Hmm...I'd be willing to bet that was less of an issue on hardpack with the stock tires.

The xx clutch really isn't a weak link, any clutch failure is almost gauranteed to be improper adjustment or to much HP
i hope to find out. I'm bone stock so HP shouldn't be the issue. This is where we get into not Honda's treatment but how yiour local Dealer makes the experience. fingers are crossed, i don't get service done there, only buy as they have better prices than in town. i hope their service department is worth a darn.

With such a new machine, it may have been a setup issue from the dealer. Typical Honda fit and finish is outstanding. Dealer preparation on the other hand often leaves something to be desired (the sixteen year old in the back).

Experience has taught me that a complete inspection of the machine after taking it home has saved me countless problems. We should start a thread that contains a checklist of things to inspect when the new hotness arrives home. A few things come to mind:

1. Check all fluid levels as per the manual (oil, coolant, brakes)
2. Check all cables for proper tension and adjustment
3. Check that all shipping shims, bolts, tags, ect... have been removed
4. Check torque values for wheels, shaft bolts, shock bolts, ect...
5. Lubricate the chain and cables
6. Check that the air filter has been properly oiled

After first run:

1. Change the oil and check all other fluids
2. Clean and inspect the entire machine
3. Check torque values again
4. Clean the air filter and re-oil

More long term items should also be checked. I have found on a number of occasions that the factory often uses minimal grease on the majority of the moving parts. One thing I typically do is pull most of the suspension and re-grease everything after the first 25 to 50 hours. I know it is a pain, but it saved the wife’s DR350 from a set of dry bearings from the factory.

What would be less of an issue?

Drivetrain impact via torque as the stock tires don't hook up for squat.

It also depends on the driver.

I'm not sure if we were agreeing or agreeing to disagree lol, I was stating that any tire hooking up puts more effort on the clutch than a tire spinning. The exception might be a large lug mud tire that would collect and sling mud. It takes allot less torque to spin a tire compared to a tire that is hooked up trying to accelerate 500lb forward

No worries. So far on exriders people voted 10-0 that mud is harder on clutches than hard pack.
