Yes, between the friction material is a compression spring on the VW clutch.

Hmm, memories of shimming Ducati dry multi-plate clutches.... At least you could have those removed and in your hand in about three minutes, start to finish.

there are VW aircooled clutch discs available without the sprung for under $20.

If I bought one and milled the hub down to fit, would this be a frugal 1100GS replacement clutch?

I put a Lucas replacement clutch in mine with the other parts of the BMW clutch kit, much less expensive than BMW or Touratech and (I believe) better than the standard sachs BMW item.

Here's a link on flea-bay if you're interested.

The material on the clutch is supposed to be superior to the standard BMW item which I've worn out several of.

HTH,

David

This might sound like a stupid question, but what good is having springs on a clutch disc?
