Fantic Fun

After my first ride on the Fantic it was clear that the clutch was a bit heavy. The easiest way to lighten it is to bolt a 428 chain side plate to the clutch arm and another to the cable lug. 
Modified clutch was tried out at Nettleton yesterday and what a difference. Made the bike so much more rideable. Still struggling to find the rear brake pedal tho.
I am truly amazed how good a Fantic 200 is. It handles well, turns well and a great engine with loads of power. You wouldn't think it was just 156cc. All of this plus amazing grip even with original suspension and a shagged rear tyre gives me confidence to try stuff I would never have done on the Bultacos. Brilliant.
