From Shimo's setting at recent KM Cup in Japan, he found his best clutch liking by pre-loading the spring at 0mm and the gap at 0.6, then he took out the 0.1mm shim outside by inserting that under the inside bearing to make outside gap 0.5, 0.4, 0.3,.....
He made it even to 1mm gap outside.
Friendly reminder: He is using aluminum clutch bell

Hara is running a Mugen in Japan at WC, is this just a one off or is he officially a Mugen driver now?

Sounds like a one off, though he does have Kenji as his mechanic. He won the FEMCA offroad running Mugen, onroad running Tamiya and now he's running a Mugen again.
