess there is only so far I can go with the "purist" crap. But hey, I'm trying![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: centerforce clutch

I had a petroworks clutch that lasted less than a year, and I was only running 30" tires at the time. I now use just a plain NAPA clutch kit that only cost me $100, and I love it. It has a 1 year unlimited warranty too.

Re: centerforce clutch

I am running a Auto zone Clutch Disc $37.00 and am pleased so far and have wheeled it hard I just Cleaned (scuffed) up the Pressure Plate with a piece of emory cloth and reused it. But I am runnung a GRS2 with 5.12 R&P's that takes alot of strain off the clutch. But I figure I can buy 3 discs for the price of one aftermarket clutch. It's been in there a year and saw alot of trail and so far so good.
