Re: Clutch adjustment

It doesn't include the basket. Just the steel and friction plates, and springs. Where are you in NoVA? I am by no means an expert, but I can stop by and take a look at what you're dealing with if you're not too far from me.

Fredericksburg, as long as it's actually the basket I should get it sorted in time but if not..in the schematic idk what else could possibly cause this. Almost ordered a new clutch pack but I found out the steels from my gen1 are the same also both push rods.

OK, I'm near Tysons so it's a bit far to just pop by. Hopefully you got it sorted out. LMK if you need my clutch kit - I can hold on to it for a few days before returning it. Are you racing at Summit this weekend?

Re: Clutch adjustment

Thanks, no im riding w PRE at ncbike..well im trying to cancel at this point but don't think I can.

Got the clutch back together but its still not working. Filed down the notch in the picture but since it was more of a crater I didn't want to remove too much material..seems like it must be good looking at other notched baskets though. Also it gets worse when hot, and I hear a slight knocking sound as the clutch is released in gear not in neutral. Noticed a tiny amount of play in the basket after it's torqued.

Re: Clutch adjustment

Found a couple interesting things, the basket has play less than 1mm. Between the spacer and shaft. Also some of the springs move freely inside the gear on the back of the basket but ive read this is normal?

Re: Clutch adjustment

More or less solved the issue. Found out today I could swap from my gen1 to gen2 the basket/discs/hub/spacers/throw out bearing/pressure plate and the rod that pushes it. Allows enough disengagement now although I didnt try adjusting the external mechanism 1/4 turn out, it might be 1/16 out. The original seemed to have a biting point and a point before that where some drag started, but not after the swap.
Unfortunately this was my last day to prep the bike and the clutch pull was much too hard. I could feel the cable binding, so I swapped to the OEM style again and it was smoother but just as hard and binding as well. I can't find any info about the proper routing of the TWF race cable.
