Clutch issue

Riding 2007 MV Agusta F41000R at COTA today and half way through the day started having clutch issues. Any acceleration above 6000-8000 rpm and engine revs to redline with little acceleration. Pulls hard until around 5000-6000 rpm. Is it time for a new clutch or any other issue it could be? Did bleed fluid with same result.

Current:

2014 Aprilia RSV4 R
2007 MV Agusta F41000R

Previous:

2004 Suzuki Boulevard M50
2001 Ducati 748
1991 Suzuki GSXR 1100
1988 Kawasaki EX500

Sounds like new clutch time to me

I was clutchless shifting today which I have not done much of in the past if that makes any difference. In first and second pulls wheel up in the low rpms.

Question ?

How many miles?

Never seen a Jap style wet clutch wear out.......

Junior has 3 NHRA National Championships with no issues......and he's making way

more HP than any MV....

Open it up and inspect it, measure friction plate thickness and look for blue spots on

the discs

Let us know what you find

Check lever adjustment Rich, and if that's fine remove and measure the plates and springs as per manual.

Lever seemed fine with good range and solid acceleration from a stop. Smooth shift to neutral and 1st/2nd. Will check plates/springs.

I have new full set of clutch plates and steel spacers that fit a 1078rr b4 brutale ,but i do not know if they fit your model,mine is 6 spring, but i do not think that is your problem .get a gauge and check them.it is more likely to be your springs.

cheers eddy
