2023 season ending clutch loss
riding season in Wisconsin officially over for me. started with noticing a couple times of bike wanting to roll while clutch was pulled fully over the past few months. clutch wire tension was loose, any looser and the had to pull half clutch lever before it would be tight enough to pull the clutch at all. Today, couple times while “getting after it” it slipped at about 4500 in 3rd and again at about 4500 in 4th. another hour later it started skipping every 15min? just disengage half second to rev up, then catch again. eventually lost it all. Had to just keep shifting back and forth and bounce throttle a bit until it would catch. rolled through a lot of intersections and corners trying to not shift or pull in the clutch, but limped home for the 40 miles with it only dropping out completely about 3 times. Looks like I have a new project for the winter. 😞
