clutch slipping? - June 3, 2009, 07:00 PM

alright so i just changed my levers today (stock to crg). on the way back from ram cycles i opened it up in first and noticed that it seemed that my clutch was slipping. as soon as the rpm's got to about 6-7k they would jump up to 8-9 almost instantly and then fall back down.
would this be something that may have resulted from me doing something to the clutch cable tension? never happened before tonight?
confused

There should be some slack before the clutch starts to disengage when you pull in the lever. If there's no slack, then yes you might have the cable too tight.

Give it some more slack and see if it helps, otherwise you probably have a burned up clutch.

if it happened right after getting new levers its definitely the cable adjustment, fix it quick though before you do burn your clutch plates up

yeh i took my bike about 10 miles to ram cycles for their event and didnt notice anything..though i didnt open it up on my way there at all, bu after leaving i noticed the slipping...i tried to turn the cable adjuster while riding but wasnt sure how much that helped since god started pissing all over me on the way home and i didnt have too much of a chance to test it out

replacing a clutch isn't to bad, once you do actually figure out that that is your problem, I've done it on my R6, one of the plates, broke, read up and see the pictures from my thread

CLUTCH question??

Just look at the 4th and 6th page, and you'll see what happened to mine, Good Luck

Sounds like its the cable, maybe it's just getting bound up on something....
