Dirt Bike Clutch System - Clutch Lever and Components


As a dirt biker, you already know what the clutch is, and how to use it (otherwise time for more riding classes). Looking at the layout, the clutch lever is connected to the clutch perch which attaches to the handlebars. The clutch is also known as deadmans switch, and pulling in the clutch lever allows the engine to disconnect from the drivetrain. When the clutch lever is released, the engine and drivetrain align again. The coupling of these two parts is achieved by springloaded clutch plates. When the springs are stiff, it makes it more difficult to pull in the clutch, but the benefit is max coupling (connection) between the engine and drivetrain when shifting, but quicker ramp up can make shifting more difficult to control. For motocross, its best to have softer springs since the clutch lever is pulled numerous times in one ride. Fine tuning a clutch requires adjusting the number springs or plates. If the springs used are too soft, the result can be clutch slippage. Whats most important is understanding the wear limits on your clutch components. Overtime and after many rides, the clutch plates wear down from engagement/rubbing and the springs lose their tension. If the springs get weak enough, they will be incapable of holding the clutch plates together, causing slippage.
