This doesn't make any sense to me at all, but hopefully one of you has run across this and can help: I recently upgraded the clutch on my '00 426 with the 2001 seat plate, spring plate, and final friction plate. After doing so, I noticed the clutch dragged. My first moto on it I stalled it quite a few times because I'd pull in the clutch, step on the brake, and it would die. I thought I had fixed it by moving the adjuster on the engine case (preset more pull thinking I just wasn't reaching the end of the clutch pull with the new plates). Well, that didn't work, it still drags. I had it apart last night and this is what I found: With the pressure plate off and all the drive and friction plates removed, the clutch boss spins freely. Each time I add a friction and drive plate, it gets progressively harder to spin. By the time the entire stack is put on, I can't spin it by hand anymore. Also, if I pull in the comp release, hold the kill switch and kick her, it lurches forward like the clutch is grabbing. I reassembled and held the clutch in and repeated, it still grabbed. I'm stumped, why the h-e-double hockey sticks is the damn thing dragging so much? I have the new parts installed correctly per the partsfish blowup and the spring plate has "OUTSIDE" facing outside. If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear 'em. This is dangerous as well as frustrating.
