Question about 2000 Yamaha Royal Star Venture
The RSV uses a hydraulic actuated clutch...so there is no adjustments.
Periodic maintenance involves replacing the brake fluid in the clutch, and bleeding the air out of the slave cylinder.
The single spring on the clutch itself tend to get weak and cause slippage....Barnett offers a kit to replace the spring with a heavier duty one.
Its also very important to use motor oil that does not have the energy conserving symbol as it will promote clutch slippage in the wet plate clutch in the Venture.

join delphi forums, they have many many tips for concerns, search for a royal star forum in there.....GREAT PEOPLE, i belong to the vstar rider one.
but look into replacing the weak clutch springs with heavy duty barnett springs, probably just weak.....
oil changes are with motorcycle wet clutch oil? auto engine oil has additives that will cause slippage .

Yamaha has a curved washer style clutch spring that it uses for this model. These have been prone to slipping from day 1. Normally when you get on the throttle hot and heavy. A new spring will help the situation for a while but you may have to replace the clutch pack to get more pressure through out the clutch pack if the bike has high miles on it. Maybe the dealer would know if the VMAX spring is heavier and would work as a replacement.
