    Typical, I post in wrong thread. One of these days I'll actually do something right.

    Yeah, it's the plug that's a real pain in the ass. So just lean the bike and put that fancy funnel in the drain hole :lift and never touch the silly plastic plug again!

    Remove two of the 6 clutch springs and the oil sensitivity is a thing of the past :rayof

    Why wait? It takes all of five minutes :wink: May have to demount the brake pedal is the only hassle, if it doesn't clear when pushing it down. I wish someone would do the mod and report on it. It fixed a 315R's clutch and I'm assuming it's the same evil clutch on the 314, because when it comes to Honda clutches and model years, why improve a perfectly stupid clutch?

    Needs new main bearings.
    I haven't split the cases yet, might as well wait until the whole lot is apart and ready to go back together.
    I hate splitting engines and leaving them around.

    Aha. And know what you mean. Lose track of one part when someone bumps the bench and you are screwed!

    HUGE thanks to Bounder for the EbayUK link. :clap I was originally just going to get the seat plastic, but when I saw the subframe and silencer assembly were also available (ones that do not require days of repair/mods like the junk I have), the "Buy it Now" button got pushed! :D

    Now if it would only stop raining/snowing... :vardy

    We have some here now, pity most of the rest of the country is so flooded and the UK as well!
    Unbelievable stuff, be better off doing trials with a jetski at the moment.
