Heads Up all you large frame VESPA tuning freaks! At last a value-for-money alternative to all those expensive reinforced clutch basket conversions! When you tune any motor for a higher performance the crankshaft, and with it the attached clutch assembly, rotates faster with more energy than before you tuned it (hopefully :-) ). This in turn creates a stronger centrifugal force around the outer edge of your clutch basket causing it to open up like the petals of a flower in the sun of a spring morning. A beautiful description of one heck of a messed up motor, with the entire content of your clutch assembly being distributed throughout the rest of your gearbox at high speed! To prevent this nightmare occurrence we have this particular clutch basket reinforcement ring available, to keep your existing clutch basket in shape under high performance conditions.
The rings themselves are precision laser cut and only need to be pressed around the outer diameter of the clutch basket and welded in position. They are provided with special cut outs around the inside to correspond with the openings around the outside of the clutch basket so avoiding any unnecessary contact with the rest of the clutch mechanism. On some 200cc models the crankcase inner may need slight modification in order to fit this item properly.
Conclusion: Value-for-money alternative to existing reinforced and strengthened clutch baskets, especially for those amongst us who like a bit of DIY!
SIP-TIP: If you have the clutch out for this job anyway, why not use the opportunity to renew the clutch friction plates? (and seperator plates as necessary)
