Anyone else have problems with the Nexus clutch?

I have gone through 2 sets of clutch shoes, a friend of mine is on his
second set and I witnessed a crash due to a shoe breaking in flight. My
shoes have been breaking after a very short time. I replaced the clutch
lining when I replaced the shoes. I don't know why they keep breaking
though. Anyone else have the same problem or maybe a fix for this?

Thanks,
Dave Porter

How strange, of all the problems I've had with mine, that has never been one
of them.

I have replaced the lining once and had a shed load of problems with the
starter dog where it engages with the clutch though.

I had to replace the clutch shoes on my X-Cell, this was due to an engine
runaway and the clutch over-heated. This caused the metal of the clutch
shoes to become heat tempered and break. It could be that if your spooling
the Nexy up too quickly you are overheating the clutch and doing the same
thing to the clutch shoes?:-of

Re the clutches leading or dragging when viewed from above? if they are
leading, they'll fly out, and catch on the clutch tape on the inside of the
bell.

If they drag ,ie. bolt to the left with the trailing edge of the shoe facing
clock wise they shouldn't break.

Had that same problem when i had my nexus a few years ago.

Re: Anyone else have problems with the Nexus clutch?

I had a couple of clutch problems when I had a Nexus.
It was the bolts that held the sh0es to the hub that used to break
on mine.

Stopped happening once I used good quality cap head bolts,
plently of thread-lock, and stopped over-tightening the bolts.

The flywheel also used to 'undo' itself from the crank, resulting
in the clutch shoes jamming up on the underside of the clutch bell
and starter shaft. I stopped that by changing to a stronger type
of thread lock on the crank threads - but this meant that it was
a bugger to get the flywheel off the engine if you ever needed to.
