If you did use the wrong oil, then you'll need to change your clutch anyway. There is no reliable way to get the oil out of the clutch. It's a valid point that these wet clutches need oil specifically for a wet clutch.enigmas said:Try changing the brand of oil you use first, its relatively cheap and easy. As Max inferred do not use any car engine oils as the friction modifiers used in these oils cause clutch slip on "wet" motorcycle clutches.
....or Mobil 1 EXTENDED PERFORMANCE instead of the Mobil 1 V-Twin! That's how I cooked my clutch. :hidesbeh: :boltMax said:It sounds as though it is clutch time. All it takes is one failed burnout or riding the clutch on this bike to shorten the life. Also you haven't used regular motor oil instead of motorcycle wet clutch oil I hope?
Count yourself lucky and dump those levers. If this had happened on the BRAKE SIDE, you would have locked up the front wheel and gone down. Just ask Danno, or Capt Close. Dump the Levers. Get HD stockers or Chromed ones.sonnyd said:Bought the bleeder from Max,Changed the fluid (dot 5) I use Amsoil in the crankcae
Seems when I broke a lever in Sturgis last year I bought some Kuryakyn levers & they wern't letting the clutch engage fully along with the old Fluid,clutch is OK no burned plates
