Vortex clutches employ modern technologies that virtually eliminate engine bogging.
While all other disc clutches attach springs to the pressure plate to control clamping
force, Vortex springs are attached to the levers to control centrifugal force. By
controlling force where it is generated instead of where it is applied, Vortex clutches
react more quickly to changes in engine rpm. Less energy is lost to clutch heating
leaving more energy for acceleration. Smoother engagement and faster acceleration
Vortex clutches are user friendly. The clutch springs are adjusted quickly, easily
and precisely without dial calipers. Air gap is not an issue with the Vortex clutch,
reducing the amount of adjustments. Clutch rebuilds are inexpensive, simple, and
take a matter of minutes using only a T-handle wrench.
What clutch spring is right for my two disc clutch?
Vortex springs are offered in three different rates:
- Silver Springs are
recommended for Honda and clone engines.
- Black Springs are recommended
for Briggs & Stratton engines.
- Gold Springs are for
high rpm engagements such as modified motors.
Vortex three disc clutches comes with Black Springs standard. You can use
the selector above to have your clutch equipped, and shipped with the silver or
gold springs installed instead of the black springs.
