FAQs


Q. What type of lubrication should I use in my clutch?
A. Use only good quality oils and lubricants.

Q. What is the purpose of the oil in a 'WET' clutch?
A. The primary purpose of the oil in a wet clutch is to act as a coolant. The oil flows around the clutch plates and friction plates, cooling them. This results in smoother clutch action and prolongs clutch life. Be sure to use motorcycle specific oil, which has absolutely no friction modifiers, is fully compatible with all wet clutches, and meets/exceeds all JASO motorcycle wet clutch specs. Do not use automotive type oils in a wet clutch because they have friction modifiers, which depending on the specific oil and friction modifiers, can cause clutch plates to slip and run hotter which allows for glazing and heat related issues to occur.

Q. What causes my clutch to stick or drag?
A. There is no single cause of a sticking clutch. Some more common reasons for a sticking clutch are :
  • Clutch controls are improperly adjusted. Clutch cable is collapsing.
  • Clutch spring tension is too tight, spring binding.
  • Too heavy an oil has been used in the clutch. Thick viscosity oil can cause the plates to stick, especially when cold, or a driving style that slips the clutch. Changing the oil in a clutch often improves the situation.
  • Clutch plates are warped. Friction plates or metal plates may be warped.
  • Improper adjustment on primary drive chain/belt.

Q. What causes my clutch to slip?
A. Some of the more common reasons for clutch slippage are :
  • Clutch controls are improperly adjusted. Improper cable adjustment.
  • Insufficient clutch spring tension. This can be due to excessive wear or in a highly modified engine, too much power.
  • Worn or warped friction plates or steel plates.

Q. What causes my clutch to chatter?
A. Some of the more common reasons for clutch chattering are :
  • Clutch controls are improperly adjusted. Frayed or stretched clutch cable.
  • Burnt or glazed friction plates.
  • Worn or warped friction plates.
  • Diaphragm clutch spring does not have enough tension. Too flat or worn out.
  • Clutch hub liner friction plate rivets loose or broken.

Q. Why is it hard to shift my transmission?
A. Some of the more common reasons for a hard shifting transmission are :
  • Clutch controls are improperly adjusted. Cable adjustment is improper or worn cable.
  • Improper adjustment on drive train chain or belts
  • Clutch has too much drag
  • Improper oil in primary chaincase for wet clutch
