    Annoyingly genuine clutches always seem to be out of stock. Actually not much meat left on the original one (it's done well to be fair). PJME recommend genuine as the best, but if they can't get them in stock...then needs must.

    Ferodo is a good brand though and I'm not expecting RS 125 power here and it will never be dailied in my ownership so should be fine...

    Ordered one of these for my RS125 years back (Billet Clutch Pressure Plate). I bought this a long time ago too and it's just been sat gathering dust. Not sure if it actually makes any difference, but it's a nice little item.

    Either way it's got to shave off some precious weight from a reciprocating mass, alongside the titanium bolts. Although the stiffer clutch springs probably add some weight back on....you win some you lose some.

    Hhmm, I honestly don't know what a previous owner done to this bike, but they just covered everything THICK with paint. After much scrubbing and cleaning I...abandoned that idea and bought new/used parts instead.

    Brand new TYGA sprocket cover and generator cover. I bought a used generator cover off of eBay for an RS125. sprayed it black and affixed the carbon fibre generator cover on. The original engine is black, and I want to keep the bike close to its original colour scheme/trim where possible, but it'll never be original.

    Can't find what I done with the kickshaft seal or gear linkage seal, so will need to get those on order.

    The oil sight glass had melted, so I'll need a new one of those and will grab some new oil fill and clutch adjustment cover as well as a oil drain bung.

    @ZKJE101 Hi bud,

    Not sure if you're still interested in these? Access to my lathe has been removed for the moment, so I've taken one off of my Cagiva and gave it to an engineering firm to knock up a set for you if you would like them?

    Unfortunately, these are not CNC'd and he said it'll take 2 hours to make. Like mine, it'll be turned by hand. I'm having another set made for myself and asked to make a set for you as well.

    If you're interested let me know, engineering firms are shut for the holidays now, so won't see anything until next year.

    Cheers,

    Calum

    Always wanted these heel plates but sadly they were no longer being made when I was building mine.

    Happy then, when I saw TYGA were manufacturing these. Again the quality is as you'd expect from TYGA... Utterly flawless.

    Pleased to actually have the period correct heel plates for my bike in stunning carbon fibre. Thanks TYGA!

    P.S. Make more carbon for my bike πŸ˜›

    You might have to earth out a wire on the CDI unit on your bike. There are some weird restrictions I don’t know about.
    Like my TZR had a black/green stripe wire earthed out on it…

    @pedrobatista10 I'm sorry to hear that. BMW550d sounds nice though. At least you're still alive and breathing and it is good to hear from you.

    Maybe one day you can get an adapted shifter two stroke kart and enjoy that πŸ˜›

    @Calum What an excellent use of space, and a first rate job!!

    Steel section on the bench and a pillar drill somewhere will finish it off nicely.

    @rraleks

    Who says it’s running lean? Overheating is caused by different things, lean is one possibility only. Check your radiator coolant level please mate...

    No way the crank has a 5.5mm longer throw! It’d of locked solid against the head...

    Please check your radiator coolant level!...

    I ran my bike well lean for 1000’s of miles without damaging the piston. It was only when my head gasket blew and emptied my radiator that it ran it hot enough to eat the piston, in the same way as yours...

    @spookdog yes metal type it seems fine with the rubber gasket but if I can't sort the squishing issue then I'll just go back to paper gaskets

    Thanks, it didn't take anyway near as long as I thought to get it up and running. I've just been doing some final touches.
    I'm going to ride this one on nice days πŸ™‚

    Sadly I badly injured my back at work a few months ago, so I've been unable to do any work on the bike since the injury. My back is getting much better now so hopefully I'll be able to restart working on this project again real soon.........
