This performance orientated clutch basket is the answer from MMW to all the potential problems that can be experienced with standard clutch baskets at higher engine revolutions. The solid construction of this clutch basket eliminates the need for replacement of the existing clutch basket every 1200 miles due to the inevitable wear and tear that original items are exposed to in performance enhanced motor set ups.
The MMW clutch basket is precision CNC milled from solid aluminium alloy and then further hardened using a nitration process. The main body of the clutch basket is noticeably thicker and sturdier in construction than the original PIAGGIO item and the production quality is up to the usual high MMW standard. There is enough room in these baskets for a plate assembly containing three or even four friction plates, according to their, and the plain plates' respective thicknesses. From the point in time that we equipped our SIP VESPA GS150 with the QUATTRINI 177cc M1L performance cylinder, we also have the MMW clutch basket available for the VESPA GS150 and 160 models.
Conclusion: A valid alternative to the COSA II clutch assembly.
SIP-TIP: Do not forget to order a new push rod, castle nut and also a new caslte nut locking cage washer for reliable and enduring use of this clutch unit. Strengthened clutch plates are also worth considering.
SIP community user 'Stossi' (on Art. No. : 93211900) : A very high standard of construction. It's promise of reliability is honestly kept-a must when more power needs to be transmitted to the back wheel (permanently).
