After my clutch replacement - October 10, 2010, 04:18 PM

I had my clutch rebuilt and now I'm having issues. When the bike is at a stand still, after I've engaged the clutch, when attempting to roll the bike it's as though I haven't fully engaged the clutch. I have to rock the bike a little to get it to roll. After the bike heats up I don't have the problem.

What should I do?

were the fibers new? If so, did you soak them in oil before installing them?

+1. You need to soak the cork plates before installation. Also, did you get new springs with the new cork? Also, Barnett is pretty well known for being shitty plates. Did you get OEM or aftermarket?

+1 I was going to guess he had a gixxer before he posted that he had one. My buddy Drew had the same problem with Barnett.

I just put a new clutch set in my SV1000. Everything is working well, but the clutch still has a very high friction point. It starts releasing almost as soon as I pull in the handle. Is there any way this can be adjusted. Since it is a hydraulic clutch, I did bleed the line after the installation, so I know air in the line is not a problem.

Thanks

With the Hydro clutches, there is not much you can do to mess with the friction point. Actually, not in the cables either, it's kind of an illusion. All you're doing is messing with the slack. Your lever should have a circle adjusment on it, however and that will allow you to adjust the distance from the lever to the handlegrip. Other than that, having the friction point so far out, is a good thing. The further out it is,the less you have to pull in, thus saving arm pump, fatigue and two-finger shifting which of course makes you feel and look like pro. If you get the piazzo levers (about $120 for the pair, I think) they will be more adjustable and with the super-light weight aluminum they use, it usually adds 20 horsepower, 70 mph and shaves 10 seconds off your lap time. Of course the 10 seconds of lap time is only based off figures run at Summit Point with a SuperChicken. Your individual results may vary.

If you put a little bit smaller clutch master cylinder on, then you would have to pull the lever in more to actuate the slave cylinder. True story.
