Hi,

I've noticed over the last month or so that my clutch only bites when the lever is almost fully out. It's not slipping under hard acceleration and I've recently fitted a new slave piston oil seal and changed the fluid, but I don't think anything’s wrong with the hydraulics. I'm just wondering if most of these clutches bite never the end of the lever travel and I never really noticed before?


Cheers
Steve

It's done 38K, but I've only had it since 30K and I don't know the history before that, so I guess it could still be the original clutch. I've got a gut feel that it's just worn.

Has anbody changed the plates & springs, I was thinking of putting the upgraded springs in whilst it's stripped down?

Any special tools needed to change the plates out?

cheers guys.

certainly no harm in putting new springs in while you have her stripped.
you wont need any special tools to replace the plates, but if you need to go any deeper you will need a clutch holding tool, but i see no immediate reason why you would need to on this occassion

Just a note to say the EBC clutch plates went in fine with no problems, The lever bites nice and early now.

One thing, ignore the manual when it comes to draining the oil, just park the bike on the side-stand which forces the oil in the sump to the gear-shift side of the engine, with no loss once the clutch cover has been removed.
