Taking the bike out again yesterday, the clutch was back to being a bit close to the mark. I know that the plates etc. need to be changed over the winter and I'm planning on sourcing a good slipper clutch, if finances allow, so that may solve the issue. This will be the first item on the list of what I will need to do and will include change of grips, improved rear tail lights and levers.
Tomorrow night is the first Bikerdown! Dorset event, which I'm really looking forward to. Will keep you updated.
