Sleeping beauty says, "Stop pounding so hard!!"

So I am getting used to riding this amazing bike. I've given up on looking for a 1500 or 1800 for that matter. It was like another full time job, so I'm going to get to know this one a little better. I guess i have been pushing too hard on the clutch pedal which caused chattering. Just today I realized that I can barley tap my heel on it and it shifts fine, very easy and no chattering , except for a little in 2nd or maybe its 3rd.
Now, if i can just get some stainless lines on this clutch (since the lever goes spongy after the bike warms up), we might be good to go on a long trip this summer :P OOps, almost forgot, i still need to change the timing belts , geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeshhhhhhhhhh :roll:

I had this problem on my old Datsun 210 then I got a motorcycle and didn't have that problem anymore :P
