      You mentioned that your clutch slipped for a while after the lithium grease mod, roughly for how long?

      I went all in; Quiet clutch mod and Lithium grease! Works like a charm and the clutch lever take up is so much smoother now it feels like I have complete control of it. I didn't add any extra plates, just just dropped the first friction plate into the basket. The clutch plates and basket were new and I had no problems with o/a thickness, as I said, worked like a charm. Many thanks for the advice.

        Incidentally, I heated the lithium smeared friction plates with a heat gun until the grease became less viscous and almost liquid like before being absorbed into the friction material.

      Your other piece of advice regarding the clutch of smearing the friction plates with lithium grease is quiet clear but for the sake of reassuring me as I'm about to buy a set of discs, is this clutch modification still working well?

      Can you confirm whether the first plate, according to the quiet clutch modification, (the friction plate) , needs to be a new one or can I use one of my old, out of spec friction plates. In other words, does it need to act as a friction plate or just as a spacer whose lugs can jam into the rounded recess at the bottom of the basket?

      Many Thanks,

      Richard

        Hi Richard,
        It acts as a spacer more than anything else.
        A new one would be wasted.
        You also don't need it to be an extra plate, just juggling the existing stack will work fine.
        The lithium mod is still recommended for a smooth take up.
        Works a treat.

        Thanks Jeremy. I think I’ll use one of the old friction plates they’re 2.7 mm or lower then I’ll put the new plates in the prescribed sequence.
        Thanks,
        Richard

      Hi old rider, I'm going to purchase starter leads off exige but was also considering buying coil pack also, I believe you have experience doing both mods ? Any advice would be appreciated , many thanks.

        I've done both but not at the same time on the same bike.
        The two do different jobs. The coils give a fatter spark, which gives better throttle response and improves idling and low speed running.
        The cables allow all the battery's energy to reach the starter motor and ignition system.
        Both highly recommended :)
