500cc Clutch Plates On A 350cc Bike
The bike owner begins by informing that he has performed this modification to his own bike which he has driven for 6 years. At the end of 6 years, the clutch plates were needed to be changed since he was experiencing some power drop, especially during highways rides or driving in the mountainous terrains. He took time out to research for any performance-oriented clutch plate but couldn’t find one. That is when the idea struck his mind of trying to install the clutch plates of a 500cc bike on his Classic 350. He took the bike to an experienced mechanic and performed the process. Now, there had to be some modifications made to adjust 6 clutch plates and 7 pressure plates in place of 5 clutch plates and 6 pressure plates. But they were able to do it.
After the new clutch plate assembly was installed into the bike, the owner drove for about 500 km. Initially, he faced some hiccups from shifting the gears from neutral to 1st and 2nd. All the other gears were smooth. However, after regular use, that problem was gone as well and the overall bike operation became smooth. On the positive front, the bike has become smooth and there is a significant reduction in vibration levels of the motorcycle. More importantly, the power delivery has become instant as demonstrated by the YouTuber in the video.
