On way to work I was hot dogin a bit and something happened.
The clutch just started slipping under throttle in every gear.
Being civil and just lollygagging around, everything works fine.

So here I am thinking.
I have a slow day, so lets play.
I'm about to tear into it and see whats up.
I have a feeling it is either the spring has given up or maybe I broke a plate again..
I'll let you know soon and post a pic of what I find.

Here is what i found.. another broken steel neer the bottom of the stack.
It did tear some of the clutch lining off the pucks so the stack will be a bit thin. I hope it will hold still.
Im putting it back together with a new steel. I'm glad I got a couple extra from Barnett last time it broke.

They never did say why it is breaking them.
I'm sure its slupping just a bit and over heats.

iNSaNeSHaNe, I admire how you remain resolutely cheerful and get on with it.

How much wobble do you have on the 6009 bearing? Maybe the bearing is allowing precession of the clutch basket which combined with high torque is flaying your clutch plates.

The Scorpion clutch offers wider steels that might be stronger but it's an expensive piece.

If it was slipping it would be blue. I think it is impact and maybe fit on the hub. Burnouts/wheelies?

Oh that's a dumb question......

They don't call me Ironhead Rick just because I'm hard headed
