Clutch basketYou will need the fibre clutch plates and I would be replacing the clutch springs because the 400 had weeker springs than the 450 (04YM). Also check if the metal plates are blue this is a sign they are bernt and they may need replacing if it has been slipping for a period of time. Use 10w 40 oil. Motul or Motoex oil they are good and go genuine some non genuine plates can swell and cause drag. Sometimes the basket may have small wear marks on the fingers. If it has you can clean them up with a file but dont take to much off. The only other reason you would replace the basket is if the damper rubbers between the basket and big gear are worn.Try and move the gear and hold the basket, if the gear moves the dampers are worn and need replacing, I think you can get the dampers seperate. If you go to a good Gas Gas dealer you wont get riped off, I would take your plates in and ask for the mechanic for advice and not the parts person.,,,

Motorcycle loses power and just revs when accelerating


the problem is not your tuning, it is your clutch. Motorcycle clutches are maintained as light as possible to stop heavy pressure on your fingers. often when you increase hp, you must increase your spring pressure on your clutch plates so the first thing is to adjust your clutch, if it is too tight it will slip under load (more load = more slip). second,clutches do wear out so if adjusting does not work you will have to inspect your clutch plates for wear and may even have to increase your spring pressure, this is a big job and you will need special gear to do it

Transmission slipping in 2nd gear under hard acceleration


You need to replace the clutch plates. Once they start to slip you won't be able to readjust them with any success. Take a good look at both fiber clutch plates and the metal ones. You can replace just the fiber plates and it most likely won't slip anymore, but if you replace both fiber and metal plates it will last much longer. If you are on a budget and want to temporary repair it you can add washers to the clutch springs to add tension. Use spark plug washers, they fit perfect. I've done this on a couple of motorcycles with good results. But i do recommend replacing the clutch plates as i stated above.

Clutch slipping under load in 5th gear


When the bike is in the higher gears that is when the most load is on the clutch. If the bike is slipping it may be due to wear on the clutch components. One quick check is to smell the oil and if the oil smells burnt it is slipping and may do more damage if continued to be ridden. The hydraulic master cylinder should also be checked for proper operation. If you are towing a trailer and / or riding two up a lot it also puts more load on the clutch. You should also be aware that many synthetic oils like Mobil 1 are not rated properly for a wet clutch system. They are simply to slick. Your owners manual indicates that any oil that you use should be Jaso MA rated. That is compatible with wet clutches.
I hope that this helps.

Second gear slip fj11


1. If second gear is acting like in and out of gear under load the gears are worn needing replacement engine removal and lower end work.
2. If your accelerating and the engine begins to accelerate steadily to a point that your motorcycle is not reacting along with the engine you have a slipping clutch. If this is the problem replace the clutch plates and springs.

Wont spin cycle at full speed


Burning smell is a slipping belt. These are tricky to get apart and diagnose but find the reason the belt is slipping and replacing it will solve your problem. Could be clutch, bearing or gearcase related.

Why a clutch would need to be replaced with low


abnormal wear and tear due to being ridden by driver and burning it to the point of slipping is usually the answer,premature clutch wear is nearly always driver error,unless the car is only a few months old and it has let go

1991 Toyota pickup 4WD clutch slipping


There is an adjustment for the clutch pedal under the dash where the push rod goes thru the firewall. There is only aprx. 1/2" of adjustment so be careful when making an adjustment, if your clutch is slipping then you need to shorten the throw of the push rod.
