I've just put a Readspeed one in my Rt 225 it's very grippy. Standard clutch was slipping on the compression just on the kickstart.

It's about 45£ for the corks, steels and springs. Done 300K running in in the last week or so and seems fine.

A 4 plate should be fine with that set up , the scootopia clutch plates are good with MB springs and rough the steel plates up a bit and putoline SAE 90 gear oil should hold
