Clutch went bang in kit car, RAC rescued from A38.  Sad

Jumped on the Frog to get some fluids, and there was a small crack! and now the clutch is dragging something awful. Angry

Is it me? or national no clutch day or something?

Jeez!
I'd be setting fire to them both by now!
The Frog -the worm drive that pushes the pushrod, that operates the clutch, is plastic. Broken? (it's inside the lefthand engine casing, which will probably mean removing the exhaust to get the casing off!)

well the kit car is an easy sort out, new slave cylinder required.
The frog is a mystery, cannot see anything broken, but it will not slip.

its just the frog Andy, refusing to play nice. Good news seems to be, its finally oil tight. Oh, and it slipped ove the other day, no damage to the bike, but it hurt my hip trying to save it, now can hardly cock my leg  Shocked
