Painless Neutral Clutch
« on: May 11, 2012, 07:38:12 PM »

Ever needed to stop for a second? Anyone ever flagged you down to see your neat MOKAI™? Ever encounter water too shallow and end up stalling your motor from sucking muck in your pump? Being able to go to idle and have neutral is just plain nice no matter what you ride or drive. You can start your boat before you get in, you won't have to worry about what direction you are facing when you start, maneuvering and docking are a breeze and for that quick pause you won't have to deal with TRYING  to start that HOT motor! Historically, building these by hand has kept me on my toes in keeping up with demand. In the interest of meeting demand, and making my system absolutely perfect, I have turned to Max-Torque and Pfeifer Industries for their manufacturing capabilities, to produce the newest generation of the Painless Clutch. A Billet Masterpiece of Motion Control!

I am happy to present an entire year’s worth of research and hard work, built into one clutch, that will allow you to
 “Stop your Mokai, Not your Motor!”

This is the best thing that I put on my 2015 MOKAI so far. You should put painless clutch on before trying your new Mokai from the factory.  Thanks for the great product !!!!!

You're welcome, I'm glad you like it! Thanks for the feedback, love hearing from my customers. I know I wouldn't have stuck with the Mokai without it!!  \./8

I'm with you FISH1313. Tom's clutch should be the very first upgrade. Tom has one great product and great service. I have them on both of my Mokai's.

Hey Rob, it will fit on your engine no problem. It's the pump shaft that will likely need modification. You either have the original pinned lovejoy coupling, or the hex profile. My clutch uses the current spline version, and I would need your pump (shaft) so I can re-machine it and add the splines. My wear ring will fit, no problem there.

Yes, I've shipped to NZ before, several different countries actually. Not a problem.

Mine is the pinned lovejoy type.Don't suppose you have a spare reconed shaft you could sell me as well Tom.It will be a while to be without the boat to ship the shaft over to you as well.

I have some shafts and could fix one up for you, but the shaft needs to be removed and installed with an impact wrench. You cannot use anything to hold the impeller blades to remove the shaft by hand with a wrench etc... Then the shaft has to be adjusted so there is Zero runout at the end. If the shaft isn't installed with an impact, the runout adjustment won't hold. Done incorrectly and it will eventually damage the hull bearing, clutch, and pump bearings. So while you don't want to hear this, the best scenario is for you to send me the entire pump so I can go through it and get the shaft set up right.

Been giving this a bit of thought Tom and am now wondering if it would be better to get a subaru engine in the States and get you to set it up c/w new style shaft and pump and keep the Honda as a spare.I've got it back from the shop now and it's running a lot better but still not 100%.What do you reckon?

Once the conversion is done, your Honda motor is useless. I take all the Mokai specific parts you would send me, from the Honda, and adapt them to work on the Subaru. The Subaru has the same crank size as the Honda, my clutch will fit them both the same, your pump is what needs to be modified to work with the clutch. I have Subaru engines in stock for conversions, so there would be no need for you to find one if you decided to go that route.
