do you think heavy duty clutch make sens?

Recommended Posts

Since I have already fried 2 stock clutches offroad (on different bikes) I wonder

if it's good idea to put some heavy duty ones next time. Will it affect badly feathering/slipping techniques?

 

BTW do you carry spare clutch plates with you when riding on sand a lot?  :)

Upgrading my clutch is one of my favorite mods ...  :thumbsup:

I have seen several people post about the clutch and sand.  When I am in the sand I am grabbing more throttle. The little 250 gets eaten up by sand unless you are on it.  I find that if I feel like I need to slip the clutch in the sand I am better off downshifting. I probably turn more r's than most when I am in the woods so I generally don't have that issue.  I treat the clutch as more of a power on/off switch.

With this bike in particular it is all about removing that judder system as that is the disc the wears out and slip prematurely ...  :prof:  and stiffer springs can't hurt.

clutch is not on/off switch, feathering clutch is important technique for technical offroad,

maintaining traction in mud, sand etc.
