Grabby clutch issues on XR650R

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 XR650R that overtime has developed a grabby clutch, ie all the engagement is in the final release of the clutch lever.

 

I assumed the cltuch discs were worn so I bought the EBC clutch kit.  Now that I have everything apart the old discs do not seem to be worn that much.  The b plates measure around 0.125" (limit is 0.106").  The new discs are 0.129".  Any advice on what to do?

 Have you replaced the clutch basket bushng yet?

 

Thx for the tip.

 

Actually- I don't know if the bushing was upgraded.  I bought the bike used 2007.  Does the clutch basket have to come off to view the bushing?

Thanks for all the replies.  The clutch basket fingers did not appear to have notching.  Visually you could see where it is starting to notch, but it;s only a few thou dep at the moment.

 

I put everything back together and the clutch works much better than before; I'm assuming one of the plates was warped.
