    New Tri-z clutch covers

    Lots of people say the clutch covers are weak on the tri-z and have problems with them cracking. I have also been told if they are kept tight they dont give much trouble. I would like to know how many people would pre-order for new clutch covers. I would need about 25 people who would pre-order $50 for new heavy duty clutch covers. These covers would either be beefed up with a sight glass, or have a sight glass and a quick change cover. They would be casted with a better alloy than the stock, and thicker in the area where they are prone to crack.

    Please vote in the poll, and if you have any questions reply to the thread.

    I'd pre-order one but it would have to have the quick change cover. Don't really care about the sight glass.

    so you don't have to take the cover off ,, to adjust,change plates..possibly not have too drop the oil to work on the clutch... would be Sweet ..Stronger a must..the window is not necessary but would be nice to check on the fly with no tools! and would be a nice added touch..

    This is what the quick change cover looks like. You would have a cover directly over the clutch where you can take it off and change the clutch basket if you wanted, without draining the oil, or the coolant and taking off the brake lever, footpeg, and replacing the gasket etc. The cover would be oring sealed.
    Here is a pic of a ktm cover which has the sight glass directly behind the clutch area.

    Very cool...I would be in for one. I am planning on assembling this Tri-Z one of these years. I dont think the sight glass is a necessity but would be an alright feature.

    The sight glass would maybe cost me $7 per unit, I also think more people will check their oil if all they have to do is look at the cover, also when adding oil you will be able to gauge the oil level without using the oil screw or a dipstick etc. And with a beefier cover, it should resist cracking. Yamaha is gonna run out of clutch covers some day and when they do.....look out!, we are talking 200-300 for a used on on ebay. Most Triz owners I have talked with have bought new clutch covers and are worried about them cracking in the future.

    For everyone who is looking at this offer saying: "Thats a lot of money."


    Think about not having to worry about clutch covers crackin on you. Think about having the possibility of only having to buy ONE of these, that could last you the life of your Z.


    You know where I stand Corey. Ive been waiting for someone to take this project on for a while!

    I think I will start the preorders here in a couple days, I need to get the shopping cart set up. I have been talking with the caster for a while now, and hoping they will be as quick and of good quality as they say they are. I will not know how much the retail is until they get done with the programing etc. I will make sure all pre-orders will save money and be guaranteed a product. Right now the caster says about 4 months, and I am saying it should be done in 6 months. Course, it could be a year, dont be suprised Pre-orders will be $50 and the rest (100-150) will be due when they are ready to ship. The quick change will be anodized in red, blue, and black.... and probably have Sprock Racing machined on it. I am wanting to get these covers to ya cheaper than what is quoted but be prepared to pay a maximum of $200 if needed.....
