After my clutch replacement PART 2 - December 21, 2010, 12:35 PM

I had my clutch replaced 2k ago.

Back story: Nearly 30k with the same clutch, never had a problem, decided to douche it up and burned out my clutch in all of two minutes.

Replaced clutch, clutch works fine. Now, no matter how I ride, I still smell the smell of burning clutch every time I get off the bike. Why?

Changed oil directly following replacement (as instructed). I'm actually around 1650miles, an oil change couldn't hurt but would that be a solution?

Did you soak the clutch plates in oil before installing? Or did you install them dry?

Installation was done by a Suzuki dealer.

I would try that first especially if you smell it as soon as the bike is started and warming up. If you have ever smelled oil after it has went through a clutch failure it's hands down the worst smell ever. The problem is when you change the oil in your bike you are not able to get it all due to the pockets and other areas in the engine. That's why the refill amount is usually 300cc-750cc different when a tear down is performed. I'm not saying that's your problem but it's where I would start.
