Clutch and oil issues please help

Hey guys I sunk my bike a while back (over the handlebars in mud and water) and it is not the same. I have changed my oil and filter about 7 times but still is a little milky and very frothy. I thought I finally thought I got it corrected and took it out for a ride and after a couple hours my clutch started to slip real bad I can go about 10mph in 4th. I am gonna drain all the oil tomorrow and pull the clutch I am sure its gonna be shot. I used generic 10w40. I have been reading all the posts on here about clutches and oils. I am not racing just want a decent clutch and oil combo and get past this sunken nightmare...I am never going to do that again any sugestions?

If you used an oil not compatible with wet clutch then it probably would slip so you need to make sure it is when you put the new clutch in. I personally use Mobil 1 racing 4t synthetic oil that you can pick up at any auto parts store. As far as the new clutch goes I can't really say because I haven't had to change mine and have no experience with any other. Good luck with it all.

buckeyXX is right. your problem was probably the "generic" oil. Most oils are not compatible with a wet clutch. I suggest one of the following; lucas high performance atv and motorcycle, genuine honda, or rotella. I personally havent used the rotella, but I know a lot of guys that are, it is a fraction of the cost of most "good" oils and because of being high in zinc content is supposed to be very good for our engines. some of the pro builders are now recommending it. good luck

You need an oil for a wet clutch! I wouldn't ride the bike until that oil is perfect!

When you say milky and frothy I would not ride it keep flushing your system with the right oil. Unless you want to rebuild your motor.

It is just over 9 bucks at advance auto which is just around the corner from me. I am willing to pay that for a good oil and plus if you factor in the gas it cost to go to a motorcycle shop which is 25 to 30 min from me then it is worth it. I have noticed a difference in the way it shifts also.
