clutch slipping
« on: June 29, 2019, 07:35:00 pm »
Clutch started slipping on hard acceleration so I rebuilt the master and slave cylinders. Rode to work and it seemed fine. Went for a ride this morning and after about 80 miles it started slipping again. I took it apart to check the star springs and they are fine, but the clutch plate has gouges all the way around it. Any ideas? I'll try to post a picture.

What is the mileage on the motor? Pic of the gouges in the clutch would help.
Also, what do ya have in the motor? Some car oils contain friction modifiers and they ruin wet clutches.
