Maintenance and Repair
User servicing is limited to replacing the main pressure plates
or hub, and cleaning as required.
Other replacements require the use of specialised test equipment to set up the clutch and the unit should be returned to AP Racing to be reconditioned.
All clutch components should be examined frequently for signs of
damage or abnormal wear. Remove dust with a brush or vacuum
cleaner, and any light deposits of oil or grease with a non oil
based solvent. Heavier deposits of oil on the carbon plates are
best cleaned using an ultra-sonic wash. After cleaning the carbon
plates with any fluids, it is recommended that any remaining
traces of oil or solvent be removed by baking them for an hour at
300°C in a suitable oven.
Never use brake cleaner to wash carbon. A film of cleaner will remain on the carbon causing the clutch to slip on initial use even if the carbon is baked.
