Re: Primary drive poll

I used to run an enclosed belt drive.

NOW I run a chain....LOL

Re: Finnicky clutch

is the hub run out okay, is the key a bit too proud in the keyway? this will make the hub wobble.
you might try a ramjet, if you have a lot of in/out of the basket when the clutch is disengaged, this gives you the grab and creep.

Re: Low compression

dont forget intake valve close time, this can change the amount of static compression you get.
latter closing means there is less cyl vol to compress for a given stroke (valve being open as piston is rising)

yes I'm still alive..... :wink:

Re: Clutch push rod and adjuster screw tearing each other up

have you tried the screw with a ball bearing in the end?
I have this same one going on 18 years, you put a dab of grease on it.
your free play on the arm at the tranny is the issue, not at the handle bar
you have a mouse trap?

Re: starting her up after rebuild
