I was up camping over the weekend and my clutch was giving me problems. I would start the bike, let it warm up and when I would put it in gear it would die. I could get it to stay running by bliping the throttle with the clutch pulled in but I could be riding at a low 1st gear speed with the clutch in and the bike would just idle along and not slow down as long as I was on a flat surface. I adjusted it every possible way checked the oil level and nothing helped....even after a good 1 hour ride and slipping the clutch a couple times. I got home and opened it up and all my plates and springs are within spec and no wear on the pressure plate or the inside of the cover. Before the clutch would engage when I let the lever about 1/2 way out....now it engages about 3/4 of the way out. I have only had the bike a couple months and bought it from the original owner. He said it was the original clutch.
