Default Shim between inner clutch bell and clutch shoes

Hi Guys,

After a while it seems that the big* (*in diameter) shim is trying to eat through the crankshaft. I was thinking about running the motor without them once I get a new pair of 5x10x4 bearings. What the deal that makes the shim placement a requirement anyway? Without the shims the clutch shoes still won't rub against the CB's innerwall......

The shim is just to prevent binding of the shoes and the bearing in the cb. if it doesnt bind with them out leave them out it wont make any diffrence either way.

use the big kyosho washer (keep it fresh), a .2mm kyosho clutch shim washer and then your clutch bell , then shim accordingly as to only leave .2mm of play max also to lessen the wear on your shoes pins and flywheel , use 2 undershoe shims .2mm from kyosho with a tiny bit of teflon lube so it creates a moving part under the shoes and also spaces shoes away from the flywheel more
a lil tip , monty
