I know of one company that is putting a kit together now. I'll post a "How to" when it shows up. :doorag:

i also have the 3m and noticed harder pulles when shifting to 2nd and 3rd... first time i got on it i swore i lifted the front tire off the ground as soon as i hit 2nd gear... but make sure your clutch is adjusted, we go with about the thinckness of a quater I used to work @ Roseanau Power sports we never had a problem...

i was just stating clutch cable end play correct play it 10-15 mm (.4-.6 in) a quater use as a quick and close enough adjustment is .64 in thick... i have the jsd-3m and a pc3 my bike does not feel like it slips in anyway...

Not long ago I thought my clutch was starting to slip. This would happen on a hard take off. As it turned out it was not the clutch, it was the tire loosing traction.

i want what you guys are smoking at Rosenau Powersports. luckily i bought my bike elsewhere. i just micd' a quarter and it was .067 thick, not .64. the easyist way is to just put a ruler up to the grip and leave a half inch of play at the lever end.

Thx Bad109 I will do that. Yes this is my first bike so I could be scerwing it up and not even know. The bad thing is about not riding before is I don't know what to look out for or what sound is bad . But I do know this switching gears from 1st to 2nd makes me think I mucking my bike up. Do you guys think we are trying to race it to much as in want a big boast from 1st to 2nd ? I must admit I like it but the owners manual has switching from 1st to 2nd in the teens I think. Also my dipstick is on 1/3 what do you think to bring it to full ?

are you running synthetic yet? it helps from 1st to 2nd. just adjust your clutch properly according to your manual and make sure you shift from 1st to 2nd with authority. it will get better. when i do an oil change and it shows low. i would add .1 qt. and check daily before each ride until its perfect. it doesnt take much at this point. make sure you check it exactly like the manual says.

ps- dont worry what the manual says about shifting. 31 mph in 5th? heck im still in 1st or 2nd at that point.

NO................................................. ::) Have you seen the clutch in these bikes ? If its messing up its do to improper adjustment or rider error. I could see after a bunch of abuse of racing but on the street the tire would slip before the clutch if you know how to ride a bike.At the track if your sliding the clutch outta the hole to pick up your 60 foot you could wear one pretty fast but I dont think thats the case here and other places on the board.Its plain out and out rider error slipping the clutch and tearing it up.
As JR knows I have quite a few passes on my clutch and it is still doing the trick just fine 11.865 @ 111.23 with a 1.744 60', so if any of you have destroyed a clutch already it might be time to rethink your riding style.


And you may notice I am not real easy on the clutch...............Or the YFZ1000 in the other lane :a20:
