Just installed a new Hinson clutch, complete with springs and steels. When I put everything together, I had to adjust the cable quite a bit tighter to get the pull. Thought that was strange so I pulled everything apart again to double check. All was good, lubed up the fibers some more and reassembled. Started the bike up and the clutch dragged bad... so bad it would stall when clicked in gear if you didn't rev it. So I took it apart regretfully for a 3rd time to re inspect again. This time I soaked the plates a little longer in oil and that helped a bit. I've done many clutches before, never run across this problem. Maybe this will just break in? It does operate ok, just dragging some when stopped and its hard to get neutral. Any thoughts? No more testing time, race day is almost here!
