    Smooths out the engagement. The 4RT clutch has always been terrible in my opinion. Just ask Dennis as he must like those Honda beasts.:confused

    He's not the only one.

    And yes, the clutch kit Dennis sells smooths out the engagement.

    Call him for details. Similar to the old Jitsie dimpled-steels clutch kit. :thumb

    One thing about being in the cult is there sure is more aftermarket parts. These showed up on my door step this pm.

    I bought that same linkage kit and found that there was still some amount of play in the whole linkage assembly after replacing everything, think I read on TC that the oem ones are better?

    Thanks, we will find out. But they are going on some well worn bikes, has to be better than the rusted pins in there now!

    I just saw a 300 available in Alb, NM at Honda Powersports if anyone is still looking for one of these.

    Question: Are there recommendations for rear shock static sag and race sag on these bikes? How about for setting up the front forks? Hadn't run across any info going through this thread, unless i missed it. Specifically, I own a 2005 4RT. Thanks!

    I have yet to meet anyone in trials who measures rear sag. It's crazy. One of the most important settings for a dirt bike. Manual also makes no mention of what the sag numbers should be. I'd love to know how far off we all are.

    I crank my rear spring up 3 full revolutions from stock, Just because I assume it was set from the factory for some skinny European guy in spandex.

    For front forks I go all the way stiff on spring (I'm 190 lbs) and all the way out on rebound. Aids in the front end hop.

    The push test is the most important thing. In trials the suspension had better to work together than anything else. Push down at the font of the seat. It needs to move level front and rear. Sag does not matter at this point. It`s a twelve year old bike. Otherwise replace the fork springs and have the rear shock serviced. For your safety remove the footpeg brackets and check the frame for cracks.

    I need a little help, on a 2017 260 4rt front axle is there a spacer/collar on the disk brake side of the axle. Thanks

    Yes, there is only one and it is on the rotor side.

    Hey thanks, messing with the bike the other day in the barn because weather was crappy, pulled the front axle out, I thought I heard something fall figured it was a collar/spacer, anyways went back down to put it back together and couldn't find the darn thing, then started 2nd guessing myself as to whether there's a spacer or not. Still haven't found it. Thanks again!
