Learned a lot about new clutch. Took a lot of weight off it. Still need to take more off... Went from 77 grams to 64 grams and looks like it needs to be in the 40 gram range to really smooth the hit out. Also need more static in clutch. At 545lbs of spring... Need 600lbs or more static.

Really really like new carb...

Heres the big sell for the Lectron....

No dumping fuel to adjust the carb. From the as shipped configuration, I am 1/4 turn richer on the needle and 3/4 turn leaner on power jet. I'm 1 turn richer on the idle jet to get 12.7 on startup. 1/4 turn on power jet us equal to .3 afr or 1 numbered jet size.
