I agree William. If I hadn’t converted mine to a 600 I don’t think I’d use it half as much. I remember when I first rode it in anger, not just to work and back, in 07 around the tt course chasing my dad on his Shadow, I thought what a sweet handling bike. If only it just had another 10horse power....The bottom end has been together since 1977,
Used for road and raced when the twins went bang !!,
Standard gearbox and clutch,
Super little Bike, Just wish they were little faster,
Can't see why they were not made as 600 cc, Like a Panther ?.
I was having issues with clutch 'sticton' or drag with my clutch. After consulting the experts in clutch friction materials at EBC in the UK I was told by them that ATF should NOT be used in a motorcycle clutch as will cause the formation of gums on and IN the friction material and the only fix is to replace with new, not ATF contaminated bits.Well Dave , You have solved your own problem !!,
Don't use ATF, It's too thin !,
Should be engine oil.
I was timed on my Blue Road Comet at 99.8 mph On a flying 1/4 mile once,
But I nicked the cylinder head and 36 mm Dellorto Carb off my Special.
