Clutch temp...

So, I have been pondering this. My bike, when first started has super good low end. The clutch slip is incredible. After about 5 minutes of riding, everything heats up and the slip isnt nearly as good.

Elliot I know you said you tried some scooter tranny fluid that didnt heat up as much, but does it slip as good as 5w-20? Is there any other way to keep the temp down a little bit in there?

I hate puch clutches.

Re: Clutch temp...

i've heard people talk about this before but i don't really get it. seems like it would slip more as fluids become more viscus from being heated. but there's a lot of expansion going on in there too.

i think its more of a top end problem, metals expanding and your charge becoming heated seems the characteristics of an air cooled 2 stroke.

i 'm on my __ clutch i saw its all chewed i put it on for seattle, longest lasting one yet though, but its far too heavy and engages very soon.

Re: Clutch temp...

I dont think its a top end problem. I am not losing power any where else. I have had that problem before. Not running a cool enough plug or whatever, but like I said, no loss of power anywhere else. But once my bike is really hot, I lose like half my slip.

bump for elliot.

Re: Clutch temp...

ive noticed the same thing on my magnum. i'm running 5w-20 (royal purple synthetic) with a 3 shoe and paz springs on a metra80 with a simonini. when it first starts up, i can rev the living piss out of it before the clutch will grab. and my clutch isnt even tuned into the pipe's powerband. then after a little while, it grabs much sooner. i just assumed it was because of the expansion inside the engine.

Re: Clutch temp...

gee motobecanes don't have that problem

Dry clutches FTW!

Re: Clutch temp...

A thought:

In my Ford rear axle, which is a posi-traction, with clutches, they add a bottle of "modifier". Even with synthetic oil, you still need this modifier. Without it, the clutches grab too much. The modifier allows it to slip some.

So - my suggestion, buy a bottle of "friction modifier" at the local parts store and put in a small amount.

Re: Clutch temp...

Hmmm, an interesting thought. Anyone else have thoughtsw on this. I might go give it a shot.

Re: Clutch temp...

ok so it's rock oil semi syth scooter aft.

there is a specific # after the words atf semi synthetic that i do not remember, but i am going to the shop today so i will check out what it says and post it.

O and yeah it blasts consistently all the time, its not as slippy (but pretty damn good slip way better than type F) as the moble 1 but its consistent every time and u can just tune/mod the clutch so it can slip just as much.
