Re: Blata origami b2 broken clutch
The guy you got it from did not know what he was doing. That's probably why he sold it, did not have the bucks for a real clutch. The winter before, the C1 was in my wood shed, I got it out in mid Spring. I started it, revved it and the engine came to a stop, locked up. When the new clutch sat all winter the crappy alum under the glue turned to powder, the pad came off and wedged in between another pad and arm.
The C1 clutch bell 78mm bell and 76mm OD clutch is to small for the 80mm Blata bell, the B clutch is 78mm. 1mm is the space between the pads and the bell, on a C1/B1 clutch in a Blata bell would have 2mm, way to much. Like that you would wear the pads in no time. If your engine is revving to high before they grip, you have to much space. My BZM has a 80mm bell, but I have a new spare 79mm so when the pads wear enough I put the smaller bell in the clutch housing.
Your clutches are slipping to much with that much space, they might grab to late, and if you back off at all they will slip.
