    is it a simple bolt on? will it cover your magneto or clutch? is it a hi-performance piece? will it make the motor run better, faster?

    Just to say I hope I didnt step on anyones toes, that was not my intention and i apologize if that is how it sounded to jim or anyone else. I use to work in a machine shop and know what is involved in creating accurate parts and I am glad to hear that everything has been figured out in the kit. When I am interested in purchasing a new product I always want all the info I can get on a product including any problems that some incur and figured there were others like me that would like to know before they purchased it. Now that its all straight EVERYONE BUY AWAY!!! ;) -Justin

    europorsche914,

    Everything's cool, you made me sound like a fly-by-night flunky, know nothing, on this forum...I deserved it! You responded to my email for help ,and I ddn't answer back, and I apologize. I had to take care of my paying customers as best I could, the emails were overwhelming at the time!

    There were quite a few who were willing to jump into the water and buy a kit. I had to make sure these folks were taken care of as soon as possible.

    Nobody likes to be ripped off on the internet...I've given refunds to people who didn't understand the idea of a "real" clutch. They didn't like the "feel" of a gradual clutch.

    I personally don't understand this, but I have been riding motorcycles for years and motorbikes for months. I wanted a clutch for my motorbike that was like a motorcycle.

    Some will like it, others won't

    Ok, I gave it a shot today. I couldn't get it to work right. I need to get a spring to get it to return to the engaged state. I think it'll work ok after that. The lever pin and "housing" are machined so close I feel a bit of drag just turning it by hand. I might put the pin in a drill and run it through some 600 grit paper, see if I can knock off whatever is causing the drag.... Then try it again. Probably next year... All in all it's a hellofa kit for $30...

    Come on File, you just ain't holdin' your mouth right! Slowly review, which table in pics? one of them. I've done it before? in answer to "is it a bolt on? Is it made of aluminum? It can be. Is it going to be shiny? It is custom, remember, whatever you want. Is it a dress up kit for the motor? Nope, but that could be in the works. Better performance you say? That's the whole idea Bud.
