Good guide. However the chain wheel corks should be thicker than the ones in the friction plate

Hi Owen,
I should have made it clearer in the title that this guide is only for the C10L, C11G & C12 clutch.  This clutch has the chain wheel at the back and doesn't have any corks.
Thanks to both you and Ian for your comments.

God informative item. I find it easier and cheaper to buy new plates. Sad that new is more economic than replacing just the corks.. :-[  Griff

Cork enough for 2 plates cost less than £7.00 inc postage....  not sure that you can buy two new plates for that, but that would certainly be easier, but then it would be easier to buy a bike that didn't need any repairs  ???

Sometimes it's a good feeling having done it yourself  ;)

That's exactly it. We'd all have an easier life, and most likely be better off, if we just rode round on Hondas!

When i made mine, i glued two cork sheets together, for the thicker ones.      worked good.
