How long before clutch replacement?

4 posts in this topic

Hello. How long are people getting out of their clutches? 50,000 miles on the original clutch on mine and no problems as yet. Planning a longish trip and wondering whether to spend money on new plates and springs just in case. Cheers.

Hi Tim, mine's still fine, I guess a lot depends on how you ride. Any pics of the bike?

Also, if a previous owner used car oil. My last x11's clutch dissolved by 3k miles because of that!

 

If you do change it, get a couple of those basket retaining bolts as spares. They are designed to snap, you'll see why when you remove one!

Thanks for the replies. I'll do a visual check on the plates when I change the oil. Always been over serviced with annual oil changes so may still be in good nick but might be worth splashing out the £100 plus on a set of plates and springs for its 50,000 mile / 20th birthday. Not planning to change the basket unless the prongs are really notched. I imagine a basket would be expensive. Cheers.
