Clutch replacement RH 160: The clutch of the 145 is different from the 160.
Basically the same fitting but a larger diameter.
The one to fit is the Exedy HNK-6750 clutch kit. You will find that the throw out bearing won't fit. In my case they machined the cradle otherwise get one that fit.  Retail price $1050  in 2015

I had my front shock absorbers reconditioned here in 2019 for $550. I found out later the front ones are available new. Your best option is to contact Powerdown. They were very professional when I delt with them.

Rear shock absorbers is a different story. After a lot of emails WW Shockabsorbers is your only option in Australia. As far as I found out they buy a new shockabsorber Sachs made in Germany and modify the fittings to suit the RH160. I paid $750 in 2020. You get new top rubbers. All they use from your old one is the bottom ring.

When I got the front fitted I did not notice any difference. For the rear I drove from Townsville to brisbane with no shock absorbers and I had a good ride . After the new rear ones were fitted it defenitely stiffened up the ride. Sharp bumps actially uncomfortable. But now I have done a few KMs on wobbely road the drive is good.
