Not sure, didn't see any numbers or anything on them. The clutch actually felt pretty good. Dry setup. It worked good enough that I don't plan on changing anything there.

Oh, and I checked over the shift tower, no cracks. I looked really close a few different times.

Default what a story

id heard mention of your bike before i think it was in dr dicks tranny reinforcement thread about it being a 60's hot rod. after i saw this thread i did a little searching last night what a story trade a dirt bike for it no idea what it is you start posting on here someone notices the dytch cylinders you git it running and end up having to tear into it find out its a 3.25x4 9/16 than someone notices homemade bracket on frame turns out his buddy was the last registered owner in the early 80's you gotta luv the xlf . very cool bike with a history good luck with your build seven im sure its not happening fast enough for you but it'll be worth the wait!
