I burned up the stock clutch at my last race. I made the mistake of practicing starts too many times in and when it came time for the race I killed it at the start. Then I raced the entire race with the clutch slipping terribly whenever I hit the power band. Since I needed repairs I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to the factory (STM) slipper clutch. Itís on order and should show up any day.
Iíve never replaced a clutch before. Seems easy but I hope I didnít waist money replacing all the friction plates and steel plates. Someone told me if the steel plates are blue they need to be replaced. They are all a blue/black. Anyone know how to tell if they are beat?
I also noticed that the only friction plate that seemed wasted was the first plate (inner most) did I not need to replace the rest?
Anyone know how to tell if I need to replace the judder spring and associated ring/ they are the same color as the steel plates. No apparent warping.
Any advice from an experienced clutch killer/replacer would be appreciated.
