What Size Holesaw?

After much thought about the GP - I've decided to keep it. When JB dyno'd the motor it was without side panels so I have decided to cut a hole in the side panels to keep her running right. Question - what size holesaw is best for a 35mm Mikuni?, I've blagged a new 63mm Starret of my mate and think t...

Re: TS1 Clutch explosion!

The AF 6 plate cassette looks the real deal - but at 400 quid its not cheap.

But as i done my b@11@x on the rest of the engine, I want to buy once with the knowledge that its the best and can easly cope with 26hp at the rear wheel.

It aint cheap for a reason!
