Yeah I gotcha! I just wanted something different that no one has. I need to take it off and fill that tube with sound dampening something because it carries a lot of clutch noise through it. I wasnt sure if id like the length but its really nice and if I want the throw to be short I just grab it at the bottom of the handle cuz thats where the stock one ends anyways. I can honestly shift it just as fast from the top tho so I usually just do that.

Wait a minute here... has anyone ever heard of "underpowering" a clutch?
In my 50 years, about 45 of it being a motörhead, I've never heard of that and just cannot see how going easy on a clutch will damage it!

I was thinking the same thing! I looked it up earlier basically its where the vehicle doesnt have enough power to engage the clutch correctly so you have to slip it to get it to engage. Of course letting out on the clutch at any time does have some slight bit of slip but basically I think it means just dont take too long letting out on the pedal. At least thats what I took from it

Same here... But they know more about the workings of the clutch than me, which is why i wanted to ask here also. Basically my clutch is glazed over for some reason or another but according to the guy at valair its got to do with slipping the clutch. He told me with the single you kinda have to go all or nothing. Sounds almost like dumping the clutch every time you take off

Yeah Ive heard some of those big singles can be a trick to drive. Theyre really grabby which makes sense with less friction potential to make the clutch engage hard so there isnt slip. Ive only driven one once and it was in a 1st gen and the dang thing stalled on me cuz it grabbed too hard. Id say youre probably better off with a dual disk. Im guessing what he's getting at is that when you take off youre on the clutch long enough to try and get a smooth engagement that it ends up slipping too much and gets the disk and fly wheel hot enough that it glazes the fly wheel.

See that makes since to me. What I dont understand is how that is related to the amount of hp the truck makes. Im kinda tossing around the idea of pulling it out and maybe trying to rough up the clutch surface and throw it back in as it will be a while before I can afford the dual disk

Replacing a clutch can be a tough job because the transmission is heavy. It can also be extremely dangerous and could cause bodily harm or damage to your vehicle, especially if someone is doing the work who isn’t trained in slipping clutch repair. However, if you are determined to do the repairs, yourself, it’s important to keep a few things in mind.

If you have a place that does it near you and a lot of spare time you might consider getting the fly wheel turned. Theyll do it on a lathe so the surface is perfectly flat. Personally I wouldnt wanna do all that work for something that may or may not work but thats just me.

I work at a diesel shop so i do all my own work. Ive done my fair share of clutches just never "fixed" a clutch and put it back in

Agreed. The only reson im considering it is bc im actually between jobs atm and it will be a while before i can get a dual disk. But ill probably just run this one and take it easyish for now.

Yeah I understand that! I mean if it hasnt been slipping for a while and completely worn itself out id say you could baby it for a while and not hurt it
