Afternoon All,

After a years ownership and use I got half way up High Button yesterday and fried my clutch. When I got it back, cleaned and stripped there is a horrible burnt smell, blackened plates and destroyed friction linings ripped up, melted and fused with friction material bits loose in the clutch basket.

A mixture of lack of mechanical empathy, clutch hand slipping and 400cc of Honda torque I guess. Luckily not worse though I guess.

So, question to those of you with more than a years worth of XR400 experience, is there anything I should consider doing instead of a straight replacement of Honda OEM friction and steel plates?

Many thanks.

Stuart

Check the length of your springs against a new one; any doubt, replace them. Not specific to XRs, just general. I'd also check any seals near the basket, it would have got pretty hot.
