As a sidenote, and IMHO, never run OFNA brand clutch bells with aluminum shoes. Not all bells have the same diameter. OFNA has the largest diameter of any of the major brand bells. They caused problems with my Ascendancy 4-shoe clutch. On a new installation with OFNA bells, only the shoe tips would engage. My buggy was completely unrunable unless I was prepared to burn/wear them in. And this wasn't going to happen in a short time. I don't have the measurements handy, but the OFNA bell diameters were just outside the stated working diameter of the Ascendancy clutch. WerksPro, Ascendancy and JVD are all the same, so I'd take note of the possiblility of excess slippaage with OFNA bells.

When your kit wont "fire up" and you're askin' for help, let me know (WAY ahead of time) that you put a gasoline and 2-cycle oil mix in the tank!!
