Update-got the bike back together this afternoon. man is this clutch weird !! i fired the bike & warmed it up - cringed & banged it into 1st,waiting for it to lung forward like it did with the standard clutch after sitting for awhile. to my surprise it went into gear nicely-so i gassed it a little & it actually started to move. after some fine tuning & pissing my neighbors off,it works like a dream. still very weird...but i think i like it. a good day in the mountains will tell more. thanks to all.
