Talking

It won't be long and you'll be wanting a stronger clutch setup. The stock clutch carrier and pinion bolt are notorious for failing. When those fail, they can take other parts with them.

Just something to consider.

Tbredon is absolutely right!I've fixed mine 4 times and although it's not a hard fix it's very annoying when it breaks and breaks often.
