Egli Clutch -update

Hi chaps , I posted here last week about the somewhat dysfunctional clutch on my 'new' Egli. Being Mossey built, no-one seems to know what's in it, least of all the new mob who've not yet got back to me(ho hum) but the consensus seems to be a V2. Now, the plates in said clutch are pretty much FUBAR'ed and I need a new set, still, what do you expect after 600 miles! Do any of you smart people know:
1) where I can order them from
2) How many there should be
3) Can I fit plates from another bike=ducati? springs to mind.

I also spoke to Russell at Vinparts who simply declared it's not one of his, so that's a dead end too, seemingly.

Gotta say chaps, much easier with the Scotts, am I now enjoying the 'vincent experience'?!

Any advice absorbed gratefully

A tutto gas

"I also spoke to Russell at Vinparts who simply declared it's not one of his, so that's a dead end too, seemingly".

Paul, I think I said a bit more than that. Like having talked to someone that has one that it was not a Suzuki clutch. Also that it did not look like a V2.
I did also say that you had 2 choices for a fix and they were to buy a new clutch and to google Mossey and ask him.

Now off to sort out Mr Metcalfe and his little problem, his damper NOT his liking for trains:D

talk to Colin Jenner at Conways , it sounds like your clutch was draging and not disengaging with the clutch lever in and getting hot. My v2 was doing the same and the cure was to get colin to work wonders on the clutch arm cover and this give the clutch more lift thus stopping the dragging.

update on the update

Well, I've ascertained it IS a Vee 2 clutch, confirmed by Len. Furthermore it does take Z1000 plates, however I spoke with Colin at Conways, at Peter's suggestion and he was most helpful. There is a clutch plate array and spring set that Godet has developed for this clutch and he's getting one of those for me. They(Conways) also plan to bring out a replacement cover to allow more clutch lift, another mod for the future.
It would seem that I'm getting somewhere at last, thanks to you guys and this excellent forum. Special un-thanks go to........well, that can wait!:cool:

Vee 2 is a company in Perth, Western Australia. V3 is based in Melbourne and has no connection with the former. The clutches sold be the VOSC and Vinparts are sometimes referred to as 'Vee 2' by owners who don't know the background - they are very similar but not the same thing. I don't think Vee 2 make their clutches anymore, when they were imported to the UK the final price was very high.
 
V2 Clutch

For anyone that is interested, Brook Henri (V2) has not manufactured or supplied V2 clutches for Vincents, or any spares for V2 clutches for Vincent use in a very long time.

Having contacted Patrick Godet for clarification, he confirmed that he does not carry any spare parts for V2 clutches and in fact, uses the same clutch on his Egli-Vincents as we (Vin-parts International) supply. These, as Plasticbeer is correct in saying, have nothing to do with V2 clutches. They have a totally different design and are manufactured in the West Midlands.

How do I know all this? Because I do my homework before I give anyone the wrong advice. :)

I love the ambiguity in your last sentence, Russ....but I know what you mean. I've just discovered that if I accidentally switch on italics, they can't be switched off again. Hence, bold......
Will your clutches select first SILENTLY? I'll settle for "relatively silently".
