Would like any recommendations on a good clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel assembly, for my 98 Honda CRV
Thanks so much MyHonda4Fun

Most clutch kits don't come with a flywheel.
Is there a reason you think the flywheel needs to be replaced?

I couple of web searches came up with prices starting around US $200 for clutch, pressure plate, bearing, and alignment tool.

Not for my CR-V, but I've been reading lately that some organic brake pads and clutches still use asbestos as the friction material, and the last time I was looking for a clutch (2017) the ones at O'Reilley were the only ones that said they were asbestos free.

Exedy hands down. I've installed them on several of my Hondas' over the year and they've always performed amazing. This included HPDE events as well.

Thanks for the feedback racoon, I just thought good practice to change flywheel at the same time and slave cylinder
once were in.

I can only speak from experience regarding my CRX, that's the only vehicle I have a lightened flywheel on, it's a Competition Clutch 11.7lb version and I love the way it drives. I have about 6 years on that setup with absolutely zero issues.

I'm not sure how well that would work on a CRX unless you're making a bit more steam, these things thrive on lower-end power. If you're planning on doing offroading (slower speeds) I'd probably suggest keeping the stock flywheel.

i have an '86 4runner. when i changed the clutch out, i wanted a stronger clutch pressure plate. most folks get them for offroading, but i got a 1200lb unit for pulling a trailer better in the hilly region i live. that's about 300lb over the toyota stock, and those little 22re's aren't the most powerful motors. it really helped. iow's, if offroading, and you do have a desire for more steam, perhaps there are stronger clutch options for the little crv. and, fwiw, i didn't change out the flywheel. you can just get it machined if need be. i didn't

anyway, two cents...
