I answered your question on the other thread we have going.http://motorbicycling.com/f4/bicycle...ch-222-13.html
I hope it helps!
Oh yeah, the friction pads may need to be trimmed a little bit to fit very slightly loose in the pockets they fit into, but usually they all work quite well when brand new.
About a month ago, 2 different people had issues with the friction pads after only putting 200 miles or so on the engine. This was a very rare situation.
The solution was to order new friction pads.
I am not suggesting that you should do this......yet.
Let's not put the cart in front of the horse, so to speak.
