hinson clutch baskets..?


Recommended Posts

i bought my bike used and supposedly it has a hinson clutch basket. when i put it into gear and take off and go to pull in the clutch again it doesnt fully engage. unless i come to a complete stop, is this a characteristic of hinson clutchs or are my plates slipping or do i need a new basket?

disengage? sounds like your basket is grooved

yeah when i pull in the clutch it acts like nothing happpened it still goes but when i grab the throttle it pulls a little bit but not much at all. but like when ii first put it into gear its fine just after i takee off. what does that mean if it's grooved? do i need a new basket? will i be safe to race sunday?

Yeah you should be fine. They are usually very risilent to breaking, its just that the problem MAY get worse. After the race I would tak and give the clutch side a good wash/rinse, and take that boy apart, you will know if it grooved right then and there.
