    What puts most strain on our clutches??

    Hi....

    What's putting the strain on the clutches??

    Is it mainly due to unhooking or does drag racing do it??

    Thanks ian

    I would have to say, that coming un-hooked plays a major part in clutch failure. Not everything will stay hooked up, but with a good set up, you can eliminate some of the abuse on the clutch that is caused by a poor set up.

    I have a buddy that always comes unhooked with his current set up, and his clutch just blew. He is changing his ride plate, to try to eliminate the unhooking problem, and hopefully saving the clutch, and adding more life to the clutch. I currently have 10 hours on a C-5 wheel on the same clutch and I have no problems yet. Soon to come, I know, but good for now.

    Good throttle control I belive, also helps.

    And thats funny. Fat Chicks........

    Im a closed course racer, and thats my opinion.

    Not sure what wave jumping, and ect. does, because I never do that.....

    Unhooking, advanced timing, high rpm, high boost, riding style/ throttle control.

    unhooking plays a major part in my riding..... i recently have put about 10hrs on my clutch and its all been constant unhooking in rough waters

    i do a lot of wave jumping too but no closed course for me....

    never been on a lake either....

    oem clutch done 37hrs on a stock ish set up and i believe thats down to my constant 2ft plus chop waters
