OPTIONS

STR Clutch Kit:  Best suited for those who enjoy spirited driving and is well suited for street and occasional race use. The STR Clutch is available in single and twin plate configurations, and matched with a unique clutch cover which provides a factory clutch pedal feel. The result is a race ready clutch that can be easily driven around town.

A performance street / occasional track set-up good for MINIs with up to 300-350 whp, yet delivers with 'stock-like' pedal pressure perfect for daily driving. Works great on the track for 250 whp MINIs.

Unfortunately, the STR Twin Plate Clutch Kit has been discontinued.

Grand Touring Clutch Kit:  the latest development to our clutch lineup and retains all the technology from our Racing Multi-plate Clutches, but with the addition of our unique “floating pressure system” to provide a smooth and chatter-free driving experience.

The Grand Touring clutch kits are designed for daily driven high performance vehicles. GT clutches provide the comfort of the stock clutch’s pedal feel with improved durability.

NOTE:

Use new OEM Flywheel Bolts (not included) - since the Giken Flywheel is 3mm THINNER than the stock flywheel, bolt length MUST BE CONFIRMED before assembly. It may be necessary to reduce bolt length by 3mm in order to prevent obstruction.

THE OS GIKEN SOLUTION

The STR series single plate clutches were designed for daily driven high performance vehicles. STR clutches provide the comfort of the stock clutch’s pedal feel and the strength of a race ready setup. Whether it be a lap around the track or a trip to the corner store, the STR clutch equally handles each task with ease.

Discs
The STR1CD kit utilizes full face metallic clutch plates to achieve high torque capacity from our clutches. This allows use of much softer diaphragm springs to achieve equal or better torque capacity compared to our competitors with substantially less pedal effort.

Clutch Cover 
The specially designed clutch cover contains a unique leverage mechanism for the diaphragm spring, resulting in a higher clamping load of the clutch disc(s) while also reducing pedal effort. These diaphragm springs combined with the special OS Giken Release Sleeves provide a much easier to operate clutch.

Clutch Housing
Integrated ventilation holes reduce heat generated inside the clutch system and allows for friction plate dust to exit outside the clutch system, thus increasing reliability and safety. Both the clutch housing and flywheel are chemically heat treated to handle extreme conditions. Increased power output typically requires more torque capacity(friction) in order to hold. This often leads to more heat being generated

Flywheel
The hardened steel alloy flywheels provide superior durability and life than aluminum flywheels, which also results in quicker and predictable engine response. We develop our own flywheel design to maximize our design and engineering philosophies into a no-compromise, complete clutch assembly.

NOTE: The stock 'twin-mass' flywheel uses sprung plates to absorb gearbox vibrations. The Giken unit is a single mass unit which may increase gearbox 'noise'.

THE OS GIKEN ADVANTAGE

OS Giken Clutches: Through our research and development of high performance engines, we realized the need for the production of higher quality, more durable clutch systems to meet the rigorous demands of race and sport driving. Our OS clutch is able to transmit engine revolutions and output to the drive train without loss. They are made of the highest quality materials and their durability is second to none. Our continual research and development has brought about many improvements and we are confident that our clutches can meet the demands of even the most heavily modified vehicles.

What is the difference between an OS Giken clutch and another companies clutch?
Through years of development and since its first introduction to the public in 1983, OS Giken clutches have always focused on extraordinary durability, drivability, and effective power transmission. In order to properly develop a clutch system to maximize drivetrain performance, OS Giken determined that it would be most effective to engineer and manufacture clutch kits as a clutch/flywheel package. By doing so, a clutch kit can be installed which has already been properly matched to your MINI. Additionally, the design, engineering and manufacturing of OS Giken clutch kits promote improved durability (through friction plate material which is carefully selected and alloyed so that the plates match with the materials of the flywheel and center plate), maintained drivability (through revised leverage mechanisms to provide higher disk pressure while reducing pedal effort), increased longevity (through a superior design and usage of extra manufacturing processes for strengthening).

Read OS Giken's FAQ's.

In 1975, OS Giken made it's memorable entry into the racing world with the its unparalleled Four Valve DOHC TC16-MAII/TC24-B1 engine and firmly established itself as one Japan's most innovative race engineering companies.

Because all of OS Giken's designs and concepts are based on sound engineering and quality manufacturing, their reputation for reliable performance and durability is unparalleled.

Consequently, OS Giken’s drive train products are commonly the first choice for professional race teams in Japan, because in order to finish first you must first finish the race.

When the time comes, 'overhaul' kits are available.

Note: Depending on inventory, this product may need to be supplied from the manufacturer overseas. Delivery 'may' take 1-2 weeks or sometimes over 4 weeks.

How to find the right Clutch Replacement for your MINI Cooper
Created: June 19, 2015
Identifying the correct MINI Factory Clutch Kit can be confusing. The part number varies depending on the production year, Cooper or Cooper S, and engine type. The chart below should help you find the correct kit. The clutch on the Mini is designed to function properly at a given horsepower figure (plus some headroom).  As the Mini engine gets upgraded producing more power than stock, the increased horsepower can overpower the stock clutch's clamping force and/or the friction material on the clutch disc.  This can cause excessive clutch slip and the net result is a burnt clutch making the Mini non-operational. 
R55 / R56 MCS Clutch Bleeding Instructions
Created: March 29, 2011
The clutch operates using brake fluid. It draws off the brake fluid reservoir via a black tube on the side. Fluid flows from the reservoir into the cylinder above the clutch pedal (when there is a negative pressure). Then when the pedal is pushed the pedal cylinder pushes fluid through the tube into the clutch slave cylinder which activates the clutch.
