while draining I did the usual clutch cable ends service, all went well then was wiping the ike over with detail spray and saw this!!!!!

Just as well I bought a complete unit off gumtree a coupla years back...all fixed now.
Really dunno how it happened

With all the horror story's of using Full Syn are you sure the oil didn't do it???

Current Stable: 2014 XC, Honda PCX 150, 125 SYM Havana.

Born in the deepest jungles of India, I was raised by a friendly bear, until I was kidnapped by a pack of unruly baboons who taught me the finer points of swing jazz, all the while being stalked by an incompetent python and an evil but mis-understood tiger... Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .

Years ago an aircraft windshield company who made plexiglass products made windshields and headlight protectors for Victory but has long since quit doing it. They look like this with 4 small pieces of velcro holding them on.



Not the best picture but all I have right now; but you can barely see the cover on there. The velcro is so you can take it off occasionally to clean the headlight.

I still have these plastic covers for the headlight, the dirt goes behind them

You can buy Vic LED lights on AliExpress, they work good, 1 year guarantee etc ...

Only problem Ive ever had with Full Syn was upshifting gears at 5900rpm on the dragstrip.
Occasional missed shifts and engine then hitting the limiter.
Otherwise its sweet.
People run into problems when they use automotive oil not JASO-MA wet clutch rated.

The standard way of fixing oil soaked friction plates on Norton Commandos is to take the plates out, soak briefly in petrol and set fire to them. I've got many happy memories there, and have been keeping it in mind if using non JASO rated Penrite full synthetic ever gives me any problems. It hasn't yet, at 109,000 kms.
