SXS Anti-Hopping Clutch Assembly RFS 250-525 03-07
A must for any ambitious supermoto rider. Heavy braking, especially going into a turn, can lead to unnerving chattering at the rear wheel. Experienced supermoto riders overcome this problem with a gentle pull on the clutch lever, thereby reducing the transference of this force to the rear wheel. Resourceful engineers have come up with the solution: the anti-hopping clutch. It works by using softer springs and is consequently much easier to use than conventional clutches. A complex mechanism using angeled layers for additional friction was developed to prevent clutch slippage. Under engine load this system generates additional pressure on the clutch plates, but when over running the clutch is able to slip. While braking, the rear wheel maintains optimal contact with the road surface without the rider having to concentrate on the clutch. At the same time the rider saves a lot of energy and spares himself the discomfort of a cramped forearm.
