    Clutch is fine on mine, so no change there.

    Thought the new one was supposed to reduce vibration or something?

    Some Gen Is vibrate at low revs, some more than others. Apparently its related to the clutch hub damping, and the Gen IIs got a new type damper. If you have a viby Gen I the new clutch hub supposedly fixes it, but if its not a problem, it doesn't make any difference. Mine is as smooth as a Gen II so I see no point to making the 'upgrade', especially at the full price. If I'd got one for $50 or whatever they went for initially then I might have got one anyway.

    Not sure how much faith people have in the stock bash plate.

    Pic is of an 80kph off on wet bitumen, 2010 Outback model. Insurance write off.

    Bike was 39ks and 4 years old at the time, $16500 payout.

    I was happy with that.

    I was more than happy with it, I expected 10-12k. QBE.

    So I used those funds and bought a Ural for different level of excitement!

    Oh that's familiar! Did you put the standard can back on Timbrell? I remember when I fitted that MC can to the bike it woke right up! Very impressive. Sorry to see you still have the beast for sale, 'twas a great machine.

    Only when it was put up for sale Bill. Certainly much better with the MC can on. Sounded much better too!
