Wink Re: Clutch cover screw size?

I replaced all of mine with allen bolt TITANIUM screws- and NO GRINDING-

search ebay - here:

Did both engines when I had to roll the bikes up a flight of stairs
a pittance of the weight of steel and the allen key looks cleaner and tightens easier

There's actually several more on the motors one could replace with titanium- several longer ones-
and it's a little chunk of weight
with a 415 Industrial/Trike chain at half the weight
and losing the stupid heavy steel chain tensioner
and a featherweight alloy rear sprocket
bolted directly to a drilled flip/flop or disk brake freewheel hub to lose the heavy rag joint as well

it takes a kit down in weight actually quite a bit-
still looking for a lighter gas tank- cap at least especially
some day I'm going to get a scale and weigh it all

But a bike that barely weighs 40 lbs that can go 25 or 30
and rolls like a road bike
is a pretty efficient machine

Took the photo of the old '48 dodge near my house
while out on the old '67 Peugeot PX10 here in Jacksonville a few weeks ago
