I bought my Indy with a friend last November. Very similar age to yours and spec. We are now sorting and improving it.

The clutch is awfully fierce. A Blackbird or Fireblade rear brake master cylinder as a clutch master cylinder run thro a pivot seesaw appears to be the way to go like the Westfield set up. Ours has the blkackbird cylinder just run straight off the pedal so its not geared down.

Can you tell me how yours is set up or sent me a picture?

We also have a problem in that there is a break in a rear chassis rail where the rear bottom wishbone mounts - and I mean a break! Plus related cracks elsewhere due to transmitted stress as a result. My local ex F! fabricator hs been entrusted to that repair and modification though. Previous owner had done track day at Donnington with it like that!

Thanks

Hi,

I just have a push-rod straight from the pedal with a few rose joints straight into the bike clutch master cylinder. I found that increasing the clutch spring rate gave me more feel in the clutch pedal.
