pissed Brand New On Wed, 1 Hour Sat & Wont Move Help

Hi all im new and for the hour i rode my xx on some rutted muddy trails at Carolina Adventureworld in SC, i can say it was as a dream to trail ride compared to my former 700 raptor..Until.

I was in some mud, put it in reverse to turn around went about 5 feet then nothing. engine reved but wheels didn't move, 1st gear same,.. cluth felt the same, you could even feel it go into gear, up and down, but no chain movement.

What happened. Ran great up till then, no problems, clutch strong in fact ingaged so fast that i would stall it from time to time if i didn't give it a little gas.


Sorry so wordy i just wanted to give as many details as possible.
Help

-newly proud owner but down and out

Sounds like your clutch is out of adjustment. I'm sure the warranty will cover the problem> keep us posted

I would check for freeplay in the clutch lever. The lever should not be tight against the perch when the clutch is released, there should be some freepaly or the cluch will not fully engage and could eventually burn up.

sorry to hear that, I agree the clutch is way too tight. You may have burned it up. Warranty will probably cover it but if not call Hinson Clutch Components. They make a clutch kit with heavy springs that is top notch. I had to get one in a hurry after my engine came back from EHS. She was putting out so much horse power and torque that the stock clutch was slipping! The cost is less than the factor will charge you for a stock clutch.

thanks for advice thus far

as for freeplay, my clutch did sit all the way aganst the stop with no freeplay when enganged, also, it seemed to engage very quickly as soon as i let it out from the grip. i made no adjustments from what the dealer gave me as i don't know how to do that. Im surprised its a weak point because i've heard this is the same clutch aas the cr500. I'll let you u guys know, if they say clutch is fried, im going to push they replace this one because it could have only been because they had it out of adjustment. it was a muddy day an alot of tire spin, which is easer on clutches than hardpack. still, i'll be looking to upgrade if this is what i can expect from a honda clutch. what a shame.

Yeah the mud would have made the clutch slip more and make it harder for you to determine weather it was the clutch or the tires spinning.


If anything I would think that mud would be harder on clutches than hard pack which I would think would make it roll easier.

But hey, I've been wrong before. Sorry to hear about your problem.

Any time the tires are spinning it will be easier on the clutch. When on hard pack and the tires are gripping there is more strain due to torque transfer

The xx clutch really isn't a weak link, any clutch failure is almost gauranteed to be improper adjustment or to much HP
