Sorry to hear of your mechanical woes. I agree with yzf. For what you've probably paid to have the two bikes fixed, you could have set the bikes up initially with Hinson baskets, inner hubs and pressure plates. If they break those parts, then I'd start looking at their riding style. For info on the hinson stuff, go to
hope this helps. If you call them, they are very helpful in answering questions and can answer many more questions about the clutch than most of us.
