I am thinking that is another quality Chinese supplier.
Murphy,s other law
Bad always replaces good
Maybe the 2014 "Beeeks" will get you even more business
They are a very, very Japanese manufacturer. Make clutches for all the big four brands of bike in Hamamatsu-shi Japan. Also have factories in USA, China, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan and India but these will manufacture for each home market.
I think the problem is they never get to hear from the end user whats wrong with their product. Too many layers of non technical and potential filters as you go back from us to the guy responsible at the production facility.
"Our severe quality and cost management are applied not only to the development stage but to all stages of product manufacturing, including prototyping, testing, and mass production. In addition, we constantly seek ways to increase efficiency and improve the current production system"
In other words they design and build things as cheap as they can. If only they would seek to ask us how they could improve.
And perhaps this explains why everything is made with such a loose fit.
"Automatic ring-gear assembly process for motorcycle clutches"
Thats automated assembly of the entire clutch basket to you and me. No human being sees how slack they are once they have been put together.
Don't take this the wrong way but I never set out looking for business. I simply started re-building DL and SV baskets to save owners buying replacements that were not up to the job. And they are still not up to the job.
