850R flywheel and clutch don't fit?

Post by AfonsoF1999 »

Hi
I just received my new flywheel from Skandix that I ordered for my 850 T5 R. After I unboxed it it danwed on me that the flywheel only seems to be machined for a 228mm clutch, and my car uses a 240mm. It has groves (pictures) on the outer edge and those groves would contact the clutch disk if I used a 240mm. Is it okay to run a 240 clutch? I have a sachs 240mm 850 R clutch on the way and it would suck really bad if I had to send it back. Thanks
Flywheel number: 9454774

That will not hurt. The disc will polish that area with use. Are the dowels and clutch cover bolt holes all in correct places?

I'm still waiting for my new clutch to arrive but from what I've read online I think the bolt pattern is the same. So the groves don't matter? I can catch my fingernail on them so they are not just surface scratches.
And thanks for the reply
