Why Clutch Weights are a brilliant substitute for flywheel weights.
1. There isn't much for flywheel weights for newer KTM's and Husky’s.
2. Our large Clutch Weights are more than double the weight of available flywheel weights.
3. Clutch Weights are a larger diameter than flywheel weights.
4. Clutch Weights bolt on in minutes and can be changed on the side of a trail.
5. Clutch Weights are half the price of flywheel weights.
Based on reasons 1-5, you don't have to be that smart to figure out how a Clutch Weight compares to a flywheel weight.
And now we have three weight sizes, so you can get the best outcome for your needs.
Important Note: After 2 years of doing this, and getting lots of feedback, that weights under 9 ounces may as well not even be there. And when the weight gets over 16 ounces, people have reported throttle response slowing down on 450 EXC/FE’s and all 250 / 350's.
So, we have the 9 ounce weight which fits under any stock clutch cover (except for some 250’s).
And we have the 11.2 (our most popular), and the 15.8 ounce options that give astounding traction in off-road situations.
The 15.8 oz. weights REQUIRE the use of our larger Big Oily Clutch Covers, so they fit.
Our standard 11.2 oz. Clutch Weight, shown to the left and right, bolts right onto the outside of the stock KTM and Husqvarna diaphram style clutch, also known as a DDS clutch.
It fits with the stock clutch cover or our billet version, and is 4.5" in diameter.
It bolts to the inner hub which runs on a bearing on the clutch shaft, so there is no wobble or parts that will wear out.
Both the 2-Stroke and the 4-Stroke riders love it.
It gives you tractability in the snot and roots and rocks, but doesn't restrict acceleration or top end. At least that's what all our own testing and customer feedback has confirmed.
For a measley $59.95, it can't be beat. And we said it can be used with your STOCK clutch!
Our larger 15.8 oz. Clutch Weights are not only heavier, but larger in diameter at 4.93".
This weight and rotational mass increase is what makes the engines desire to keep rotating so effective.
Also, we give you the strongest bolts you can get, just as a safeguard against issues. The bolts included with our 15.8 weights are heavy duty, so there isn't any chance of breakage here with the forces of the larger weight and the higher torque of the larger engines.
Again, this only fits with the stock DDS style clutch and you need to use our larger area Big Oily billet clutch covers for clearance.
And again, the 450 / 500 crowd have reported back being amazed at how well the larger one worked. Over no weight for sure, but even over the 11.2 ounce weight.
Statements like “it's just made my 2017 FX 450 an off-road monster”. It just doesn't stall, it handles better in the sand and whoops, and I'm having to re-train myself that I don't need to have my hand on the clutch all the time.”
