I just starting puting my new 600N "3G flybarless" together.

And the gap between the clutch and the liner is huge!!!!!

I'm definitly going to rip it out and reinstall.

Has anyone else had this issue?

And....

Is anyone using a liner other than the align. I replaced the liner on my other 600N, a couple of weeks ago and the liner seemed about .5mm to small for the clutch bell. I had to really work it to get the gap correct.

WOW...Align STILL hasn't got this fixed in their kits?

On my 600s I replaced the stock liner with TT Raptor 90 liner.

1. Remove the stock liner and adhesive (I chucked the bell / pinion in a drill and used an Xacto to 'machine' the inside of the bell).

2. Trim the R90 liner to length then JB weld it in place.

3. Wrap two layers of electrical tape around the clutch shoe, trim the tape flush with the top of the shoe, and shove it into the clutch bell.

4. After the JB weld cures yank out the clutch shoe, trim excess liner material, and reassemble.

The tape provides the correct gap...a tiny bit 'grabby' at first but your stock clutch will last a LONG time.

^^^ exactly - I've seen this too. Clutch won't last long with that gap. R90 blue liner works great.

Thanks for all of the responses.

I'll use the 700 linear easier to find.
