scratched clutch hub? pics

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i took some pics of my clutch so i can get a better look at it and noticed the inner hub was all scratched up and banged up. what would cause this and is this normal or does it need replaced? The first pic you can see the scratches. The second pic looks like there is a chunk missing out of the corner and the third looks like it is all scraped up in one spot. thanks

Your basket looks like it has some odd wear... Ive seen much worse though. As asked above, what is the condition of your steels and fibers?

They look ok. I think I am gonna replace them though. I put one on some glass and it was not warped and the fibers I measured and were ok. Yeah the basket has some faint grooves but more on the inner part towards the middle part of the bike then on te outer part. Do you think I need to replace anything or is this all ok?

Sadly I have a feeling that your hub could start giving you issues in the near future. I would start looking for a replacement. As for your basket you could use the band aid fix for the time being and file the grooves down but Id start looking for a replacement for that as well.

I cant think of anything that would cause that kind of wear other than the roller bearing being shot... No use in dumping money into it until you figure out why its wearing like that. There has to be a reason behind it.

Cant rem the year of your bike so this is just a ref, but your clutch will be exactly the same.

The bearing I am referring to is # 13 in the diagram. Id look for wear on the spacer as well while your in there, part #12. Those parts would be the first things Id check based on the wear patterns your hub displays.

Did you notice any abnormal vibrations or noises comming from the clutch before you pulled it apart?

Those marks on the outer portion of the inner hub (man, is that ever a description!) dont look right. I would find out what made those before starting the bike again.

Really, it looks like it was from a piece of floating metal.

No no noises or anything. Only thing I noticed different was the bike has become harder to start in gear with the clutch pulled in. When I go to kick it it wants to roll forward. I got lucky and found a used basket so hopefully it's in good shape.

Sounds like your clutch was worn, it was def slipping... Whether it was the clutch pack or the hub or basket is hard to tell from pictures. Id do exactly what your doing and start replacing things part by part and see what fixes your problem. Thing is that once you get your problem fixed Id continue replacing the parts of the clutch until they are all replaced to prevent chewing up another hub and basket.

Ive had several bikes that refused to start in gear when I got them and started replacing parts until I found the issue. Usually its the clutch pack itself being worn past tolerances, but there are those times that have extremely notched/ worn baskets and hubs that do the same.

I have a very nice near new clutch hub and pressure plate from my '06 125

I don't see myself putting them back in as I went to GYT-R billet stuff a few years back.

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.

      I’ve got this 85 yz 250 with a odd rev problem, it starts and runs fine, good compression but when you Give it wide open throttle in newtral the bike will rev to around 5.5 k rpm like platow for a bit there, once you’ve waited  a few seconds there for it to clear itself out until it reaches its max rev whatever it might be 7k rpm even happeneds when the bike is defenetly warmed up after a wide open pull. But it doesn’t bog at idle to 3k. The trotte response when riding seens normal. However i don’t feel that the motor is getting its full potential. Honestly I’m just confused on what’s goin on and i need some help
