Re: New clutch!

Does the kit include the flywheel?

Looking to get an Exedy for mine in a couple of months as seem to be the clutch of choice for standard (ish) cars.

Wayne, my brother got hold of an ACT 6.1Kg flywheel when he changed to an exedy clutch and it does shudder at low revs when taking off, so not to everyones liking.
I had an exedy organic put on my old classic and it was great, the pedal was as light or even a bit lighter than the OEM clutch. i had the OEM flywheel skimmed/lightened by API engines which made a bit of difference to pickup and throttle response but nothing to write home about. I think they took about 4 or 5 kg's off, so it was probably 7 or 8 kg's,,.... but no Judder!

Re: New clutch!

There is not enough meat on a newage flywheel to lighten when skimming as the standard are pretty light already.

But skimming the existing flywheel is a good idea when fitting a new clutch.

Re: New clutch!

I fitted a Fidanza flywheel and organic clutch on my old classic and it really picked up well.
