    428376EF-B6CE-4327-BA5D-C1C7FE7E28AF.jpeg We are ready to sell the Hurricane sidewinder clutch noise elimination shaft. This has been thoroughly tested all summer in the Hurricane promod sled making 340hp. This stub shaft replacement dramatically reduces the engine harmonics before they reach the clutch thus removing the rattles. This stub shaft also helps to quiet the Stm clutch while making the clutch much more durable. There is thought to actually be a gain in overall hp of the engine as a result of the Hurricane harmonics reduction shaft. The price is only $499us

    You know this topic will come up so do you want to elaborate....... No worries with crank bearing longevity Dave?

    Wow, great work Dave.

    As you know, Many of us would love a more in-depth post of specifics.

    Also how much work it is to install.

    And will this aid in belt wear do you think?

    Sure would be nice if it helps with primary roller life too.

    Congrats on this piece!

    We had this shaft made to move the clutch out drone the engine 1/8inch to fix the offset problems. It’s a ten min job to install

    That was a smart move to include Dave....since we all seem to have to machine the rear of secondaries, great!

    If you have a service manual, check pages 28 & 33 on replacing the "output shaft".

    This is only available for the 998 motor because the crank sensor is in the way on the 1050 motor

    So if one gets this clutch noise elimination shaft...this will also solve the offset issues with the sidewinder clutches..period? Am I understanding this correctly?

    I was thinking of ordering Dave’s clutch alignment tool soon to make sure my offset is correct; if you buy this piece, is that still necessary or not?

    Surprisingly, I actually was not bothered by my clutch noise like I thought I would have been. But if this fixes the noise and the alignment too...might be something to think About...just as long as it doesn’t cause any other side affects??

    You will still need to check your alignment. They are not all off by the same amount. Most people are having to machine the hub to bring them into alignment. This 1/8" extra should eliminate the need for that and allow you to adjust the number of shims behind it instead.
