Try changing the oil also - if they put oil in with friction modifiers, that would make it slip badly also.

...I'm hoping that riding it makes that go away. I'm not gonna hold my breath tho. FWI've seen, taking the clutch out of a Wing is not the easiest thing to do.

Changed out the oil with Honda stuff. After getting it started, that was the first thing I did. Good thing too cause that stuff was BLACK!

I do believe the first generation carbon bikes, Graftek, I think they were called? from the late 70s, were carbon fiber wrapped on aluminum tubes, and I really haven't paid that much attention to modern race bikes.

Here you go Pierce, just for a bit of eye candy...

i wonder if you can order that with a live young bird inside it?


ps - That's funny, I was sketching something identical to that back in my Industrial design program 10 years ago, one looked like that, the other looked like small versions of trusses, less cagey.

It's been around quite a while...... The first time I saw it was about 6 or 7 years ago.

Can you imagine trying to keep it clean?

indeed, I'm so sick of the reichwingnuts that populate our local newspaper 'comments' section saying they'll share the road with cyclists when cyclists have licenses and pay road use taxes like they do.

If I may add most bicyclists probaby pay more in taxes. ( in that bicycling is an very expenisive sport) considering most bicycles cost what a good used car cost. and most of us own 2 or 3 (or in some cases 25 ).
