Clutch plates replacing
« on: October 17, 2019, 04:52:39 AM »

Has anyone replaced their clutch plates? why (wear, trouble, faulty, slipping)?

Big difference once replaced?

What about springs? What about the metal plates?

Overall my shifting has no trouble... but I have a feeling that, after a rather "tight" clutch cable adjustment (far to tight, caused clutch to slip over 7k rpm), I might of "polished" somewhat my clutch plates. At high rpm I dont get as much power (and dont go as fast) as I used to.

Not sure if that is the problem (lower revs, pulling out in 1st no problem).

Any tips/info most welcome!

edit: BTW... what plates would you recomend? OEM? EBC? Lopor? Gecko? Any others?

I was worried about the clutch, because it seems to need adjusting every 3,000 miles.

But I stripped it down at 30,000 miles and couldn't find any wear at all, so put the original plates back in.
I did change the springs, but can't say the difference was really noticeable.
