Anyone with experience setting up a Multistage clutch?

Good day of drag racing, but ate 2 clutches in 8-12 passes...

Tried different static springs, but the motor just kept blowing through them.....tried the same setup from last year that worked flawlessly, but the new motor power is a bit much.

Anyone with some spring setting ideas?

I have a selection of springs to choose from.

2004 ZX10R-few mods here and there......
and even made more Evil by Woolich.

Did you get this sorted out yet?? I need to set one up for my ZX10 also. I've got on in my old school KZ no bar bike and it works ok. I used the stock springs for the static and then mixed light and heavy springs for the second stage. I used just a nut and bolt on the final. Seems to do ok for me but i plan to try a few different combinations. I do spray a good size shot of nitrous progressively down track to run the Crazy 8's index so the clutch really has to fully lock up when the spray comes on.

clutch

MTC wasn't much help. Try to post this on psychobike.com. Someone on there can give you a better starting point. If its burning up the clutches then the second stage springs could be too stiff keeping the arms from locking up the clutch. I would either add weight to the arms or try softer inner springs. Just my 2 cents.
