Roller clutch for '97 XCR 600

Post by Jim Ponstei » Mon, 23 Sep 1996 04:00:00


I am going to be picking up my new XCR 600 SE next week and can't leave
well enough alone.  Has anyone tried a roller clutch on last years XCR
600 SP?  I am looking at the Aaen and the Goodwin roller clutches.  Do I
need a new helix and spring set up with a roller clutch.

Thanks!

From what I saw at Haydays I was more impressed by the design of the
Hymark drop-in. They supposedly have a trade-in for helixes to make
sure you get set-up properly. Their design sure beats having the big
heavy steel helix too. No, I'm not ready to buy one just yet but if
they want 3000+ miles of trail testing done I'll do it... :-)

Yeah... I did say 3000+! 4,5,6???  I would guarantee them >3000 if they
wanted one pounded though.

And you'll certainly know how to pull/lube/replace those ETT TSL bushings
with that kind of mileage. (no lubrication, just bushed for those that
haven't seen one)

  Oops,,, sorry I missed the "+"...

  Yea, I would guarantee just about anybody that mileage too for some
aftermarket goodies!!!

  Yep, I have been thinking about that.. I wonder if there is a way
to put a grease fitting on that thing. You have put one together, what
do you think??

Can't think of a way myself... The TSL is anodized aluminum with a
bronze bushing and a steel insert that is bolted to the tunnel. It's
mighty close to the track already. I'm afraid periodic removal and a
finger full of grease may be the only way. Maybe a machined cup w/zerk
held against the inside of the TSL while pumping grease might work...

Heck I didn't even check the owners manual for the recomendation...
