New Development Approach for Wet Motorcycle Clutch System 2014-32-0136

This paper discusses the design elements for a wet clutch system to successfully meet the requirements of today's motorcycle market. You can find new design ideas regarding how to realize important and critical clutch performance features such as torque boost, coast torque reduction (anti-hopping function), reduced actuation force, reduced drag torque, optimized weight, and/or optimized product cost. Most of these functions and features can be implemented in a modular clutch kit in which many of the parameters can be adapted with a minor design change of just a few components.
