new clutch

Last time I posted it was with a string of folks discussing clutch problems but can't find that.

The slipping clutch turned our to be a "clutch push rod burrowing into spring plate, causing excessive clutch wear." Plus there was a GB seal leak.

Open Road in Newmarkt repaired it under warranty so I felt very good.

Chance it was this way from factory very high. Completly new feel to the ride.

No clutch slave seal leak.
