i just lost one pound of starter clutch off of my crank. the xs accelerates noticeably better, revs up more quickly. wingo!!!



pardon my ignorance but...
does this increase my redline?

did you update your valves and springs? if not, i wouldn't push the bike to any higher rpms....but you will get to the redzone a lot faster

dang, i forgot about the top side.
i did notice less choke out whenever i wrenched on the throttle though.

looking for new valves and springs especially now in the sudco catalog.

I remember when I put a race clutch on my wife's 70cc honda racer....the whole crank/clutch combo weighed 7 lbs....the race clutch moved the entire 3 lb clutch to the tranny input shaft. Talk about quick revving....can be a pain to start sometimes though with no crank mass.
