Yeah that's a good point about different clocks, I just want to get it on the road as cheaply as possible since it's now a CAT C, there's not much point throwing much money at it.  :(

Yeah the front mount 'flap' whatever the correct term is. I think the tank and the frame are fine, the metal mount has taken the brunt of the force and twisted, so I've ordered a new (secondhand) one from a breaker which hopefully resolves the problem.

Just need to sort out a single round headlight and mounting the clocks after the fairing got destroyed  :'(

Good you can order a new front mount. From memory wasn't sure if it was welded to the front of the tank. Sounds ideal. bolt off / new one on.

Why don't you go for aftermarket Clocks, if you now will run no fairing? Might actually be easier to mount. The original Clocks seem to look twice as big, with none of that front fairing in place. for them to drop into. :)

I just had a quick look and at this time of year you can get a full novice track day for £65 on an open pit day at cadwell

Open pit lane days are not for novices

My mistake it was for a general bike track day. There's options to book either novice intermediate or fast

Hi Matey.

Can i suggest you try using 3 new springs & 3 old springs in a Triangle formation, this will give you more spring pressure than 6 old springs but won't be as heavy as 6 new heavy duty springs... (An old racing trick) to find enough spring pressure without clutch slip at high RPM with the bonus of a lighter clutch lever feel.

Regarding drilling the basket for better oil flow, this is a free Mod that actually works wonders on any wet multi-plate clutch.

Personally I drill all my clutch baskets, I've found it works well if you get a marker pen & mark the location of the steels on the basket, then drill 3mm holes in these areas, I stagger my drilling in a spiral type pattern & slightly countersink all holes drilled, this massively improves oil flow throughout the plates & I've yet to see a dry plate after this Mod.
Hope this suggestion helps?

Thanks Gaz, I'll give the spring trick a try.

I was going to drill 4mm holes, any issues? Countersunk on what side of the basket?

I saw an American site where they cut a small trough from the existing holes in the back plate up to the lip around the edge of the plate. Looks easy and was going to do that as well.
