Twistgrip Clutch Assembly

If clean is the name of your game, you want your handlebars without visible cables. So, you may already use an internal throttle system. You can adopt a similar approach for your clutch side by using a Twistgrip assembly. The mechanism is identical to the internal throttle assembly but with a reverse spiral to activate your clutch cable. But the wrist effort to overcome the strength of the clutch spring requires the addition of a mechanism to increase leverage, in this case a pulley attached to the clutch arm inside the transmission side cover. Exile Cycles offers a complete assembly including all the parts making a Twistgrip easy to operate. (you will need to use a Jims transmission with a Primo diaphragm clutch). More info on this kit at Exile Cycles.

    I’ve got this setup and it is very cool-didn’t take but a couple rides to get used to the “double twist”–just gotta pay attention!

    Dangola – combine this rig with Kraus Motor Company’s reverse throttle/brake setup and you’ve got some busy hands…and a confused operator!!
