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

I was lucky with installing weaker springs in my centrifugal clutch. With weaker springs the clutch engages just above idle for a smooth takeoff and no jerks. The transition between shifts is also very smooth now. The bike is so much more fun to ride that I probably won't be able to finish the rest of my projects!!!!! This solution will work on any clutch that engages too slowly or with a jerk. I used springs that I had scavenged from discarded appliances or tools. The replacement springs were the same diameter as the originals, but the diameter of the wire is slightly smaller.
