Clutch issues

Is it possible that my clutch is bad @ 12k miles? It started slipping this morning at half throttle accelerations....it felt like clutch. I've never messed around with a motorcycle clutch. Could it be I need tighter springs if there's enough pad material? I haven't opened it yet.

First of all would the recall have any effect on the clutch slipping? I know the recal was for the bushings in the clutch but....

Secondly if it's not a recall issue what clutch would you all recamend that would last the longest?

I ride a 2016 Turismo Veloce 800

Thanks

Hey,

I am no mechanic so just a dumb ass thought - have you done a service and replaced the oil with car oil? There friction modifiers that shouldn't be used in a bike.

I want this to be true. My oil is at 2600 miles and I used vp racing motorcycle oil. It's about time to change it.

Please have this be the answer Lord!

I think my wife will divorce me if this bike has one more problem with it....

Did you take it to a dealer and had them service it or did you buy the parts and do it yourself?

I don't want this to keep happening with any of the parts that constantly break on this motorcycle so I'm looking for a semi permanent solution ie more heavy duty

I had a similar issue and it was the clutch cable binding, disconnect the clutch cable at the engine and check to make sure the cable moves in and out freely

Thank you for the thought but my bike has a hydraulically actuated clutch

The clutch is a maintenance item. You can easily burn your clutch out with that many miles and much less. It all depends on how you ride.

I just bought some motul and a new filter. Here's for hoping.

Going with the cheapest option first... I know it's a wear item but dang I'd like to think my constant use of the quick shifter and 90% Highway miles would make it last longer than 12,000.
