Unless your planning on running your mtx-4 without a belt tensioner... the kyosho v1rrr belt wont fit in the mtx-4 or viceversa... (just tried it right now)

Well i guess nitrokb was wrong then , cause from the looks of it, i dont think i can run the belt without the tensioner without it rubbing against the manifold, unless i can find another manifold that would fit, but then again there would be no point.

i use rrr sp belt only when i use the 24 side pully and don want to use an additional belt tensioner, but i don't remember if it is the 384 or 387, cuz one of them is shorter that mtx4 belt, the rrr sp is similar tu mugen rubber ones.

for the 25t side pulley there;s no need for additional belt tensioner, btw when finish racing i take out the side belt, don't know if it works but i do the same for my clutch spring and it has been consistant for the last year with minimal need to adjust deeper the nut

happy racing

Default clutch mtx 4r

Hello guys,

I may or may not have a problem, i finally came to assemble my clutch but in order to come as close as possible to the end play of the clutch bell of 0,3~0,5 mm i didnt used any shims at the end, and if i did use only 1 shim the clutch bell didnt move freely,

does anyone know how this is possible? or is this normal,
thank you in advance for your reply

this type of thing usually occurs when you use the engine manufacturers collette rather than the one supplied in the kit (tho that said my CRF collette works fine). Also make sure you have tightened the flywheel nut firmly enough

perhaps your gap is too big, and it takes some runs to your clutch shoe to settle, then you can readjust your gap and endplay, .5 gap and .1 is normal

Pretty much what he said.

the collet used was a bit long, you can grind the back of the collet so you can have room for shiming.....

FYI,
Just put the clutch together on my R.. when setting the end play i was having trouble getting the shims right. I noticed the 3X16 set screw felt funny while tightening down the clutch pack. When I removed the screw I noticed the tip was shiny and I realized the bolt was too long and bottoming out. I ground a few threads off the bolt, Now the end play is correct and the bolt tightened down perfectly..

If you are using a shim behind fly wheel this can cause your problem as well,take it out,if you are.
