We see a lot of customers who incrementally upgrade their engines: one year they get a cam job, the next, they are in for head work and/or boring/stroking. The stock clutches on most bikes can handle a big bore kit or a cam job. Further engine work will require an upgrade to the clutch. AIM offers three models of this awesome device to cover a wide range of riders and bikes.
AIM-Tamachi VPC can be used to increase clutch clamping power or lighten hand-lever pull or both. The VP95 IV offers 40% more clamping power, the VP68 IV offers 40% less hand lever pull, and the VP84 IV combines the best of both with 20% more clamping power and 20% less hand lever pull.
This mechanism is also easy to install and can be done at home with a lift (or a patient friend to straddle the bike, a T-27 torque wrench, a 10 mm socket wrench, a 3/16 allen wrench, and a new derby cover gasket. The pros can do this job in 15-20 minutes; the DIY folks can usually knock it out in under an hour.
This mechanism works great with stock clutches, it can also provide enhanced clamping force for upgraded plates and springs. So long as you stick to the six-lug format, this upgrade can help just about any clutch.
If your clutch starts to slip, do not ignore it. The problem will only get worse if you do. Buy a VPC from Wide Open Throttle today. Save your plates, save your forearm, save some money, and get the power to the road.
