Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 2015 Crf250l and after doing a muddy ride yesterday and comming back home the bike can move but if I give too mutch gas the bike wont accelerate i am not certain what it is and I do not hear any noise from the engine or any smell. I am wondering if anyone has an idea of what it could be?

You can try adjusting it but, This bike uses a judder system in the clutch that lets it slip by design ...  :facepalm:    and makes it a weak link. I removed mine and now my clutch is simply awesome and super grippy like it should be ...  :ride:  

 

Me and many others have upgraded our clutch and springs ........ read all of this thread and ask any more questions you need answers to ...  :thumbsup:

Maybe there is mud around the clutch linkage preventing it from returning all the way?

Thanks I will clean the bike more thoroughly tonight and see if it will fix it.

Just take a quick look.   Operate the clutch and see where it moves by the engine.  If there is some crap in there it is probably not returning.

Thanks I will read up on it and possibly upgrade the clutch and springs

 

the parts are not expensive. The parts and links are all in that thread and just based on your location you would greatly benefit from the upgrade. In my particular case I always felt the the clutch was slightly slipping and I have done lots of mods to improve power and wheelie capabilities .... it was the new clutch that was able to produce 3rd gear wheelies not just the added power.

It truly is ...  :thumbsup:   

 

Race Tech suspension and upgraded clutch with the right tires and gearing for your needs will completely transform this bike into a very capable off road machine ...  :ride:   That is all this bike really needs but, then of course why stop there ....  :lol:

I checked the cable near the engine and it moves freely I will probably need to replace it.

My old parts .... 

 

The 3 pieces on the left is the judder stuff that needs be be removed and replaced with just one regular friction plate ... you can just imagine how weak that is compared to a clutch without it ..  :banghead:    I also believe that the stiffer springs really is key to the upgrade.

Removing the judder spring and the plate changes the shifter feel noticeably, the stiffer mainly springs increase it holding power.  Both are key elements in achieving the heavier duty clutch and the feel/clutch that the bike lacks.  Stock the bikes clutch is set up for beginners and smooth street use.  The upgraded clutch will work like and feel a true dirt clutch should.

I wonder how many other "Dual Sports" are lacking or would greatly benefit from a clutch upgrade ....  :thinking:   seems to me it is an often overlooked vital area for overall improvements ....

Basically they all could.  If the clutch lacks a judder plate the heavier springs will still improve the "grab" some and definitely increase their holding power.
