With the clutch discs removed, when you push on the hub in neutral it should spin inside the clutch basket.

Re: Clutch adjustment

That would eliminate some drag, but you'd still have some from the transmission gears, chain, rear hub, brake, etc.

I don't remember if it spun except w the clutch in. Whatever is going on seems to make the clutch pull harder as well unless the TWF cable routing is off.

Re: Clutch adjustment

Think I found something finally! The first friction disc next to the seat seems to stick in the basket when I pull the clutch. 3 tabs of the disc move with the pack while the rest barely move at all. This isn't normal right?

I cannot speak for this specific clutch but it's not normal on any multi-plate clutch system that I've ever worked on.Check for burrs anywhere.

https://youtu.be/AbGpHuXiEEg Guess I didn't notice this the first time because I only checked the movement of one tab on the disc
