    3.yes
    4.not that I can tell, feels fine
    5.god i hope not!
    6.the bolts were the same size as the old ones.:shrug:
    7.maybe 150 miles.

    well, when I get into it, like getting on the freeway, the clutch slips when I get up to 3500-4000 rpm. It grabs really good off the line though, I can feel a big difference when I am pulling away from a stop. It wants to grab alot harder than my stock clutch did. I figured it would want to slip from a stop more than it would when the clutch is already out and fully engaged.:shrug:

    I guess Im not sure, how can I tell? What would cause that? The rpm jumps but the speedo doesn't.

    That sucks. I just threw mine back together for the same reason. Good days work and it's back on the road.

    Not like you need another downfall now though :(
