    Springer Fork Extension Idea

    Just put it in the vice and make it flatter. But for the extension idea you are over complicating it. Just make piece of sheetmetal with a couple holes in it. Like 1/8" thick.

    Do New Clutches Have a Wear-In Period?

    I would ride it more and hard to get it hot and see what it does. But if it doesnt help I would stretch the spring a bit . Use side cutters to wedge the spirals apart.

    I find the hillard clutches often have this problem. Rarely on a max-torque or chinese knockoff. I guess the tolearances are tighter on the hillard. But the clutches that come on chinese bikes like the bajas seem to often come in with weak overheated springs that have not enough tension to...

    Here We Go Again.

    That sounds awful. Hopefully you have a hobby that can occupy your down time without stress. Sitting in front of a screen all year cant be good. I worked with a guy that had his hip replaced 8 times! Maybe more by now i havnt talked to him in a while. He hit a tree on a sled when he was a teenager.
