Clutch Plates for Trial Bikes
Clutch plates on trials bikes facilitate power transfer from the engine to the transmission. A smooth-functioning clutch allows riders to switch gears effortlessly.
There are two types of clutch plates trials bikes need: the drive/friction plate and the driven/steel plate. The friction plate is indexed via tabs to a bike's clutch basket and features a friction-generating surface on both sides. The drive plates is usually made of smooth steel and sits between the friction plates and the hub.
Both plates rotate together to send power from the bike's engine to the transmission. When you switch gears, the pressure plate stops the drive and driven plates from rotating, cutting the power to the transmission. The smoother and better-quality clutch plates trial bikes have, the more effortlessly they'll be able to switch gears and execute engagements.
