Well not really* open, but looks that way. Some of you have seen the bike im building. NSF100 sized mini bike that is stuffed with a 426. A little ducati inspired. I want the appearance of an open clutch.

1st I took the stock pressure plate and skim milled it to get that CNC look and beveld the edge like the GTYR and the Henson. It will be anodized red. Im making gold spring washers too.

Stock.

Milled.

2nd I took an ebay special gold clutch cover and cut out the center.

Before.

Cutting.

After.

Cover ring.

Being cut.
Posted Image

On the lathe

Done. I tapped the back side so you wont see any bolts. Im using tapered flat head bolts so they sit fluch on the inside of the clutch cover.

Here is the mock up.

With out ring. The lexan will sit between the clutch cover and the outer ring.

With ring.

Im still not done. I have to cut the 1/8th" lexan , anodize the outer ring (natural), anodize the pressure plate red, and anodize the spring collars gold.

I hope you guys like.

Hi shawn, I have similar one on my Zed and it makes it a real head turner, great idea to put it on 450, you're probably the first on the planet, and your design looks fantastic :) would love to see it fitted on the bike soon

Thanks guys, That KZ cover looks great.

I got some more done today. Basically done. Just need to get the ring, pressure plate and spring carries anodized. I got the lexan cut. The bolts i got im not happy with, going to get some better quality stainless allen heads. Shold be done and mounted in a week or too.

Now installed on the bike with freshly powder coated valve and oil cover.

Final product.

I didn't stop there... I also found a carbon fiber stator cover, re-cleared it (was a disaster) and added a Ducati decal to give it a final touch.

Enjoy!
