Lost your clutch? Did it run off somewhere? or is it slipping?

I don't know how mechanical you are. Hopfully a better mechanic than I am a speller, but here is an idea. Take it for what it's worth.

Por boy fix. (that is if it's just slipping)

Pull the clutch out. Take the plates. Not the ones with the little brake looking stuff on them. But the plates.

Then put them on the cement and skuff them up with your foot. Don't be easy, be rough, but not to rough. Put some scratches in it.

Button it all back together (don't forget to add oil) and your clutch should last you at least 1000-2500 more miles. Depending on how bad you abuse it.

I've done it in the past for friends that don't have the money for a new clutch.

I'm not saying it's the right thing to do. but it's been done. LOL

disclamer: Don't get in over your head. If you are really thinking of this. Get the SVC Manual or download it so you have some idea of what your dooing.

Good luck!

I fixed kyle's clutch for him, so he can ride now. He just needs to learn a thing or two about the bike so this shit doesn't happen again.

Yeah, but he should have to clutch it up. I mean it's not like He's riding an R1 in which case I could understand.
