Hi all - first time post, so please be gentle!!!
I have had a 1958 Huntmaster for the last seven years, and have never been happy with the clutch action.
Bite has always been on the edge of the lever pull, and it is either on or off (not at all progressive)
As we are laid up during the chilly season, i have used this as an opportunity to strip down and replace a few bits.
So new plates (three friction, four plain) pushrod and ball were ordered from Draganfly and fitted.
Late Huntmaster (with the GB box) is the one with the extra friction plates in the basket, and i can confirm it is the correct one fitted.
The dimensions of the centre matches, according to one of the other posts we found on this forum.
Double checked the length of Pushrod, which is 9 13/16"
We made sure that all the plates slide freely in the basket (licking the edges with a file to ensure there are no burrs)
Upon reassembly, we are still getting pretty much the same action.
Some of 'the boys' mentioned that I should just remove one of the plates, but this doesn't work at all, as there is too much slack, even when the springs on the pressure plate are graunched up.
I am out of ideas, and have tried adjusting everything (cable side on gearbox adjuster and lever as well as gearbox side on the operating arm)
Any hints, tips or devine intervention would be greatfully recieved at this point... I ride with others that have 250 - 500cc singles, and need my clutch to keep me back!!!!
Thanks in advance,
