blown clutch!!!

So I have about 30 hours total, I ride trails and 14 tooth.. need to clutch a lot in order not to stall..

That said, the clutch is now slipping. I tried adjusting the lever a bit and no luck. Can you believe this at all? I was told it is not covered under warranty but I seriously think this is bs... 30 hours should not be enough to wear a clutch out.

The tech said sometimes when a new clutch goes through excessive wear a "glaze" is formed.. something about not soaking up enough oil.. but my bike has been sitting for 5 months. Maybe it is ride time to heat up and soak in oil.

Also, one thing I can also do is switch gears without engaging the clutch. I never do this but still was very easy.

Am I driving this thing wrong or something? I really dont drive hard.. I have been in a lot of mud and engaged the clutch a lot, but no more than my last bike.


So, If I do need to replace the clutch and its not warrantied, what should I replace with so this NEVER happens again in 30 hours of use.

Also the tech said 5 hour job plus parts!!! way to expensive.. .I will have to dig in myself.

Help!

You can buy a Matlock Racing clutch kit, we have been racing it for the last 5 races and we just did a 1000 mile 3 day rally race and had no problems at all. The stock clutch with our 64 HP motor would not last 200 miles. PM me and I will get you the price, it comes with plates, fibers, springs and oil recommendation.

As far as time goes it should take you less than an hour to put it in. We can change a clutch out at a race in less than five minutes.

I only use the clutch to set off and change down gears. Never to change up.

so is it as easy as popping off the cover and replacing the plates?


Also, if anyone has the pdf of a shop manual that would be great. PM me if you have any info.

So here is something I found on youtube for clutch replacement. How the heck does the dealer say 5 hours? Absolute BS!



I am no rocket scientist, but I would think this is a 45 min job with the correct tools.

It's even easier and quicker than that.......tip the quad on its side and you dont even have to drop the oil.

what about any residual "blown" pieces? It is a brilliant idea.
