For the most part, dual-disc clutches have been relegated to the racetrack and do not behave on the street since they usually act as more of an on/off switch for the clutch without the finesse most people want/need on the street. Well, McLeod came up with some new clutch facing material that'll hold much more horsepower than previous designs and only requires light effort to engage the pedal-it's like the best of both worlds!
McLeod's Street Twin clutches come in two stages, the RST and the RXT. The main difference between the two is the clutch facing material. The RST uses an organic facing on each side of its two discs and is rated up to a whopping 800 horsepower, and the RXT has a metallic facing rated over 1,000 horsepower, and remember, these are good for street use, which is unheard of! Another reason they hold up to these ratings is that the clutch discs are 9 11/16 inches in diameter, which is smaller than the stock clutch, but there's over twice the clutch surface area working for you because there are two clutch discs. They are also lightweight, which reduces reciprocating weight and gives the clutch a low moment of inertia that doesn't require as much horsepower to spin.
