Clutch Release

I can't seem to find any posts about this problem so here goes. My 2016 TVL is very sensitive when I try and let out the clutch from a complete stop. If I don't very gently and slowly let it engage, the machine acts like a bucking bronco. Before I call my local dealer and engage the service department in another dead-end conversation, does anyone have any insight on what I should look for?

The only problem I'm aware of is the pressure switch leaks.
Which eventually depletes the fluid in the reservoir.

How is the lever travel?
How is the fluid level in the clutch reservoir?

For a temp repair see these threads: https://www.mvagusta.net/forum/74-tu...ch-switch.html

Lever travel is very good and zero problems with fluid leaks. The entire action is quite smooth as long as I don't let it out too quick.

Is it possible that the Cush drive rubbers are causing or contributing to this problem?

My Turismo had the same problem. During my almost 18,000 miles of ownership I changed the clutch switch once and cush drive rubbers a few times and also had the recall for the clutch update carried out by my dealer. None of these resolved the issue. The clutch was never particularly precise with a slight click felt at the lever on release. The kangaroo thing was a rare occurrence but it was pretty annoying, if not dangerous, when it happened. It is something that other TV owners have experienced and reported on this forum.

A suggested theory is that it's something to do with the slipper clutch, however, it's really the wrong direction of drive for this to be happening. Maybe the slipper clutch design is at fault?

Hi
Maybe you get your clutch basket checked. Your TV has a silver engine, so it has been produced in 2015 or 2016. A clutch update is supposed to be applied on those as part of a service bulletin (details here: http://net.mvagusta.it/article_attac...ment_view/2602) applicable to TV until VIN V001790

In anycase, it's worth to check that it has been done (https://www.mvagusta.net/forum/129-m...ch-basket.html)

Marc,

Looking forward for MVArdeche event in 2019

Slipper clutch can cause erratic engagement depending on operation prior to disengaging and coming to a stop. High rpm deceleration with a last minute dis-engagement can leave the slipper partially loaded. Probably some other scenarios as well. The click felt is the slipper deactivating.

At least that's my theory.....

I had the Bulletin 168 clutch update performed at 6900 miles. I now have 16K miles. Nothing much has changed. When I engage the clutch, I don't hear a click. So I'm not sure about the slipper clutch phenomena.
Anybody have any advice on how maybe to get this bike off from a dead stop a little quicker? I've owned maybe 30 different motorcycles over a span of about 55 years and this one is the hardest ever to get smoothly going.

Has this occurred from new?
What oil is used?

My Turismo, '16 does not act as you describe.
However, with similar owner experience as you, I can ride around a lot of machine problems.

Maybe technique?
Maybe the clutch disks are glazed and need resurfacing or replacement?
Have you tried different engine oil?

Rode a Buell for 12 years with constant concern that the drive belt would break, it never did. But, that concern modified my launch from a stop technique to be very progressive over time without too much sipping of the clutch.

(I don't like the hydro clutch or the slipper feature; and if it were cost effective I'd gladly do away with both.)

Oil is proper. Riding technique is satisfactory, considering the years I've been doing it.
Just talked to a tech at my local dealer. Clueless. Why do I bother?
Guess it's time to get the service manual out and start taking things apart.
