i bought this doppler clutch pulley and rebuilt it per the instructions in the wiki. the fact that i have to rebuild a $220 pulley before it is even run is ridiculous, but i’m glad i did:

the quality control on this thing is dreadful. 

can’t really tell from the photo, but there are burrs, flashing, and the offset hole was cut out crooked.

my favorite part. hint: look at the springs–

look a little closer–

one of the springs wasn’t even on all the way from the factory. 

i had to grease ungreased bearings, file & sand surfaces so they would fit, and locktite every nut on it. nice try, doppler. should’ve waited for a mykitech.
