After reading about the Gigot racing slingshot lockup. I wanted to know how much power a FZR 1000 clutch with 6 HD springs can handle befor it starts slipping... Not asking what size motor should have one, looking for HP and TQ#.

Get a nice ball bearing type EZ Pull lever. I have 6 HD springs in mine, butter pull...
I did just put in a new clutch, new inner and outer and cable. I have the slingshot...too.

I can tell you with a good clutch like you're posting, no lockup....6HD springs it held my 4 mil cub on gas. Probably 90 to 95 HP, I don't know about the torque, so...I'm not going to speculate on that number.

My GUESS would be mid 40's....to low 50's.
