Hi Guys, great that there is a forum like this in NZ. Im based in Nelson and I have an old 78 Ironhead which I am grappling with... i'm new to motorbike mechanics and seems its a steep learning curve with this old girl...always having to fix something. Parts are hard to come by here in NZ and often I have to get stuff from the states so makes it all rather slow going. Thought joining this site might get me in contact with people in the know. Cheers, Johnny.

Hey thanks guys, will definitely look them up. Need a set of friction plates and steels for the clutch. Hope they stock 'made in USA' brands! Alto or Barnetts.

Have been told that kevlar plates aren't necessary in an old ironhead and that kevlar works better in a dry clutch?? Seems to be plenty of guys using kevlar plates in the States in Ironheads according to the forums there. Guess it will come down to cost at the end of the day.

Cheers.
