  • Clutch slipping

    Hello, new to the group. I was hoping someone could give me some help on an issue I am having. I am riding a 99 roadstar 1600 and having issues with I believe the clutch and is slipping at high rpms. Whenever I get on it I go no where. Rides fine if I don't. If anyone could give me any insight on if that is the problem or no that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Try adjusting the freeplay at the lever first;http://www.werder.ee/Manual/XV1600.pdf

        How many miles on the bike? Usually folks just upgrade to the Barnett spring with the OEM plates. The plates last forever.

          Unless you let it slip forever before upgrading.

        from Solon, IA Not trying to be insulting, but are you using a motorcycle oil designed for a wet clutch? Today's automotive oils with friction modifiers don't play well.

          Was having the same issue on my 01....installed the Barnett Clutch conversion with the heavier springs cause I ride 2up quite a bit.....didn’t need to do anything to the stock plates everything works perfect and better than new....hardest part of the job was getting the gasket off.....while you’re there do your oil pump pulley...

              I was having the same issue with my 02 1600, so before I got into springs and parts and all that, I tried a quart of Lucas motorcycle oil, picked it up at autozone... it can be used in the engine, primary, trans, etc, and is designed for use with a wet clutch, I only put a little bit in but noticed results immediately, no more slip, no more noise, bike is running like a raped ape... hope this helps!

                So you added how much to your existing oil ? Little Bit ?

              from Ontario, Canada. Had the same issue with my 03 Midnight so i installed the Barnett Spring Conversion kit and OEM plates and now its very responsive and no slippage.
