Who is making the best clutch?!?!?
Alright I am new to greenhulk.net but it seems like a great so far! Quick question though....who is making the most RELIABLE CLUTCH right now, i am just looking for reliability right now. Rotax Racing makes one but is it going to be reliable and do they have any guarantees on it or what?

Welcome to the site!
Unfortunately there are no guarantees. There have been problems with the Rotax Racing cluth's in the past, but the issues were due to improper installation. We were putting too much tension on them.
I think the best clutch setup is the Rotax Racing clutch with no shims installed. (Shims are put in place to increase tension)

Jerry, I know you have alot of pull now that you have your own website. what do you think of instead of a solid ceramic disk, using two thinner ones adhered to a piece of aluminum or stainless. it would be the same thickness as a stock disk except if it were to break, it wouldn't shatter into alot of pieces. it would just break and stick to the steel piece in the center.

Good point Mike!
Did you hear the same rumor I heard? A little birdy told me that someone is trying to have such an animal made. Time will tell!

my last one lasted a long time and i never used any shims

By shims are you referring to the ceramic washers? I'm in the process of doing mine as we speak. Also has anyone actually used this so called Isoflex grease and Super lube thats called for in the instructions? I called my dealer for a price and they was $65 and $35 for both respectivly. I'm gonna have to call BS on this one even though i think it needs to be a special grease. HELP!

no , not the ceramics. the small steel washers included with some kits

Hmmm.... mine is the update kit for my 03 GTX SC. (which doesn't have the ceramics stock) I wonder if this is something i can do ? Plus the same grease issue. I wanna ride this weekend , it's been since the 4th of july and my season is running short here in maryland. I don't want this stupid Iso-crap grease to hold me up.

Well I deal with Rotax, glen perry, and skat trak, PPG did my SC and no problems thus far, and have hard hrs too.

Yeah I enjoy playing in 12-15 foot breakers in the ocean! LOL This is the only problem i've ever had. I've only rolled it (gently) twice also. The big thing for me now is to find out what grease people are using on the needle bearings and blower housing collar. I'm waiting to find out so i can install the parts and get in the water by the weekend.
