clutch slipping after rebuild

Recommended Posts

I just have the friction plates changed on my clutch, the metal plates were ok and I did not check the springs,  Now it is slipping any suggestions?

What bike?

OEM or aftermarket friction discs? They are not all created equal.

Did you soak the discs in oil over night before install?

Did you offset the last disc?

What oil are you running?

Did you readjust the clutch lever free play after install?

Did you soak the discs in oil over night before install? Nope, did pour oil over them prior to install

Did you offset the last disc? ??not sure 

What oil are you running?  Motrol Synthetic

Did you readjust the clutch lever free play after install? yep

There are a few non OEM clutch packs people thought were "decent aftermarket" but have turned out to have a bad rep for premature failure.  Tell us which, what manufacturer.

Who did the install?

I had a local shop here in Cambodia install friction plates, the fiber ones, which were honda parts.  He didn't replace the springs nor the metal plates.

Never mind. There is no offset for 250R clutches.

There is no oil called Motrol.  There is a Motul.

Could you be more specific - grade, type of oil, etc.  Motorcycle clutches are incompatible with some oil types - they slip.

There are 4 generations of XR250R bikes.  What year is yours.  And since you're in Cambodia, what exact model.

Ok so here was the problem.  The shop installed the parts that were OEM Honda, made in Thailand, good parts.  They installed them because I asked for good parts.  It I had asked for best parts they would have installed OEM Honda but made in Japan.

Check out the rear brake disc and the problem that I had with the clutch basket.  The disc has been replaced with new pads and the basket was part of the problem with the clutch originally. Min spec on that disc is 4mm and it was <1mm in the groove.

Barnett. Been using them since the early 70s.  That's all we would use on the drag bikes.
