On the Clutch plate itself it has 4 springs, 2 of which are loose! quite a worry as the car has only done 2,00 miles, anyhoo the dealer has now ordered another clutch (disc and plate) and will inspect once arrives with them(hopefully 21/4/08 if not before), once the inspection has been carried out by the RTE and he is happy to say that is ok, the task of reassembly and get the pocket rocket back on its rightful place, on the road giving me and my partner some good times on our travels

Thanks for keeping us updated Twigojsh.

Hopefully this will resolve the issue.
