XR650l clutch stuttering?

Recommended Posts

When riding off road on terrain that lets the rear wheel lose and gain traction there is a mechanical stuttering or jerking in the motor. I think it is the clutch basket cush drive. It bugs me when riding rough off road aggressively. i am on my third 650l and they all have done it. Am I correct about the cush drive and is there anything that can be done to change this?

Have you checked all your motor mount bolts? They sometimes do weird things if loose.

A lot of that is the loss of traction takes pressure of the chain,,trans gears and the clutch cushion springs,,,,,

 

there is a pile of slack to take up when this happens and it hammers some..

 

And the only thing that might help is a real CUSH drive rear hub,,it absorbs that shock..

live with it..or spend money and maybe help some..

 

Sending the rear shock out for proper setup will help a lot too.....a properly setup and valved suspension keeps the wheel in contact with the dirt preventing a pile of this......talk to any suspension specialist and he will tell you that..

Looked into clutch baskets with better cush setup but no luck. Now checking into cush hubs. I know its not hurting anything but being as OCD as i am it bugs me while riding.
