Can anyone help with information or pictures of how to fit a Honda CJ 250t clutch to my comet as I have just picked up a clutch and want a winter project

Honda clutch

Had you thought about turning it into a table lamp? The Comet would be no worse off, and 'er indoors might warm to you as a home-builder.

i am expecting delivery ,this very week ,of a Conways Clutch for my Comet. I am hoping its as easy (read idiot proof) to fit as they suggest .I will let you know if it turns my humble Comet into a Shadow-Beater:) Still it will be nice to have the bike on the road again after its 3 month lay -off since the Burman clutch cried "enough" and made a bid for freedom through the chaincase.

Best of luck woth the conversion

Seems a bit like stealing when you copy a companies hard work ,I know Conways spend a lot of money getting the correct tooling set up and I think CJ clutch's the back will need extra work to get the rubbers to fit.

Aiy, it's quite a bit of work when I looked at my Conways clutch.

TBH, if your that mechanically proficient that you can machine the bits for yourself, why not figure it out yourself? done it plenty of times myself fitting non-standard bits to Land Rovers and Vincents and tend to come up with better solutions (people still don't understand how I squeezed a defender and rangerover gearbox into a series 3 Land Rover, pah! ammetures)
