Hey wonderful thread, what cables you are using for clutch, I used to use a cable which used to come with plastic (inner walled) outer,which used to give smooth clutch operation. FE can still go up if you down size the secondary jet. Regarding tires continental had tied up with Modi ties, used to bring out Modi-continental,these tires used to prevent side ways swaying upon hard breaking. Your thread made me remember my Chetak, I have done 200-300 Kms long drives, with breaks after every 60-90 minutes. for want of space we had to give it up, otherwise never wanted sell it.
