For those of you planning on using the f160 clutch pushrod seal retainers (much easier to call 'em 'bobbins')

You must trim the piece down to 27mm.
This makes up for the different pushrod to actuator distance AND will allow for the 3mm movement the actuator.


end transmission.

I wonder: would a set of washers and a tube section adding up to 27mm work just as well? It'd bounce around a bit, but that shouldn't effect anything? Sorta like this: |=|

i dont see why not.if the washer managed to fall off the end between the rod and actuator, you could have problems though.

George-

i just used your idea, thanks. i used a thick washer and can't imagine i wouldn't have bigger problems first if there was enough slop for the washer to fall through.

thanks a ton-

I just got a package from Bobby with 4 Bobbins
Alskee is meeting me in midtown tomorrow and I am swapping them for his gasket set
So Soto, TT and Pete you guys can use the other 3 if you want
But you have to follow Bobbys Specific contribution request that comes with each Bobbin
Scouts Honor.
I saw Roskos in place and it looks quite effective
Trim them like he says and you should be good to go

Cant wait to try it on my bike....
Sorry I will miss you guys this weekend

sure, tubing and washers whatever. Just as long as it won't bind, compress or flex you should be good to go.

Make sure you have a bit of freeplay w/ the clutch lever pulled all the way in! Be sure it doesn't bind.

27mm is the measurement for my bike, should work for all the cb350's unless your seals are seriously recessed/ protruding or something.
