    Agree, I suspect it makes very little difference for road use, maybe if you do a lot of track days and really want to be able to mash on that clutch you'd notice it?

    If it's a mechanical flasher unit then if one side has a slightly higher resistance than the other (poor connection), less current flows and the flasher operates faster. I guess the connections to...

    I prefer the capillary type, they're more accurate and I like the fact that they read all the time - you can see what happens after you stop. Disadvantage is that you have to find somewhere to stow...

    The important think with the sump seals is that there are two different thicknesses for the front one and you have to choose the right one....
