The current range of MALOSSI maxi scooter clutch systems can truly be termed as state-of-the-art. The way a centrifugal clutch works is relatively simple. When a specific rpm has been reached by your motor, the centrifugal forces created, force the clutch shoes to move outwards and connect with the clutch housing, so causing it also to rotate and transfer the power created by the cylinder to the rest of the gearbox.
The Delta Clutch offers large, friction-optimised contact surfaces which greatly reduce clutch-slip. The overall weight of the unit is also reduced which ensures a more agile motor with much improved pick up and acceleration. The internationally patented adjustment system, consisting of a railed pivot mechanism, allows fine tuning of the specific pick up RPM without having to replace the springs every time. The rail can be adjusted to three separate positions, affecting the relative strength of the springs. For a stronger set up, stiffer springs are also included. This kit can be considered as the icing on the cake for motor projects that already include other MALOSSI performance orientated components such as the cylinder etc. Yet another high end part which only adds to the ultimate MALOSSI racing experience!
MALOSSI Maxi Delta Clutch System :
Three-shoe race clutch, adjustable through differing spring strengths and shoe pivot mountings, two different sets of springs are included with the kit, large and robust frictional surfaces, clutch basket made using tough PO 4 steel, anti vibrational welding technique, dynamic centrifugal balancing, nitrate-hardened surfaces (similar to high quality tooling)
SIP-TIP : To make replacement easier do not forget to order a new clutch holding nut, a clutch holding tool and a suitable cleaning liquid.
MOTORETTA May/June 2002 : A special feature of the Delta Clutch is the added shoe-pivot support created between the pivots themselves. This prevents them from being bent out of line and misaligning the shoes and the drum.
