Not at all, mixing the weights of oils usually isn't too big of a deal if it is in small quantities. Be sure to use Motorcycle specific oil though because automobile oil does not have the additives needed for a motorcycle's wet clutch.

Were you careful not to get your hands on the face of the clutch disc too much? Any indication of oil or grease around the disc, like from a leaking rear crank seal, when you changed the clutch?
Did you bleed the slave cylinder, to get all air out of the system?

If still no help, someone will have to troubleshoot it. A new clutch should not slip, especially with the flywheel polished to smooth.

Adjust your clutch, transmissions don't slip unless the gears are stripped.

Honda nifty bfifty clutch slip, how to adjust or is it oil filled centrifugal clutch, if so how do u fill


Hello David?
Motorcycles have what is called wet clutches. The clutch is bathed in the engine oil(crankcase oil ) To ck the adjustment, squeeze the clutch lever enough to take up any slack. There should be at least 1/4 in freeplay. If no free play the clutch will slip. Too much free play and the clutch won't dis-engage.after verifying free play, Take this part with serious thought. Wet clutches do not like motor oil. It causes the clutch to slip. So, If you have changed oil or have added any and it was not motorcycle engine oil, It is more than likely your problem. You will need to drain the oil and filter and put the right type into the engine. The clutch has np separate oil supply. Lever adjustment should be at the clutch lever clamp. Now what is this 50/50? Good Luck-
Ned

There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be opened up to replace it.
