Default V One RRR Clutch not engaging


My V One has not been broken in yet, but as I started it up today to begin the process, I realised the clutch was not engaging the wheels, even at half throttle. I've loosed the clutch spring to 0.6mm but this seems to have no effect. It also seemed the the gears where not making good contact with the other gears... but this has been fixed. Should I loosen the clutch more?

On another matter (which may be related), there is excessive amounts of oil on or near the flywheel, im not sure where its coming from???

thanks for your help

if your braking your motor in? then your motor would more then likely be too rich to engage the clutch from factory during the brake in process. if you have built and shimmed the clutch correctly wait until your motor is ready to be driven and slowerly lean the high side until your clutch engages at about half throttle, your motor should still be fairly rich at this point. you might also want to move the clutch spring back in to 0.8 to 1.0 as 0.6 might bog your motor to much.
