Re: clutch slipping
Written by kaarmikle on 3/6/2019 at 11:39 am

My '96 with about 70k on it had plenty of clutch plates left but I put new plates and springs in mine anyway.  Previous owner wasn't as heavy as I am but did do touring for most of those miles. I only noticed a  little slip under hard accel in 4th and 5th gear, which isn't too often with me.  I think I could have easily gotten by with either new springs or adding a couple washers like someone has suggested here before.
Here is the specs on the suggested washers someone else posted, if I remember correctly he suggested using two of this size washer per spring.0.798"OD x 0.515"ID x 0.055
