fwiw, the ac clutch coil is like 2 to 5 ohms, like a 50 watt load. might not be a big deal if it solves more problems than it creates.

scanning this, it looks like you can expect very roughly about 80 foot/lbs from an automotive ac clutch.

in perspective, you could put one on the output shaft of a ninja 250, and if you never used first gear you might get away with it.

they make larger magnetic clutches though, in some AWD, or a larger vehicle in need of AC.
