Hi I'm trying to stop my clutch slipping, can anyone tell me where to buy new corks or if I make them how thick they need to be? also what is the right oil and amount I should use, clutch plates have blued a little from heat would this make any differents(they are still flat) Thanks Paul

Hi Paul, the oil for the chaincase is SAE 30. There are two plugs in the chaincase, the one at the top is for filling and the one lower down is the oil level plug. You probably need new corks for your slipping clutch. Once when my bike had the same problem I added an extra plate, it has never slipped since.

clutch slip

A word of advice. Dont use car oils in motorcycle clutches as they have friction reducers that will make a clutch slip. A straight motorcycle oil or even ATF transmission oil.

slipping clutch 8E engine

Post  StuFalcon67 on Wed Mar 31, 2010 9:50 pm

Hi long time no post, have been running the Falcon around the lakes on good days. I went to the easter egg run at Keswick last Sunday and burnt the clutch out on the way home. Wife was non to please to pick me up.

I have re-corked it with wine bottle corks. I have simmered them in a pan on the cooker for 20minutes to soften them up and pushed them into the holes in the clutch plates. I now intend to cut and sand them down to about 2mm each side. I am following some instructions on a Notrun forum. Has anyone else done this? Or should I buy some special corks? Does anyone know where I can get some?

Thanks
