Hi,
I've just put together a new clutch for my malossi 210 with some lovely parts from sip.
It's a 7 spring CNC basket with a reinforced circlip, honda plates and grooved centre bush. I've used sip 'sport' springs which are marked 'L' in the description.
I do find them a bit excessive in lever pull terms. A bit stiff.
I dread to think what XL and XXL are like!

There's nothing wrong, everything works well ( I'm frigging proper chuffed with it if I'm honest) and their fancy premium clutch cable is lovely too, BUT I definitely think I could get away with less spring tension.

I would like to know what other people are using

The springs in my last clutch were great but they're past their best now- they were white. Anyone know who might have sold them?

The scoot has approx 20bh p

Thanks in advance
Tony

Still looking for advice on this if there's anyone out there with an answer, really just looking for an older style spring with a weight between standard and the SIP "SPORT L"
Thanks again
Tony
