Aaron....you got the stuff before you left right?.... I can't remember.

And hey...look at the sentence above.... I'm like a soldier "Left Right"...hehe.

Going down to measure some NOS clutch springs.

So..Aaron...you are back in the US of A?

Yeah...well here it's 35 degree, drizzling and I'm measuring 175 clutch springs....beat that!!!


BTW 175 racers....correct it in your manuals. JohnnyB has found another error in ALL the 175 data from Honda and Aftermarket.
Brand new OEM clutch springs (just checked 12 of them) are between 28.1 and 28.3mm in free length....way more exciting than any old Superbike Tire Test at Daytona.

PS. Note that the CB200 Honda service manual sites the proper specs. Service limit is 26.7mm

I'm not positive on this...I'll have to check the rule book..but I think Mladin is the ONE EXCEPTION where you can wish a wreck on someone for your own enjoyment. They might have changed the rule book and no one told me....but I know last year a whole bunch of people were wishing a wreck on Mladin for their enjoyment.

Definitly would have liked to see him drop some points last year as Im a Honda homer. As for this year I would like to see it atleast start on a equal footing...if there is such a thing in AMA Superbike ?
