It don’t have to be stainless steel just steel ,

Hmm I’m trying to think what I used on my VA’s bike clutch was back in the day,

Is this the same stuff you used to find on keychains? Hollow steel balls dont' sound very durable? Will this mod last or be expelled from my clutch in tiny shards?

It doesn't need anything inside the spring. I have ran many like that with just the spring.

Re: 14" ball chain?

For how long? Did you put a lot of miles on it like that?

1/4" ball chain btw!

Re: 14" ball chain?

Hey Roff, is that a good clutch/magneto cover? Is it available?

Re: 14" ball chain?

i've done it with the fuel line segments in between the balls, that works pretty good.

i never thought to try what nate is saying but thats a pretty good idea

Re: 14" ball chain?

I have only done it on non stock bikes, like ported with a pipe or kitted. It has lasted reasonably long, the first bike I did it to was in 2008. Just try it and see. You can always put it back if it doesn't work for you.

Re: 14" ball chain?

The Bat I have had no balls in the clutch. Pipe and kit on it, and it ripped, but the clutch was worn down to the point that new clutch plates did nothing and it would always be engaged.

It's in the same drawer as your wallet chain and jnco jeans.

I was running a mix of the og balls and some links of chain
