F4 Clutch requiring replacement

People,

Been out today for a quick spin. In 5th and 6th gear at around 9000 rpm I get an increase in revs but no increase in speed. To me this sounds like a knackered clutch. I have been riding in traffic quite alot today.

The manual makes no reference to clutch replacement and I presume such a problem wont 'go away'

I have done a search on here and can find no threads which address the following - Can anyone advise on a good supplier of a clutch replacement kit in the UK and also if there are any 'nice to knows' when undertaking replacement?

Cheers

The manual says that the part numbers are

800081511 - plates
800081510 - plates
800092482 - springs

Is there some special tool needed to release the springs while disassembling and reassembling?

It would suggest that, I am hoping that a generic type tool would be sufficient

Wink

no special tools required;
drain the oil
pull the clutch cover
remove the 4 pressure plate screws
lift the pressure plate
remove the clutch pack
measure the discs

minimum clutch disc thickness 2.8mm
check for warping

bet its the springs.......

if the plates are within spec.....put stiffer springs in or shim the stock ones
inner valve springs are usually about the right size

my KTM Duke ll would light its clutch up.....Triumph triple inners fixed it

minimum spring length 57.9mm

PM the CAG for a clutch pack if you need one

You haven't been putting any 'Special' oil (or additives) in it have you...
