Exclamation new

Here's a couple new things I got today. The new drilled sliding flyweights and the carbon body support.

Here is a description of the new weights..

Presenting these newly machined flyweights for use in your Centax clutch. Different from the original versions, these flyweights have been machined from a solid piece of material, where previously they had been injection moulded. This difference in manufacturing along with the use of carbon & graphite results in a denser material that makes the weights harder and therefore longer lasting and able to perform more consistently.

One other thing that makes these shoes better is the way they pivot, so instead of trailing flyweight, these are pushed out making for a slightly more aggressive clutch. Each of the 3 weights in the set also features a second hole into which the user can screw in a grub screw. This allows the racer to further increase the aggression of the clutch as it engages.

Getting my 960 ready and was wondering if I should put any spacers behind the flywheel cone,As maybe it will reduce the amount of shims in the thrustbearing carrier. and if so how much shoud I put there

I do not use any washers behind the cone. I do not like putting that shim up against the front bearing of the motor.

I will try to get some measurements on the clutch for you soon. I have been using the longer spring and new flyweights but have not taken any measurements. I'll try to get back to you on this soon.
