I thought you'd like that 'scientific'

I could compress it easliy with my heel but I'm 225

I pulled the throwout bearing yesterday and checked the clutch arm and everything looks fine. That spring must be really compressed.

I'm going to get a new spring and start fresh and see how that goes. Should I replace the throwout bearing too .. feels fine but I've read a couple of threads wehere the guys did a new clutch and 100 miles later that bearing is gone. I'm not thinking long term right now as I'm not sure if I'll keep the bike after I get it running. I may sell it and my Dakar for a 800GS or keep the both of them and ride one on the Alcan 5000 I'm registered for in 2014
