Filed under: . . FAIL . ., ..BRN/Bennasar Minnereli clutch in E50..

Speaks for itself…

Pulled the threads of the brass center out of the BRN/BENNASAR clutch. One week ago, Mr Mike Thomas and I had this very discussion, you were right Mike….

hahaha

On to making it out of either stainless, or aluminum, but for now, helicoil and red locktite FTW

Update :

Here is another picture of it from a new rider, who obviously has a better camera than me…. Aron Such a nice dude!

Ps, there is a video somewhere of me riding it with just the 2 shoes in the bell, after I buttoned it back up….

Yes, I know I have no helmet on, Yes I did run that red light……and YES I stopped because it was waaaaaay unbalance and making some fun noises……enjoy!
