WR450F 04 Clutch ?

5 posts in this topic

Everytime I Start my NEW WR450 with the clutch pulled and in gear it wants to jump forward. There not huge jumps just enough to pi$$ me off. I tightened my Clutch cable and it didn't change much. :thumbsup:

lots of high powered bikes have "draggy" clutches. better then it slipping. mine did it at first a bit too. but it didn't bother me. it would still E start every time.

This is normal with a cold engine when hot oil has not got between the clutch plates on a high torque engine like the WR450. It will not release due to the extra high friction until the hot oil gets it lubed up. :thumbsup:

Indy stop talking like that!!!! :thumbsup:

Mine is worse about it when I have the heavier oil in it for summer, until it warms up.

I don't want to start a oil brand war.

And I am making no claims on which is better.

But I know my bike does not do this when Amsoil is in my crankcase!

But, I haven't tried to crank it with the temperature below 35 degrees either.

I do agree with your explanation on why the clutch grabs when cold.
