Originally I always intended to use the bike that eventually became the Turbo TR1 as my test-mule and if the mods work out, transfer them to the Everyday-TR1. Well, things don't always go to plan, do they?
Two things bothered me seriously last year: firstly the bars on my Everyday-TR1 as I just couldn't find any that were both comfortable on the neck and my wrists (after dropping my bike about two years ago and bending the bars that I had fitted back then) and secondly the heavy clutch-pull.
With the bars sorted last time, this mainly left me with the clutch. As I pointed out a while ago, I milled the inner clutch hub's spring posts flush with the outer ring. (I thought!) Turns out, I must have milled them down too far and in fact they were about one millimetre below the outer ring. This in turns means that I had an extra millimetre of preload on the springs (which were stiffer aftermarket items as well!) Plus, I had put a washer on the springs adding another mill of preload, all of which resulted in a VERY MANLY clutch-pull.
So the solution for now is not very elegant, but successful: I swapped the washers around and now there's about three millimetres less preload or in otherwords, approx one mill above the ring.
