    egg motor clutch slip

    my 200 sprite - the previous owner installed a new piston. Compression feels higher than a stocker, and the clutch slips when kicking 50% of the time. worse when warm

    Whats the magical fix? new plates? are heavier springs available? is there an adjustment?

    BTW: plenty of cable free play........

    thanks

    Obviously check it out for worn out components, but you have to be very careful what oil is used in a wet clutch, modern car oils have all sorts of wonderful additives in them, very good friction eliminators are a problem for motorcycle clutches, so it is important to use motorcycle specific oils. If the wrong oil has been used, you will have to clean the plates thoroughly with petrol, and see if that works.

    I pulled apart the 200cc 4 spd. clutch. From what I understand, the 4 spd should have a 4 friction plate clutch, and the 5 speed a 5 plate, with a 1/2 special plate.

    My 200cc had the 5 spd clutch that was slipping. I have a new set of 4 spd. plates (4 friction type, slightly thicker). I swapped in the new 4 spd. plates AND added the extra special plate to tighten things up a little.

    Got it all back together. oil is Rotella 15-40. so far, no slip. releases fine too.

    You learn something every day.....
