Siebenrock Oil Proof Clutch experience

Anybody have experience with the Oil Proof clutch from SR?

How smooth is it?

Will it take some HP?

I have one. That's about all I can say. I installed it along with the heavy diaphragm spring that motobins sells. Haven't had the chance to try to make it slip yet. I'm guessing it'll handle a 1000cc 9.5:1 top end just fine.

Is the engagement smooth? Feels like a normal clutch?

I installed one in a K1200RS a yea or so ago. There was some juddering on engagement, but as the miles went on, the juddering disappeared.

Thanx. I have an old Luftmeister puck disc and it has always juddered and it's gonna have to go one of these days.

It's fine except that juddering is irritating. Not sure what I was thinking when I bought that.

Whatever you were thinking then it was closer than you think it was to whatever you are thinking now asking about Seibenrock's clutch.

Speaking of Luftmeister, the shop I used to work at we'd joke on how their products improved your bikes performance by improving the horsepower to weight ratio..............by lightening your wallet.

I've got one fitted to my R100GS -see build thread link, below- light lever and nice take up, but it won't slip, so when you let the clutch lever out, the bike takes off. I'm pretty certain it would take some HP.

I have the HPN equivalent fitted to the 1070 bike after I had some slippage issues, bit grabby at first, but that went away after a few hundred miles.

Thanx Chas!

After it broke in well, does it feel like a stock clutch?
