Well some good news and some bad news... the good news is that I got the clutches cleaned and on the sled, the bad news is that my steering is way to sloppy, im not sure how I'm going to fix it but it seems like the engine needs to come out to replace that lower rubber bushing with whatever I'm going to. Has anybody replaced it with like a bearing? Anyways ill keep you guys updated.

Correction, it may be possible to only have to pull the engine "partially" out to access the bushing

I have updated the lower sloppy rubber grommet to the newer style aluminum block with plastic bushings.

I pulled it from an 80-82 Kawasaki.  Or, I think it's the same as the upper block & bushings. 

I recall needing to use rivet nuts in order to switch to the newer style on the 79' Invader chassis.

I actually did this on the Intimidator.  You can see it in the picture on post #26 http://kawasakitrax.com/kawiforum/index.php?topic=1809.15

Engines out currently, but I replaced the lower steering bushing as per the advice of gixxer6. Works great, thankyou.
