    Classic Honda Auto Clutch <OR> Trail Bikes Manual Clut

    I think my stock clutch is finally worn down and needs replacing ~ even with the harder springs... what do you guys think is better? The Classic Honda Auto Clutch (says it's provides 300% more gripping power) or the Manual two-plate clutch from Trail Bikes? They're about the price. I may also be stroking up my 88 to a 106 soon too ~ and want to be sure the new clutch I put in will have good gripping response for out of corner speed and not wear out to quickly.

    I went with the Takegawa HD auto clutch assembly and absolutely love it. I would recommend this to anyone who races. Plus the auto clutch classes are bigger out here. More riders = more fun.

    Go with the TB manual. Manual is alot more fun and much better for starts and corner speed. It should handle a 106 with no problem. Ive been abusing mine pretty good on my 88race head for quite some time and it still works like the day I put it in.

    Horstman auto clutch.



    44% lighter - 27oz vs 48oz for stock clutch

    * 31% smaller - 3.150" Dia. vs. 4.580" Dia. for stock clutch

    * Over 15% increase in friction surface … better grip and heat sink

    * Higher internal gear ratio - 16/54 vs 17/78 for more speed

    * Weighted cam action levers - 20% greater clamping for positive lock up

    * Cryogenic treatment of components run cooler ….last up to 300% longer

    * Easy maintenance - 5 cap screws to disassemble

    * Adjustable stall speed - a must for the serious racer!

    * CNC machined from billet alloy, steel and aluminum



    this thing works sweet!

    I'll definatly have that on my bike soon! I was gonna try to save up for a hydraulic manual just to keep my stock 3 plate setup. This definatly sounds like the right way to go though, being 100$ cheaper.

    I have the Takegawa HD auto clutch also. It feels really good on my near stock 50. I prefer the autoclutch for just playing around, but manual is probably better for racing.

    You can get the Hortsman from Stavron too. I think it's the same price from him also.
