MTC: Kawasaki ZX14 Gen2 Clutch
The “Gen II Multistage Clutch” is designed and built to significantly reduce clutch lever efforts and improve clutch adjustability through its “multistage” technology.
The new design runs on engine RPM, and demonstrates a quicker reaction time and more repeatability between passes. The new design also allows for easier dynamic spring replacement with its quick access cover plate over the springs.
With this clutch, you have a soft clutch lever feel, almost like you don’t have enough pressure on the clutch. But, once you launch and engine RPM increases, lockup force from the arms come in and apply additional pressure. This allows racers to literally “throw the clutch away” at the launch and roll aggressively into the throttle. If the bike bogs too much, remove some static pressure. If the bike tries to wheelie 10-40′ from the starting line, add some weight to the clutch to help pull the engine down.
