Readspeed’s Lambretta Red Devil ‘Five Plate Clutch’ Kit is unique to Readspeed. The 5-plate clutch kit comes with a one-piece hardened billet spider and Readspeed’s own Red Race Friction Clutch Plates. It also has a lightened and hardened crown wheel for increased longevity and performance.
Please select sprocket size 46 or 47.
Unlike other designs it doesn’t have a packing plate and fits within the original casings requiring NO modifications to chaincase etc. and also NO modifications to exhaust fittings. This means, from the external, you retain the original look of the engine and all fittings,
The advantage of a five plate clutch over a conventional four plate clutch or five plate clutch is that there is a greater total surface area on the plates, this dramatically reduces clutch wear and reduces ‘clutch slip’ This is much better for more powerful engines or taller geared applications.
The kit comprises of a lightened crownwheel, machined one-piece billet centre spider, set of springs, bush, 5 friction plates, 4 steels, 1 top plate, pressure plate (bell), clutch circlip.
This is designed to run with GP type chaincase cover incorporating the phosphor-bronze thrust bush, however, if you have a Li/SX type chaincase cover and require a Li/SX pressure plate please put a note on the order.
