    Front wheel spindle

    You can check parts lists on line to see if different.. i recall the showa set up had a spacer on the disc side which is not needed on the tech forks as the bottom boss is wider . Would maybe suggest thread is a different length??

    Youth Championship 2019

    Who's Job is it? This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done. Who wants Change? Once there were four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, Nobody who wanted change. So, Everybody said "I want change". Somebody said "If only Anybody, would start to change, I will join." But Nobody said "I will change." Finally Everybody stayed same, blaming Somebody for waiting for Anybody to start changing. So, Nobody changed. At least the likes of Mick/ Hillary and the ACU are trying/have tried to do something -even if Everybody thinks they can do a better job

    TLR200 running right?

    check chain tensions and also the rear cush drive pins in the rear hub -they can become worn and and give play - also swing arm bearings if worn can give play .

    Any way of reducing the spring of the clutch?

    The Mont clutch is not I believe known for being heavy - but it does take a little bit of getting used to action wise -I think as much the torque of the engine etc. I find setting very steady revs and keeping it constant and then use the clutch -not possibly the 2 stroke blipping throttle and using clutch together - if that makes sense. As you say the bike is new to you then would be worth having a few more hours on it before whipping out the spanners but if still not to your liking then tweaking the spring would be an option - either take a couple out as you suggest or possible grind shorter or look to put a spacer in to make free length longer but check clearances etc. On the early 2005 bikes the master cyl swap for a 315 was the way to go - different diameters of piston I believe - this has not been necessary since the 2006 bikes and even the switch to the Braktec ones has not been detrimental but you may gain by a different ratio that would ease the pressure. As with all mods there are drawbacks - less spring pressure can induce slip - if riding easy /sensible stuff not an issue but if doing big stuiff /big climbs/ road or moor work then maybe an issue in 5th gear . Likewise altering ration of master cyl bore to salve cyl bore ratio may give excess travel. Bit of a suck it and see unfortunately.
