New part to chop up :)

Dual mass is coming out tomorrow, and you will be shocked and surprised that once again I need to know what's inside, so I am going to dissect it.

More pics here of clutch work if interested:

I do have a fascination in knowing exactly how something works to its entirety. I have seen photos previously, but I really would like to see exactly why it's failed.

What's a clutch?
And who is this dual mass character?

Dual mass must be some sort of swine, mine has squealed like a little piggy for some time. Clutch must be like a tyre, makes lots of smoke.

I understand the design principle of the dual mass, but also have to keep in mind that many people who fit a single mass to the ssg have issues. If the clutch on order doesn't cooperate, I may have to beef up an oem dual mass.

I guess the real answer is the the design, but more so I like to see if the design can be improved for my application.

I guess a good example would be that my better half wanted a goped scooter, one of those 23cc no license required ones (now illegal, but legal at the time). I said they were rubbish and could do better. This is the result:

23cc race two stroke, 6.5hp, 4 speed semi automatic, front and rear suspension, etc.

Unfortunately, I did too good a job, and the thing was in band and up on one wheel most of the time, and she was too a scared to try it lol.

I just like messing with stuff lol

The mannequin, it ended up smashed lol. Came home from a work do, and Shell decided to dress it in black with a gas mask and beenie, and put it behind the front door to greet me. Needless to say, I have the fight, not flight instinct lol

Hmm, chopped it all up, not exactly as I have seen them in some drawings, etc. Have posted photos to flickr, now just have to work out how to link them here. I have used up most of my photo storage on this site
