Stiff Clutch... new slave or remove springs?

5005 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  jcasella
So with dry clutches being typically heavier than their wet counterparts, what's the typical/recommended way to make the lever pull easier on the hand? I've read that upgrading the slave cylinder should reduce the stiffness by about 20-30%, but others just say to remove 2 springs from the clutch. If you're running a 1000desmo engine, does removing springs result in any clutch slippage? Anywho, just curious about people's opinions on this...

I, personally would not remove clutch springs...especially 2. If your going to remove them, remove 3...that way the pressure is evenly distributed across the pressure plate.

I have seen bigger slave cylinders available that will drop the pull by 30%...this is the route I would take.

The only other solution is to get one of the grip exercisers from the 80's and go to town. I'm sure Popeye thinks the desmo clutch is might easy!

hope it helps.
