clutch question?

Do you guys keep the 2 big anti chatter washers in the clutch, or toss them? I know on my zx10 I replaced them with a kidder plate (2 steels riveted together with springs between them) but am not sure what you guys do on the 14. It's a race bike only.

Also is it ok to use only 3 of the brocks spacers, the bike already had heavy duty spring when I got it, so I think all 5 spacers would be to much. With it being a 5 spring setup I'm not sure if I could use an uneven number with spacers? If anybody has any they want to sell PM me. Thanks.

I leave it all stock and just run 3 of Brocks spacers ... 5 spacers are just to much for me ..Keep in mind i'm a light weight , so a heavier rider might need 5 spacers ...I have always run the stock springs on the gen 1 bikes ...

Got a few more more questions, and didn't want to start a new thread.

I just bought a litz revalved shock, but it doesn't have a spring, how hard is it to put a spring on? And should I tighten the spring to where the stock one is? Also, where should I start with the compression and rebound?

How far you stretched Cody? At your size and if you are under 8in stretch, the stock spring can work. The Spring can be changed by just loosening the double locknuts all the way and slipping the spring cup from around the shock shaft. Reassemble the same.

I will be about 8 over, the extensions say they go 9.5 over, but I will leave some room for adjustment. Did some research on where to put the shock preload at and it looks like I just need to set the sag and I will be good to go. The shock is setup for a 64" bike and 190 pound rider. I think I will be a little more than 64 inches, but I'm also lighter than 190 pounds. Just have a few more things to order and I will be ready for the track.
