Dr Pulley HiT Clutch Empty
PostSubject: Dr Pulley HiT Clutch   Dr Pulley HiT Clutch I_icon_minitimeTue Jun 11, 2019 12:11 pm

Afternoon/Morning,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience installing the Dr Pulley clutch? My clutch need some work doing to it, probably just some general maintenance and a clean up. However, I was thinking while I’ve got the bike apart, would it be worth changing the clutch out and getting a bit of a performance upgrade at the same time?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking to break any land speed records and I’m confident that the Honda original clutch is a perfectly good bit of kit. Would be nice to hear from anyone who has had any experience with a performance clutch in the wing to help me justify the hefty Dr Pulley price!

Thanks

There is nothing "wrong" with the OEM clutch. However the transmission is the weak link in the power chain. A lot of that inefficienty is the belt slipping. Nothing to be done there due to the nature of the CVT beast. But the clutch too contributes to that inefficiency in that it can engage at too low RPM (for one's requirement) and/or slips too much at higher RPMs.

The HiT clutch is adjustable for initial engagement via changing the springs (spring tension). There is also a second set of springs which are used to engage a "lock" mechanism which causes the clutch shoes to tightly jam to the clutch bell. At that point there is no more clutch slipping.

If one rides aggressively, carries a heavy load, rides two up, has a side car or the scoot triked, then an HiT clutch would probably be a benefit. It's not a miracle in a box but it is relatively inexpensive and does offer a big improvement. Given the right combination of clutch and pillow springs one could probably set up the clutch to engage quickly enough to do wheelies.

When I got my 2nd Silverwing I tried everything to eliminate that annoying & embarrassing 'clutch squeal'. Even replaced the OEM clutch shoes.

Finally I took the old HiT kit off the garage shelf and installed it on the new bike. Problem solved.

One again: there is nothing wrong with the OEM clutch. Do keep in mind that the Silverwing was designed for a 145 lb zen monk so that he could ride and hear the cherry blossoms fall. YMMV

"Do keep in mind that the Silverwing was designed for a 145 lb zen monk so that he could ride and hear the cherry blossoms fall."

Haha, great line! Funny and probably some truth to it.

I always assumed the lack of legroom and "let there be buffeting" OEM screen were designed with shorter Japanese riders in mind -- average height of a Japanese male is 5'7" compared to 5'10" in the U.S.

That said, I have gladly made adjustments to seat and screen in return for the world-class reliability and ease of maintenance Japanese engineers baked into this machine.
