I like the way the BDL+15% clutch grabs with authority. Quiet as a church mouse.

It's been more than a year since Alto released this upgraded Spring Plate.
https://www.altousa.com/images/new_p...ess_Rivets.pdf

Has anyone installed this? Any reports of experience with it?


It appears that Alto offers three versions of the Spring Plate
095763 (brass rivets)
095763UP1 (brass rivets) - Amazon - DKirk
Very Few Places to Buy:
095763HD (SS rivets) - MotorcycleID - HawkMotoSport - 2Wheel

I wanted to try the new one, but could not find a supplier here in France. Contacted Alto to find a stockist, who then contacted me to ask what part i wanted. After i told him i wanted the new spring plate he never came back to me. Maybe he was just a distributor and expected an order for hundreds of them! I'll keep trying. Someone must stock it!.

Found a supplier for the Euro people on here, and as a bonus, the same price as the older one.

Fitted the new st.st. riveted spring plate today, i'll try it out whenever we get a dry day.

Just for interest, the new one measured 5.40mm-5.42mm and the old stock plate was
5.24mm-5.26mm
