View Full Version : Pulling Away
05-15-2003, 04:09 PM
Hey guys, when I pull away on my bike (it has a power valve) I have to leave the clutch at the biting point until i'm almost about to change into second for maximum acceleration, is this normal?
Thats for a realy fast start, your slipping the clutch dont do it to often, its hard to learn on an rs how to pull away just takes time:x

Well I can pull away fine but i prefer it to haul ass as where i live there is usually a boy racer in some banged up fiesta crawling up my arse :rolleyes:
I could undersand a gti but its not worth 55 quid for a new clutch for a twat in a fiesta!!!

>>I could undersand a gti but its not worth 55 quid for a new clutch for a twat in a fiesta!!! '87 model AF1 (slipping the clutch in top rather than changing down for km at a time with a pillion, as otherwise it either bogged down, or you dropped a gear and revved the nuts off it) and it survived fine
All the best
Keith what are you chatting about?

especially in the wet.

Think the board decided to chop alot of that message out
What I said was £55 was worthwhile for thrashing a load of GTIs and Fiestas.
Used to REALLY abuse the clutch on my old AF1. Run along in top gear slipping the clutch with a pillion to keep it in the power (otherwise you dropped it a gear and revved the engine hard, or kept in top and kept dropping out of the power). The clutch took months of 2 up abuse on the way to work doing this
All the best
