I believe that this whole oil jet misery (the one on the other side of the bike at the CS) is a bit overrated on this forum.. IMO restriction in this jet (even if it's fully cloged) is not likely to destroy the clutch, unless you're sliping the clutch at the rpm limiter on desert like sand or on heavy uphill rides all day... (which would probably kill the clutch anyway:))

It's not the main, neither is the only oil feed source for the clutch, and as you may all know, it wasn't present on early production bikes - so not Meoni's bike is what I'm talking about (and these bikes ran lots of problem free miles as well)

just my $0.02..
