I have an 06 yz450 that the clutch will creap until I crack the trottle a little and it will free up. I have adj. clutch cable ,inspected the clutch plates , I change the oil every 4 hrs, the only thing I've done different was to change to a new oil (ester base). I just now change the oil again but with a petro. base and still have the same problem. I've owned this bike for 3 year this a first. I also have set the idle. has anyone had a simular problem. thanks, jik

Make sure you check the metals and not just the plates , it doesn't take much to make them lurch forward. Also if thats the original clutch , might be time to replace anyhow....good luck

The basket may be getting a little notched also. If and when you do put a new basket and plates and springs in you can get a little longer service out of the clutch by replaceing the springs in it every so often.

This applies a little more grab action to the plates when the the clutch is engaged.

thanks guys, but I went and rode about 50 miles this morning with the petro base in and after about 10 miles it started working like a champ. I guess the clutches don't like the other stuff.

It isn't true in every case with every conceivable oil, but in general, with a YZF, if you have a clutch problem that can be "cured" by switching oils, switching oils did not really cure the problem, it just covered it up.
