Progressive Manual Clutch
The clutch features a spring damper that facilitates half-clutch use when riding at low rpm or idling speeds.

Thinking about putting a 175cc big bore kit on a new Kawasaki KLX 125cc because its fuel injected. The KLX 140cc is better set up but not road legal and no driving light, the 150cc is carb not FI so lots of messing around.
Review of the KLX 125 in the link below:
That's a really good deal for that machine. At that price, I can park one in CM for when I am there....
Had to take it back again yesterday (I live in Chiang Dao!) as the starter motor and possibly the battery aren't up to the job now. Can't find room for a KLX250 starter so am having the standard starter motors internals upgraded.
For anyone planning to do similar, I'd recommend going through Kawasaki CM to do the job as, although I think they just send the bike down to Chiang Moi, I'd imagine Kawasaki will end up checking the bike and the mods better. There's a few at Kawasaki that seem to know modding the 140 well - think it's the boss there has got a 140 with custom bore and KX100 forks, etc.
Chiang Moi have been sloppy with checking / thinking about things which they should have been aware of considering they've done this mod plenty before.
Any ideas on the weight I'd save switching from steel rims and swingarm to ally? Will have to get my bike weighed...
