Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I like the idea of custom clutch springs. I have a new Tanaka 33 and really like the fiction drive (pun), but the clutch springs are so tight, I get clutch chatter till about 10-13mph on flat ground (small roller). If I am going up a hill, I can pull from 3mph and it will stay engaged as long as the load exists, but then starts the chatter again if not going faster.

Does anyone know if there is a way to change this except going to a smaller roller? My wife is heavy and rides slow (10-15mph).
1" roller Dax Friction Drive and Tanaka 3300 with mods.
