While Sinclairio is waiting for a new cylinder head i thought i would take the opportunity to mock up the Honda Sky disk brake setup that im going to fit to my tomos. Unfortunately it means i will have to loose my grimeca front wheel. But its worth it for some decent stopping power. So i mounted the wheel and looks like with very little work and a home made calliper mount i should be able to make it work.

Went out for M.A.D run 2 and bb lee my spark plug out from the head. Basically the butcher that Cookson bought it off must have cross threaded the hole. New head needed as it is cheaper than getting a heli-coil fitted!
Whilst on MAD run 2 the tomos became less and less able to shift into second gear. I bought half an A3 engine recently for the cluches. When i removed the current second gear clutch that i had resurfaced with leather it had disintegrated. I swapped out entire clutch mechanism from the spare engine but installed my stiffer clutch springs. Initial report is a much better shift but still some vibration.
