I am planning on a drive line overhaul. I want to use a HIT DR Clutch w/21 gram sliders. Is that reasonable? Where is the best place to buy a new bell, belt and variator? What else will I need? Thank you
After 60K, I replaced mine with the stock one. I overhauled it by changing out the bearings and seals then re-greasing it. I saw mixed reviews on all of the aftermarket ones. 6 one way, half dozen the other way I guess.
the Polini Speed Bell, is a great Bell, it has Bigger holes for cooling, a lot lighter then Stock, built in cooling fins, 21 Grms, will give you good top end speed but much slower take off, 16 Grms would be right in between good take off and good high end now if your looking for City then 10 or 12 Grms, would be a faster Take off but not very good on High end speeds.
Now as far as the Torque Driver there's a After market one coming out soon.
as far as the variator Dr.pulley variator , Polini variator ,Malossi variator makes them, these variators are much Lighter then Stock.
as far as the Clutch Dr.pulley Hit Clutch or Polini Speed variator are a good choice and are all so a Compact Lighter Design then the Stock.
Thank you. I ride on the freeway a good bit, 55 to 65 mph and I do ride two up sometimes. Me 240lb, her 97 lb. If I were to run a 16g to 20 g with a HIT Dr Clutch would I be doing damage to the clutch shoes, excessive wear?
If the HiT clutch is working as designed, it is locked up at 2800 rpms and so whatever speed you're doing, you won't have a problem. With your weight solo and hers added on, I'd go with 18g weights. 16g weights will have the engine rpms up high all the time, and 19 to 20g weights will probably use as much gas as the 18g weights...and maybe keep the rpms up in the same range.
As for the clutch bell, I would save your money and use the old one. The Hit clutch is made to use the OEM clutch bell. At 11,000 miles, your bike is barely broken in. I was still using my OEM clutch bell on the 2007 400 I had, when I sold it at 49,000 miles and saw no reason to change it in the next 49,000 miles.
