Disintegrating Clutch?...

I have been rebuilding my Garelli engine due to a crank seal. When I saw that the clutch that I had put into the bike about a month ago was crumbling around the lip. I was curious if anyone has had this happen or what exactly could be the cause.

was it rubbber?

SABAT!

Re: Disintegrating Clutch?...

Yes it is rubber. And no sign that a rock or pebble had gotten inside to eat i up either.

Re: Disintegrating Clutch?...

This is what it looks like at the moment. Haven't decided if I am going to replace it or just ride it till it gives. First I need to try and determine the cause...

i would run it.

its probably was just broken before you put it in and then when it spun at 8k it broke off

i would clean out the inside of the clutch side with alot of carb cleaner and visual inspect it for peices then keep blasting

Re: Disintegrating Clutch?...

make sure you use nondetergent 30wt oil in your tranny.

Re: Disintegrating Clutch?...

I keep an eye on that... 30ND all the way... The rubber isnt brittle either.....

Re: Disintegrating Clutch?...

When I put it in it was pretty stable but of course there is always a possibility that it had a light fracture that I could not see. It is running a 30W non detergent.
