Clive Worrall sent me the following which I copy here for Silk Owners
In case anyone of your biking colleagues at the Scott club mentions Silk clutches any time, I am getting a few plain clutch plates cut and this will enable owners to put a Triumph seven plate conversion in. The drive plates are thinner and the friction area is better material and smaller, on a slightly wider diameter. In the Triumph they improve the drive and action of the clutch significantly so they have got to be better arrangement for a Silk clutch which is prone to slipping once the plates have bedded in. I can get the friction plates but don’t get any discount so they can source them for themselves from a Meriden Triumph dealer and I supply the single plain plate needed to make up the set or I could get them and put a small mark up on. The plain plates are going to be about £10 inc p& p. The triumph set is about £85 delivered to me, but at the moment you have to have the plain Triumph plate that is incorrect for a Silk. This item could be given or sold to a mate for a Triumph for a clutch locking tool or a spare?
Is it possible to put this information in Yowl? I would appreciate it if you could. I shall put an Ad in the old Bike Mart to see if they are wanted
Best regards to you
