    Clutch plates

    I was reading and I was wondering if you guys had some insight. It was about using two cr125 steels and putting the rest of the steels from the 250r.again I do not know I read this and was curious of why. It was explaining about the honda 250r steels are .10 and cr steel .20.do people use this to make a tighter pull on the clutch? Thanks in advance for your insights.

    I have only done the Neil clutch mod, which is a 400ex steel mid pack and CR500 springs with drain plug washers under them. I used Tusk frictions and steels. That clutch is still holding strong after 7 years of use.

    Yeah no problem. I suppose you could google neil neil clutch mod to find posts on it. Neil Pritchard was the guy that came up with it. He recently passed away so we have lost a true 250R guru.

    Neil was a great guy, and very good friend; saw & hung out with him every year for the past 5 that BDT made the Trip to PineLake Raceway, Ashtabula, OH for the Nationals...will be missed for sure. The "Neil Clutch Mod" is the old Honda Team Trick done back in the Mid to Late 80's....works well on Higher HP & TrQ engines, however; clutch pull is noticeably stiffer vs OEM.

    Again, someone has posted Wrong Information.:

    To be clear; the CR125R Fibers or Steels can not be used with the standard OEM Basket or Standard Billet Basket, the CR Fibers/Plates have 2 more Drive tabs vs the TRX/ATC250R Plates...therefore you Need a special Basket. Special Baskets were made years ago for using CR125R & CRF125 Plates/Fibers, Both for 7 & 8 Plate designs...They are Custom Billet with Billet Center Hubs and Billet Pressure Plate...very Pricey 100% Billet Setups. Quite Good for BB High HP & TrQ Race Engines. Both Billet versions are still in Stock at BDT Motorsports.
