    Default Which clutch to get

    Hi all,

    Off the back of my old post (I wasn't sure if id get a response adding to the old one)

    I was going to get a genuine Honda Clutch kit, i was advised to look at buying one and then getting Honda to fit or just going to Honda and getting it all done directly (Around 700-800) I was looking at Clutch kits online and i can see Stage 2 clutch kits etc for only 30-40 quid more than the genuine Honda kit, for example.

    https://www.tegiwaimports.com/rpc-st...-k-series.html

    My question is that if i'm getting the clutch changed should i just spend another 50 or so quid and a get an uprated stage 2 or 3 clutch, i am planning on doing things to the car in the future which may take it up 20-30 bhp.

    Is it worth it? Will i see any benefits I.E. longer lifespan, better/smoother shifts etc? Will these last longer when you're really shifting quick.

    Thanks again guys!

    To keep it short. No, genuine Honda will be up to the job. No need for anything else with a small increase in power.

    I'm running an Exedy oem clutch which is not running 360bhp and it's been fine for just over 1k miles including a trackday. So no problems with the genuine item. I'd stick with Honda as the release bearing in mine is a little noisy already, having covered only 5k miles but I don't use it very much.

    I hope this helps to make your decision.

    Oem cluth no need for a stage 2 or 3 unless you have big power just so you know grinspeed will fit a new clutch for around 400 that including the clutch

    Thanks mate, iv'e heard the release bearings on the Exedy aren't that great. Yeah might as well just get the genuine Honda gear then!

    Is that for a genuine Honda clutch or an Exedy?

    Ah I see, well Loxy recommended getting the genuine Honda kit rather than the partial Exedy/honda kit most places offer. If you go on Clickmechanic you can get someone fit the entire kit at your address for around 450, but it's the Exedy/Honda mix clutch.

    I think id rather pay the extra 300 or so to get it done at Honda with the official parts.

    I was just checking to see if I could get a Stage 2 or 3 clutch which will be higher quality than the Honda clutch for the same price as the dealer would charge to fit and supply the standard one

    Where abouts are you? There's a fair few Honda specialists who do them day in day out and will be far cheaper than a dealer and most likely with far more experience on the older models.

    Stick to the genuine Honda clutch kit and I'd get a reputable Honda specialist to fit it.
