    Blued Clutch Bell

    Hey I took out my car today and when i got back I noticed that my clutch bell got very hot started to blue because or the heat. I have a 2007 model tornado XL that is completely stock, except for the Throttle Linkage setup. I was wondering if anyone knew the cause of this and how do I fix it?

    RE: Blued Clutch Bell

    OMG you got blue bells[X(] if you are gradually giving your car gas it is not uncommon to turn the clutch bell blue. But also at the same time your burning up the clutch[] when your ready to go GOdon't piddle around about it[:-]and your clutch will last a lot longer

    this is also a problem sometimes when the idle is too fast and the clutch is trying to engage.

    The clutch bells blue from the heat because there not hardened steel, they're mild steel. The bluing won't hurt anything.

    RE: Blued Clutch Bell

    The blue on mild steel indicates that its curing to a temper, uneven heat creates hot spots, hot spots create slipping..............yea sure there is not a thing wrong with the blue, you could make it look better and paint flames on it to. There all going to turn blue a little and a lot less if the clutch works right and you drive it properly........................and I'm getting tired of pee in my corn flakes[>:]
