Bantam / Re: D14 flywheel plates

I too noticed no difference in power when I ran a crankshaft without stuffer plates.
I have just changed my conrod to the Rex Caunt one as well.
I didn't rebalance the crankshaft, just set up my shafts for .002" runout.
I haven't noticed any new vibrations at a different rev range (yet)

Twins / Re: A65 Rocket gearbox

It could be the shimming on the gearbox shafts.
Each cog needs to be in its correct place, with the correct clearance to the other cogs.

Booking forms should be available for the 2022 Belgium rally from mid December.

Twins / Re: Rear a65 brake adjustment

make sure that the pivot plate on the inside of the frame has not worn its holes oval.
Also, check that the rod to the rear brake is not hitting the inside of the rear shock absorber then the brake is being applied.

Remove the foot brake lever, push the brake lever on the brake drum forward, and then re-slide the brake leaver back on, this can take up all the slack of movement.
Also, check the position of the linkage on the inside of the frame, as it needs to have enough angle to allow it to move
