Anybody noticed this too, the small bearing in front of the clutch always has some play. How did you guys removed that?

Regards,

I changed to a serpent WC clutch It's a perfect fit, a much better clutch which is easy to set up. It's also about 10 grams lighter than the original xray clutch(without any options).

Just use the Capricorn WC-Clutch. It's way better than the original one and also much lighter.

Xray pinion's are a straight fit.

In my opinion the capricorn clutch is way to expensive, it's almost double the price of the serpent clutch.

just check to make shore the engine is square to the engine mounts as you can get second gear to mesh up perfectly but end up with to much of a cap on the first gear...
also how old your engine the front bearings not shot is it????
In checking it over after all the suggestions, I realised I am getting some movement when the carby slides for brakes, i have increased the the EPA to reduce the movement but I have gotten to 120 EPA on Brakes and still movement, if I reduce the EPA movement increases

i dunno about the NT1 but on the mugen there is a nut thing on the wire from the brake arm to the servo and all u do is tighten it a bit more, also screw the screws in on the brake pads mabey a 1/4 of a turn then try i again.

cheers
Well the thing is, the bearing is new, the clutch housing is new. So it can only be the trust bearing holder. But still, if that's new, there's still some play. I feel the small bearings are just to loose, so what small bearings are you guys using?

do you mean inconsistent? I thought it was the heat from prolonged braking that caused the fading.
