that part number is 5x10x4. i just finished building my new tourer and my reference book says 1315, 5x10x4, i can say for sure they are that size. but with WC you only need one inside, and the 2 smaller bearings outer.

Make sure the ear on the eccenter is matching up with the notch on the bulkhead.

sometimes its hard to get the rear bracket to fit into the correct spot. make sure everythings loose so it will slip under and into place..good luck

From the picture it looks like you may not have pivot inserts equal front to rear. Double check that. Also back off the droop screws a bit more. They look fine but that can cause this problem. Hope this helps.


Later

Maybe it will convince you of building a complete 720 around the clutch....

I already had two 720's before i switched to xray, since the beginning i was disappointed with the quality and fit of the 720. Then when i saw the superior quality of the xray and had a test drive with it i was completely sold.
But i'm really interested in the new 722, with the aluminium bulkheads and such, because i really like the quality of my S400.
And Serpent still has that special feeling because it's our national brand.

Serpent has improved a lot since the first 720. The latest products have better fit and a lot stronger. The new line is going to be even better. Who knows, maybe we will set a new std in quality! We are working on it!!!!
