My Clutch started slipping at around 30FtLbs of Torque and robbed me of a good headline number so I decided to outlay the bucks for a Hitchcocks 8 Plate set.
As has been recorded elsewhere the kit comprises of an extra 2 steel plates the stronger springs and 8 friction plates and is subsequently thicker than the original clutch pack when assembled.
I have not been able to get Neutral with the Engine running since! It has not slipped yet but I am not producing that much Torque either.
Evaluation , not worth the expense nor the hassle as it is a pig to install because the outer plate keeps slipping out of the Basket and when installed correctly it still not very good as it is Too Thick, makes me wonder if they have rectified this and forgotten to tell their customers or just forgotten their Customers and rectified it quietly.
