Or, OTOH, the non-flywheel clutch carrier assembly has been known to break the rivets that hold it together. Or, OTOH^2, the bike may have 104,500 miles on the clock. Pull the tranny and give us pics. Gap Season starts in March, so there's time to get on the road again... --Bill PS-- "GapRunr Dual Sport Touring" Just visited. Nice stuff. Your store?
