I have a stock MTX4 clutch with the grey, yellow and red shoes available. Any input appreciated!!
try 1.1mm on the spring and 0.8 on the bellhousing gap

I hope this helps...
If I am wrong you didn't hear this from me...
I ended up adjusting the clutch shoe to slip more but I also had to loosen up the black 2-speed clutch shoe. I got it back in the range where I could run my main. I still need to fine tune it.

Actually, Im currently using the MTX-3 2-speed clutch. With internal serpent diff balls. I have had awesome results with this kind of setup and have only stripped the second gear once since then and this was because it was already worn out from use.

Im using this setup now:

Yellow clutch, stock spring, stock shoes (lightweight), 9mm spring (measured from the top of the crankshaft) and 0.4mm clutch gap. After measuring this clutch gap, you should shim the inside of the bell so there isnt any rubbing against the clutch shoe.

anyone know if there are aluminum wheel hexes with the 1mm offset in them so you don't have to use spacers?

I have not seen any. I guess that doesn't mean they don't exsist.
