Features of OS Giken Clutch and Flywheel Products
Reduced Pedal Effort
The design, material, and heat treatment of the diaphragm spring has been designed to maintain clamping force while reducing the pedal effort by about 25%.
Light it Up
We have selected the optimal lightweight flywheel for each vehicle type based on our experience and expertise.
By reducing the clutch disk inertial mass, we can optimise the synchromesh engagement, enabling quicker shifts.
By providing slits on the disc surface, the air flow is controlled and excellent cooling performance is achieved. Furthermore, the aluminum cover is used to efficiently dissipate the heat generated internally.
By adopting a reliable and proven metal disk, we achieve "direct" transmission performance without the lag or disconnected feeling which is experienced with inferior materials.
Example: TS 2 B D
Clutch Cover: TS = Pressed, TR = Aluminium, R = Centre Hub Aluminium
Number of discs: 1 through 4
Disc Diameter in mm: A = 184, B = 204, C = 215
Style: D = Disk type with damper, W = Heavy Flywheel, S = Single Spring Type
