It ends up fouling on the valve cover and slanting diagonally across the rubber. There are two different clamps and I have them installed the...

    Hi! It seems my tacho is showing the RPM wrong. When idling at ~1000rpm, the tacho stays at 0 and just vibrates slightly.

    Good afternoon people. Now I have had the bike for a couple of weeks, I am starting to ride it "properly". It appears the clutch starts slipping around 6000rpm when accelerating. I have adjusted the clutch cable so there is about 15mm +/- travel on the end of the lever before there is any...
