Clutch Set Up??

Anyone set their clutch up like the CRF450R dirt bike. We've done that for the TRX450R that we MX & it seems that the same can be done to the TRX700XX clutch as well. Just wondering!

The CRF450R bike & TRX450R quad have thew same clutch basket set up & basically the same plates/fibers except that the quad has 1 thin fiber & a couple of judder springs. We just set the TRX450R up like the dirt bike & it works better. Seems, from the parts break down, the TRX700XX can be done the same way.

The CRF and TRX450r are differant baskets.The CRF has cushions fitted and TRX does not.
I removed the judder springs/ half plate in the xx and fitted a 450r fiber plate , 12 months ago and never had any issues. It has a better feel with this setup.

2008 TT-ReXX , 2003 400ex and 2014 CRF250r.

Hey Amigo, sound like you done just what I'm looking to do to my 700XX. They all (CRF450R/TRX450R/TRX700XX) have the same basic "main" disc so getting rid of the judder springs just make for a better clutch feel for sure.

As for the clutch baskets, they are the same...have used the TRX on the CRF & the CRF on the TRX.

Less slippage, easier pull, immediate engage once you drop the lever. Better for the "off the line" holeshots.

Just set the clutch up like the attached photo using the SKU: 22201-MEB-670 DISK, CLUTCH FRICTION fibers. That's how we have our TRX450R's set up.
