This is the adjuster setup that came with the dry clutch.



Check out the threaded collar pressed into the throwout bearing. There's a small flange on the back that sits on the inner bearing race.



WTF??? Only thing I can think is- this is the end of a steel rod that was never cut, and it looks like that from the manufacturing process. Any other ideas?

Also looks like the tap wasn't true in the hole. When I spin the rod, it wobbles slightly. The threads are kind of loose. Maybe that has to do with the wobble. Nut is tight, though.



Ceramic bearing is on the way. Will replace the threadad collar with a titanium piece.

That's just weird. It's not just poor surface finish from tool chatter. It's too checked for that. Though the ring patterns does appear it was turned. I dunno.

Will get a pic soon.
From memory, it has slightly rough machining. Ring patterns but not crumbled-looking.

Was also thinking it could be from heat-treating, but the rest of it doesn't have the same appearance.

This dry clutch steel collar holds a skinny-ass o-ring on the inside ledge.



Don't think an o-ring will survive very long, as it is.
Will make a new part out of titanium.



More weird shit. Here's the other side of this collar:
What's happening here???

Looks like galling and surface cracking from heat/wear.

That bad surface finish is either from a broken tool or a tool with the wrong cutting geometry.

^ This looks like galling. Obviously not from use, so probably a dull tool like Truckinduc says.

But this looks like more than galling. It's hard to tell. vvv I'm no metallurgist tho.

Wrong move, again.

Ordered exhaust tips to chop up for the custom pipes.

Took a long time to get them. Euro tips, not USA type.

Was trying to avoid this diatribe, stamped into both USA tips:



Couldn't find a clear detail photo of the Euro tips. Cost around 1/2 of the USA tips.



Euro tips aren't polished, no problem - but have "aprilia" stamped on them. Not good for my custom bike. Could try to sand & polish it out, but there's more.



The USA tips have nice, removable end tips - that I want to polish and gold TiN coat.
On the Euro tips, the stinger tube goes straight through, and is welded in.

Hope I can return these. Now that I know the stingers will be 1.25 inch tubing, I think I can make one-off tips that will look good.
