Clutch springs are being collected on Tuesday – please let me have your final orders.10th December 2018 at 12:05 am #24437
Clutch springs are being posted as we speak. If anyone wants sets. please let me know.
I received a sample set of the studs last week for approval. They actually look the biz in the Black finish, so I might leave a few sets [ 25% ? ] in Black in case anyone wants a “traditional ” finish as opposed to a “Hi-Po” look.
After next week I will be putting ALL the items on E-Bay and other forums.29th January 2019 at 6:12 pm #24681
been away on the sick list for a couple of months – but back to it now. Finally found someone to weld my exhaust and alloy fuel cell up ! That’s the last ballache job that I can’t do myself. When my pal Brian gets back from his jaunt to the US we can get stuck in. Still trying to get hold of the Dynatek DARC-2 ignition module with built in retard. No point running the Nitrous without …. unless I have an endless supply of pistons.
Clutch springs – still have a few sets left.
Engine studs – little interest in the Gold pass version – so I’ve ditched that idea. They will come in factory Black They look the bollox anyway. Pix coming as soon as I find the safe place I put it !!16th March 2019 at 3:35 pm #24830
The bad [?] news …. one set of studs left. The good news ….. the manufacturers contacted me yesterday to say they’d “found” another 3 sets on the shelf !!!! They said it was probably an overrun, but have agreed to let me have them as part of the original order. That’s my 2 engines sorted then !18th March 2019 at 4:04 pm #24846
Ooo I need another set please29th March 2019 at 4:50 pm #24877
Thanx everyone for the support. I will almost certainly be ordering another batch of studs.
Only 4 sets of clutch springs left.
Additionally I am now seriously looking at getting progressive fork springs made. MOST of our bikes will be suffering from “settled” / worn springs ….. that’s just the nature of the beast.
When I did the same exercise 10 years ago for my BMW Kays [ 100 and 1100 ], the difference was chalk and cheese. Went from being a soggy imprecise steering barge into something far more predictable and fun. They were also tested severely under race conditions by Ben Kingham – winning THREE B.E.A.R.S. Championships outright with RAM springs and shox.
I can get just ONE set made cheaper than off the shelf aftermarket items ….. but if I get 20 – 30 sets ? Probably 20% saving. I now know there are 3 different lengths, so I would have to go for the 2 most popular initially.3rd April 2019 at 9:51 pm #24894
Called to see my spring man [ collect latest order for Kays ] and enquired re: KZ750.
He’s prepared to make a minimum of 40 springs as long as all dimensions are the same apart from length.
I thought maybe 20 of each B1,B2 … that’s 10 bike sets for each model.
As per the Kays [ Progressive, but without seals ] price would be £65 / set.
I’ll be posting up on the other relevant sites to see if there is enough interest to go ahead.
