Well money was tight and i couldn't afford a complete oem clutch. Went with the zen-seeker listed. EBC drc87. This kit comes with all the plates steel and friction and new springs. Soaked the friction plates in oil overnight. It all went in easily apart from the spring which holds in the 1st thicker steel plate which was a bit fiddly. First impressions (well it's a clutch it either works or it doesn't) All ok. The new springs are heavier rated but i didn't notice any great difference at the lever. ( And i have bad wrists) All in all good but will see how it does long term.

Just installed one of these. Seems to work well, lever pull is not a huge difference, seems to work great. replacing the steel plate behind the wire is a bit of a bitch!!!!

Trying to get the bike bike back on the road. About 6 months ago found the clutch wouldn't free off. (put it into gear and it stalled).
Pulled the clutch out and found all the plates stuck together. Freed them off and he borrowed bike for a few months. Left the bike sitting for a few months and its happened again. Semi-synth oil in engine. Any ideas or should i try to pick up a 2nd hand clutch plate pack?
I know someone will say Just keep riding it. But winters coming soon and i dont want to to have to pull the clutch apart again.

Seems i have a more serious issue. Rebuilt the clutch but it still wont disengage. The clutch arm movement seems ok. I removed the cable and rotated the arm. it rotates through 45 degrees and i can see the pressure plate moving out. But it still wont disengage. Will check the forum to try to find a cure.

Hey walesy! How ya doin? Have you healed up okay? :crutch: Hope so.
Clutch sticking.........after sitting for a while only? :dunno: If so, maybe before starting put it in gear(engine off) clutch in and push it a foot or two til it frees itself. Then before riding away, start it in gear. I always start my bike( all bikes ) in gear after a warm up. It ( they) will go into gear without stalling anyway. Just hate clonking into gear! :crazy:

Ifffff....... your clutch sticks from day to day and all day long, gotta be looking at basket fingers grooved, hub notched, worn thrust washers........or worst case scenario bearing behind clutch basket allowing lateral movement. :OMG:

How's that FCR working out for ya? :drinks:

If it feels like the clutch is partially releasing but still 'dragging' with the lever pulled in see this thread:
