What's The Difference Between Clutches?

The MTC 2-stage lock up is designed to increase clutch clamping force as quickly as possible. You will see additional clamping force from every lock up arm about 10-15 ft from the starting line. This allows maximum lock up very quickly. Making it a good choice for a bike that is 68 wheelbase or longer w/o using a bar or a bike with slick and bar where a wheelie isn't a concern.

The Patented MTC Multi-Stage lock up units are designed to apply additional clutch clamping force in a more progressive manner than the 2-stage. In the case of the Hayabusa, 3 arms will start to apply about 15-20 ft from the starting line, further down track the remaining 3 arms apply additional clamping force to prevent clutch slippage on the top end. This makes the Multi-Stage lock up an excellent choice for turbocharged applications. Short wheelbase bikes will also benefit from the progressive application of force in that, the rider can tune the lock up to apply later in the run to alleviate a wheelie or tire spin condition, while still maintaining full lock up on the top end of the track.

MTCs Patented Slider clutches are for the track only dragbike . These units completely eliminate the clutch lever. Engagement and disengagement are controlled totally by engine RPM, making them unsuitable for street use. Using centrifugal force to engage the clutch and eliminating the need for the rider to release the clutch lever results in lower more consistent 60 times, lower ETs than lever clutch equipped bikes and a smoother launch. The MTC slider is suitable for use in any length bike, with or without wheelie bars.
