Just a suggestion, when working on new electrical parts (or any parts for that matter) interior to the engine and new parts, they should be placed on a clean surface to keep contamination off the new parts.

Glad you found the issue and got it corrected. Enjoy the ride!

You're right. Definitely helps to keep everything clean. I know there is a fair amount of trash on the floor as seen in the pics... I typically use a combination of rags, compressed air or whatever else to clean something first, and then install it.

Really, my (relatively) clean bench is covered with other parts/projects etc, so I just laid the stators down on the ground in order to get some pics with nothing else in the background. Well aside from whatever is floating around on the ground haha!

Check the clutch spring plate and the condition of the primary chain.

I put a Barnett extra clutch plate kit and Barnett diaphragm spring in not too long ago. Still seems ok!

And so it should be! That could be your issue as the adjustment is a bit more fussy without the spring plate and sometimes it take a few miles for the clutch pack to bed in. If the throw out bearing is worn it can also give a spongy feel. The alternative angular contact bearing helps give a good clean bite point.

Well it's good to know that upon deleting that spring plate the adjustment is more difficult. That might explain some of this haha.

I have the 7200B in there now... Cheapie from Amazon. I'll probably try to source a better quality bearing to put in eventually.
