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.,,,

Clutch slipping


if it started slipping in 4th then get a new car. The transmission is going out. 4th gear is connected to the clutch and you will need to replace the clutch and the transmission when it gets worse. It costs in upwards of 2,000 dollars to replace and or rebuild. Good Luck

2006 Harley Electra-Glide, Twin cam 88, six speed tranny slipping/popping gears when under acceleration. Multiple pops. Tried adjusting clutch and it got worse. Mainly in lower gears but does it...


If your clutch is not slipping check your shift linkage joints. Rocking the bike lets you know your tranny has gears but the shifter pawl may need adjustment

2004 Celica clutch is slipping after car is underway .Say you are going 30 and accelerate the clutch will slip


It sounds like your clutch plate has worn away so slips when under pressure ie,pulling up hill or a heavy right foot.An easy way to test this is to pull your hand break on and try to pull away,if your revs lift without pulling the car then its slipping, there are clutch kits out there for around 50-70,they come with a new clutch plate,new bearing and a new preasure plate.If you do the job yourself make certain that no oily hands or grease gets anywher near the new clutch plate as i found out to my expence.It slipped as the old 1 did so had to do the job twice.Good luck and hope this helps.

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.

Car slipping in uphill acceleration is it my tires or something more is wrong with it?


Hi,
If the engine is revving but your not going forward then it sounds like your clutch is slipping if it is a manual, or the clutch packs are worn if it is an automatic transmission. Either way the clutch or transmission will need to be repaired or replaced. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

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.

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.
