Snapshot: Clutch Work

Snapshot1 min read

18 February 2012


A view of sanDRina's internals. She might be dirty on the outside, but she's clean where it counts ;) I replaced all the clutch fibre discs as she was starting to slip in high gear under load. And with all the weight I'm carrying, I consider fibre discs a consumable, just like brake pads. This set lasted 24,000 kms (14,900 mi) and was installed in Mendoza, so it saw me through the ripio of Ruta 40 and suffered in the mud of northern Ethiopia and the sands along Lake Turkana. I was able to work on the bike in Milan Shah's shop in Nairobi. He's an Indian-Kenyan motocross rider with a passion for all things on two wheels and told me I could use his shop to work on sanDRina and get her ready for the road...
