Title: Make my day

Just took the A10 out for first run after recon clutch rebuild and it's slipping like a good un. Time to strip it again. I am sulking.

Such things ar disapointing, but hey, always opportunity to learn something new :O)

Everything from the cluctch handle until rod touching the clutch centre is 100% correctly addjusted ?

I'll be sure to check it all before I take the cover off, thanks.

Most likely too much oil (easily fixed) or the clutch springs need tightening up (means taking the cover off dammit),t his is a drama on my bike as getting the case oil tight involves lengthy gasket work  *work*

Finally, I have taken the covers off, and it does look like the springs were all a bit loose. 1 1/2 turns each, and back together for a test ride when the roads are dry.

I bet the 1-1/2 turns does it. I assume the lever is still a comfortable, but bit stronger, squeeze. I made the same mistake the last time I rebuilt my clutch, "Hey, I like how easy it is to squeeze the lever." I likethed it too much. (Here come the randy interpretations.)
