New guy needs a clutch bike GURU!

Hi, I am Jack Phillips, I live in Central Fl. near the Space Center, and am brand new as a Boss Hoss owner. I purchased a 97 "clutch" bike that was "reborn" @ MBHC in Jan 04. It has the MBHC Frame Loop Mod, allowing the newest Gates belt, with a 38T front, and 80T rear sproket, and 03 swingarm and inverted 03 forks with 4 degrees extra rake. My first problem, MBHC can only get me an 03 or 04 manual (already ordered) and I already need some clutch adjustment (recent clutch and pressure plate) and don't know which "geframjit" to twist where without a manual or clutch bike Guru. Even though I am deep into the bi-focal age, I usually follow instructions rather well. Might anyone out there have a clutch bike book I could pay to get a copy of?

If someone could send me their number, I will call on my nickle for adivce. Thank you, I'm sure I will have lots of other questions, but am damned proud of the Hoss. What an absolute RUSH!

Congrats on the new bike! Your going to love it. Sorry but I can't help you on the clutch adjustment but you can bet there are guys here that can. Seeing you already did a lot of upgrades you might want to look for a auto trans while your at it. I have a buddy that just went from a clutch to a single speed auto and he just loves it.

By the way I bought a 99 and did the same thing as far a upgrades. At the time it was cheaper than a new bike I thought but I'm right at what a good late model used one would have cost me but I did have a lot of fun getting to know my bike. :D
Clutch Info

Congrats on the new Hoss and welcome aboard. I have a 96' clutch bike that I recently converted to a single speed automatic. I have had alot of clutch experience with the Boss Hoss. I don't know if I am a "guru" but I do have lots of info for you. I also have the right manual for that bike. I could copy it and send it to you. I will send you an e-mail with my phone number.


Welcome to the group......you're gonna love it :lol: More fun than 100 virgins :eek: And you don't have to blow yourself up to get it :lol:

Hey Jack,

Welcome and Congrats. I own a 98 clutch Boss. I got my manual directly from the factory. Give them a call and they will get one in the mail to you for about $20.

It may have been ten bucks, but I am leaning towards twenty.

Put up a picture of your new ride when you get the hang of it and the time.

If you want to talk clutches, I can be reached at:
