STAGE6 Tuning tutorial #01 - Stage6 clutch & clutch bell

Uploaded by Stage6Dev on 10.01.2011

We’d like to present the Stage6 Torque Control MKII and show you how to install it.
But first let’s have a look at how the original clutch is constructed.
Springs are located at the backside. It is not possible to change their preload or the weight of the clutch shoes.
To change the springs, the complete system would have to be removed. This is different with the Stage6 clutch.
With this patented system, the springs face the front.
Here you can see the scale. Through this screw you can continuously adjust the spring preload and then check the preload via the scale.
With long nose pliers, you can easily remove the springs and insert e.g. harder ones.
Here at the back of the shoes there are openings for additional weights (9 brass weights are included in the delivery!)
They can easily be inserted.
At these orifices, you can see where weights have been inserted.
Now I’ll show you how to install the Stage6 Torque Control MKII.
For demonstration purposes, we’ll show the installation without the torque spring.
The Stage6 clutch can easily be installed in place of the old clutch and fixed with the clutch nut.
Here you can access the screws for preload adjustment.
Using the hex key (included in the delivery), the preload can be increased or decreased.
Now I’ll show you how to attach these brass weights to increase the weight of the clutch shoes.
You completely loosen the preload adjustment screws and remove the clutch springs. Then you can simply insert the weights at the back of the shoes and e.g. insert harder springs.
Installation is the reverse of removal; you can verify the preload via the scale.
We’d now like to present the Stage6 R/T CNC Clutch Bell.
Here you can see where the holding tool (available optionally) is inserted and there are two holes to adjust the spring preload without prior removal of the bell.
When the holding tool blocks the bell like this, loosening even tight nuts is no problem.
To be able to adjust the spring preload, all you have to do is place the hole in the CNC-milled cooling ring of the bell above the adjustment screw.
This CNC clutch bell won’t even have to be removed to change the clutch springs.
