Hi All
Just rummaging through Ebay and came across this
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BSA-A7-A10-BELT-DRIVE-BOB-NEWBY-BRAND-NEW-/321620271936?&_trksid=p2056016.m2516.l5255
Anyone know about these clutch kits?

Thanks in advance
Pato

G'day pato.
I'm sure they work well. But that one won't fit the plunger mainshaft.

I've got one on Bender and very happy with. Bob was a pleasure to deal with.
It puts up with a lot of abuse  *whistle*
I highly recommend
My engine is the pre unit not semi unit type.
The ratio is 1:2 not 19 or 21/43
 so consider impact on your gearing. I do all my gearing changes on the back wheel

G'day Terry.
Yes it is mate. As usual all the good bits go before the gates open. A couple of guys from my club are vending so have a list of parts needed by others.
What you after?
