YDS7/RD350 Racer clutch
« on: May 30, 2019, 08:43:25 PM »
Hi everyone just discovered the forum, I’ve built a race bike a few years back based on a YDS7 with a few mild upgrades (porting,expansion pipes etc). Anyway over the winter I decided to upgrade it to a 350 using a set of Fahron ported barrels. It turned the bike into a rocket ship but unfortunately it found it’s first weak spot being the clutch. It lasted two races before a bang and no drive. It had sheared the clutch spring bolts off of the inner hub. So my question is chaps, does anyone know of a upgrade to fit? I was think an RD350 clutch from an A or B model with new plates and stiffer springs? Would this fit on the YDS7 13 teeth gearbox shaft? Many thanks Will

we used to pack the springs or put an extra plate in.Stick with the 250 primary and clutch-basket it spins up quicker and revs faster ;)
