I mentioned a few entries back I was in the process of having to virtually rebuild a 450 vmx after the previous owner had no idea and just drove it until it finally died .
After some good suggestions here the end is in sight but have just noticed a slight problem and looking for some hints .
The slipper clutch is in a terrible state where at some stage grit must have got in and the alum drive plate is barly scored .No problem as can either face it down or fine wet and dry on some glass .
Slight problem area is the actual slipper material is also scored and the reverse side is even worse .It also looks as if it has been running loose where the friction heat has turned areas a different colourso feel harder than others .
Was thinking along the lines of some cork style material as per a full size motorcycle clutch plates but any other suggestion would be once again appriciated
Cheers Jim
