Lock up/slider clutch

Does any one make a lock up for the 06 07 models or at least a modified clutch cover to accept it?

The only one that I know of is the Hays convertable clutch. It can be set up as a single/multi stage lock up, slider or combination.

Or you can try swapping to the 04-05 clutch and running the muzzy lock up ( a lot cheaper)
Then run hays' clutch cover spacer http://www.haysmachineworks.com/inde...mart&Itemid=26

Every thing shows the 04 05 model but not the 06 07. I take it you have one on your 06. Does that mean Hays will bolt right up with out an 04 05 basket and hub? Will the 04 05 basket bolt right on and do I have to modify my current basket to accept the 04 05? I know its lots of Q's but I'm trying to understand what it'll take before I drop a note and end up with the wrong setup. I really appreciate the info and like the the setup that Hays has.

I still have a stock clutch but have looked for the same thing you are. The hays will drop right in. They have different setups for the different generations. As for swapping to the first gen clutch, I don't know very much about it other than it has been done. A lot of people do it to eliminate some clutch chatter that the 2nd gen has. I personally am very happy with mine, lasted all season swb, never changed anything just pulled the plates out and mic'ed em occassionally. To get an inexpensive lock up I would think you would be able to swap to the 04-05 basket and plates and install the muzzy lock up. Then use Hays spacer and be good to go. Try searching on here for guys swapping the clutchs and check out psychobike.com, there's a ton of strictly drag related info on there and Mr. Hays himself.

I have a dumb question that wasn't answered by looking at the link provided above. (Not a drag racer)

What does this device do? Is it some sort of centrifugal clutch?


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

In lockup the higher the rpm the more clamping force. When you are pushing big power you need it. In slider it will engage at a preset rpm. This is a very simple explanation.. I am the one the helped tim create this clutch for the 10. Worth the money

Simply put, Yes! It can be setup in different formats single stage, multi stage, slider, or normal hand clutch.
Single stage- the fingers flip out and apply pressure to keep plates from slipping
this can be adjusted for how fast and how much pressure by changing the weight (nut, bolt, washers) on each finger.
Multi stage- same as above but different amounts of pressure at different points, low rpm/high rpm
slider- centrifugal clutch basically, adjust fingers, stack height, and static pressure to get clutch to engage at a certain rpm and "slide" to a desired rpm where it eventually "locks up"

The disadvantage to a slider is that it can only be ran full blast, up and down rpm and normal street riding will tear it up in a hurry.

yes he did!!!

The Hays clutch works great from the simplest of street bikes all the way up to a full blown drag bike...We have sold lots of the hays clutches for the gsxr's and they work great!! Get you one!!
