    Pulling Away


    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?

    Cheers,

    James.

    Clutch


    >>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

    Sorry


    Hi

    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

    Keith
