Talking Great Information!

Thanks for the advice, and information! I apologize that I wasn't really clear on the fact that it was behaving a little strangely in third and that was the reason for looking around in the first place after it was verified with my mechanic that was slipping some. He told me it's high season right now and that I'd have to leave the bike there for an undetermined amount of time; which I don't want to do. I've sourced out the Barnett wet dry plates and replacement springs from a local distributor, and will do it up myself. I'll try and throw in some pictures along the way and make it fun for everyone. Now that I've heard this I'm happy to stay with a dry clutch.
