Started to get into my clutch...
 
Wow .. This is uncharted waters for me & my mate ... Day one was only a few hours of work time ... Went some what well.. It is a real learning curve...
I love it... Blew the clutch in this Valk. at 122k ... I had another one to ride so it wasn't a oh my gosh I have to fix it NOW... Worked on a few other Valks. during the winter... Now it was time to start my favorite valk..
This is the one I'm taking to AK this year....
The damper plate went kaput ... That's what the little eyelet rivets are... Will know if the basket is bad ... Sometime today.... As I'm not a fast worker... We only work a few hours at a time ... With farm chores and life.. And of course ADV bbs........
Here's a link to photos .. Will keep ya'll updated.. From time to time....
The Clutch on this Beast is underneath...
Yeah yeah it's not a DS... But I do use it like one .....:poser :ricky :thumb
