Hello again,
I have my motor apart,
Replacing Pistons, rings cam chain guide ,
starter gear,

Also found my clutch basket had a broken spring and my metal plates are blued a bit,
Fiber plates measure good, but heasitant to reuse them,
Got a decent basket off of eBay.

Clutch springs were out of spec , probably why it was slipping ?
Ordered ebc springs

First question is on fiber plates
Mine are measuring 2.88 to 2.94
Should I give it a go with them ?

I was looking at 650 direct they have fiber plates for 9 dollars a piece.
Has anyone tried them?
Or should I pony up for a name brand?

Another question is my cam chain,

The bike shows 13,000 miles.
I guessing that I might as well switch this out while I’m at it.

The cheap rebuild idea, is already long gone.


Thanks again for any input

Painted the engine the other day , it turned out pretty good.
40degrees out
Paint can in one hand , heat gun in the other🙂
