Burnt Clutch??

Hello all......after riding through some pretty rough terrain (rocks, deep streams, etc) the other day, I ended up getting stuck in some pretty sticky mud and got a little rough with my 700xx.....and the clutch in order to get out. Ever since my clutch isn't the same. I need to release the clutch damn near all the way out before the quad begins to move, whereas before it moved almost immediately as the clutch was let out. Also, When I get on the gas hard, the quad winds up high, then begins to accelerate. Did I burn up the clutch partly? What needs to be done? If the clutch is the problem, is it just the fibers that would have gone bad????

First make sure there is some freeplay in the cable. If theres freeplay in the cable and it still slips the fibers are shot. You can order just new stock fibers and scuff up the steels or you can order a performance clutch kit which gives you new fibers, steels and springs. For the type of riding your doing I would switch to a 13 tooth sprocket your clutch will last longer

Another thing to try before you replace the clutch is try to change out the oil, mine was slipping a little bit on my old KTM, and I changed the oil it it got a lot better.

Ok thanks guys...there is a lot of "free-play" in the clutch. So, if a clutch burns up, it's just the fibers that go? How difficult are the fibers to replace? (i'm fairly mechanically inclined but never dealt with a clutch) Any chance of warranty taking care of this?

Warranty does not cover this, had the same issue but once I change my oil and adjusted my freeplay, the clutch works like a charm

Do a search for "manual" and you can download it from that post then if need be, you can replace the clutch from what I read, it's pretty simple. If you do replace the clutch, don't forget to let your fiber plates soak in oil for at least 4 hours. Mine stated 8 hours but did not need to replace it.

I have a set of stock clutches with hardly any use if interested

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
