Re: Cheap 5/6 plate clutch

Interesting. I’ve used the Readspeed but warped a couple of steels and ended up with bent springs, then went on to use the Newfren version but with the MB springs, this up until recently has proven to work well and no doubt both would be fine on a lesser powered engine, but I noticed last time I rod...

Re: Wales Coast to Coast?

Sounds like something I’m probably going to be up for. Yes I’ll have a slice of that.

Re: Mugello 240 ??

Can’t remember when exactly but maybe a year or so ago there was a recall on these kits as the piston to bore clearance was to tight, wonder if you’ve got one that somehow slipped through the net? Worth checking.

Re: Mugello 240 ??

Yes you could retain your existing crank and use the 70mm Mugello cylinder to get you to 240 cc or why not look at the RT kit which is cheaper than the Mugello. If it were me and for all round cheapness I’d be looking at a Rapido cylinder, head and piston. Remember your GT crank comes with an 18mm s...

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

I've been running a BGM Mk3 Clubman on my GT240 for about 4 years now having had mostly expantions on other enginers (Avanti, TS1, Mugello) and can say that it runs very well through the gears with a smooth flat power curve and tops out about 75mph. Ive never had any over heating problems with it b...

Eden was saying over on fb a while back how good the fran race was on the GT kits, much more so than the super tourer which he considered quite peaky despite the name.

Re: 225 Cylinder Head Profiling

I’ve often wondered how it’s done and thought of using one of those profile combs you sometimes see to get the profile from the piston then transfer that to the head.

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

What did you end up with? Point taken about the Gori, not the first time I’ve heard that.... interesting to know about the BGM... I bought a second hand NK road that was brilliant but the down pipe constantly cracked due to age and corrosion then I swapped to a cst3 now that is brilliant and no gro...

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

If you’re worried about fitting and noise forget the Gori, the one i had was awful (not on gt186 I hasten to add but awful is awful) can’t comment on the bgm or the Avanti but have heard it said that the small diameter tail pipe on the bgm can cause gassing up issues, used a tsr but it didn’t suit m...
