SON OF A BISCUIT!!! While doing the factory pro detent mod to eliminate false 5-6 neutral as well as make it easier to find neutral I discovered the clutch pressure plate is cracked up. I believe it probably happened because I started using engine braking more aggressively. I ordered a new billet piece and did the 2 day shilling to get back on the road. The bike is used as daily transportation so I baye to have it down. The broken piece was very difficult to get out. The spring pockets are spread out locking it into the Adler slipper piece. I dont have a clear cover yet but the pressure plate ordered is black with a red spring retainer . I tried to braze the piece for a temp fix but then noticed the other cracks.

I detonated mine, but out of stupidity. The DB stuff is nice kit. The clear cover is so cool that I can't help but look at it every time I approach the bike. You'll be happy over the loss.

I cant afford the clear cover yet. They look really sweet and I intend on getting one or going dry clutch at some point.
