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

    I had clutch slippage years ago on my current 98 which I bought used. To save money I tried just putting in new springs and sanding the plates that have the friction material on them. It worked for a year I think then started slippi
