Ok ive noticed somthing going on with my bike and i need your help. i am noticing the problem when im rev matching/ blipping the throttle downshifting prior to turns and coming to a stop.


When i hold the clutch lever all the way in and blip the throttle i can hear and feel what seems to be the clutch still being partially engaged. its not engaged to the point where the bike is lurching forward, rather it is suttle enough to make me notice it.

I do have the required amount of clutch lever play. i can fit a nickel into the gap between the lever and the clip on.

I do have castrol syntec 10w-40 oil in the bike.


Its still cold as a mofo here in PA and i still cant ride because of it. im now in the process of getting it ready for the summer :)


Has anyone experienced this before? or can help me troubleshoot??
THanks

I ask that cause I can't hold the brake steady while blipping the th. Nothing that is going to make me crash but I still am not smooth. As far as the clutch goes... if it's not grabbing a little while at a stop light... then it is just fine. My only guess if it really is the clutch is that you're not pulling it in far enough. just adjust a little play out of the lever and try to pull it in further. That's my only guess.

someone once told me that if your always reving when you pull in the clutch, as if you were keeping it from stalling, it wears out your clutch a lot faster. i try not to do it since the advise was given, but this could be the cause of your problem. its funny how just about everyone makes it a habbit, expecially harley dudes

you might be able to convince me that is will speed up the wear but certainly not a noticable amount. The only friction between the clutch discs and plates when the clutch is squeezed is caused by the oil. I'd guess one start from a stop light will put more wear on the clutch than a lifetime of revving the motor with the clutch in. .

i guess if the clutch is pulled in all the way then it shouldnt hurt it. that ends my hesitation of reving at the hot babes on the street:five:
