I put a little more toe in alround and found this helped but it still handles a little different but worth the extra grip.

after reading ur posts/advice and the sola link,
i feel the urge to upgrade to the UM210 clutch.
anyone knows how to differentiate the UM210 clutch and the regular one?
I'm asking this as i think mine looks like the UM210 , but not exactly.
I bought my V1S used,and i have no idea whether it's been changed or not.

guys:
i'm rebuilding my engine after a bust up.more on that.
i need to know which orientation is the piston.at the bottom of the piston,it is longer on the bottom on one side and shorter.
as i look from the rear,ie removed the backplate
should the longer end be on the left side or the right?

yes i actually tried it both ways,and guess what?
the wrong orientation will cause the piston to jam on downward stroke,that means there's only one way to fit it.
no c clips huh?ok,must've come from somewhere else.
