Default End-Play on a Centax 1 clutch?

Hi!

I just wanted to know what would be a normal end-play setting for the first generation Centax from serpent, I mean, how many millimeters shall you be able to pull the clutch-bell out?

Thanks!

Default End Play for Serpent Centrax

0.5-0.9 mm of end-play
Note: 0.6 mm is Ideal

Just a note. Clutch gap and end play are two different things.

By definition, end play should be most mininum (about 0.1 mm or so) and clutch gap should be about 0.3 to 0.7 mm. Bigger gap for more agressive engagement and small gap for smoother engagement.

Refer to Glenn Cauley's article on mytsn on how to set the Centax 1 clutch properly.
