That's very helpfull info, Thanks very much magnapoxy.
Hello. I'm looking at possibly spending winters in southern Arizona and would like to find out if there are specific
area;s that are more trials focused. The plan would be to rent in an RV park and hopefully be able to ride near by.
Thanks for any input.
Forgot to ask. I like the feel of a quicker more grabby clutch(on-off switch kinda) Is there a way to get that
So ... I put everything back together.I did notice the thicker friction plate was in the outermost position
(closest to the clutch case cover ,I re installed it in the innermost position. I did not sand the friction plates , thought
I would try to find some thinner plates and try that first. The clutch fluid was very dirty so I flushed the lines and removed the top hat
and cleaned that out also. Everything is back together now ,clutch is a little bit easier . Something new has come up since
doing all this,now when I pull the clutch in the bike wants to creep forward so the clutch is not fully disengaging. Bleeding the clutch took a while to get all the air bubbles out but it now feels very solid . Could the creeping forward when clutch is engaged be anything else other than air still being trapped in the system ?
Got it... Thanks Lineaway. I'll do some sanding of the friction plates tomorrow.
Hi Lineaway. In your earlier post on this thread you said ,It's the finger height that matters
they should be between 17.5-18mm,could you clarify please. thanks
I forgot to mention .The thickest friction plate was positioned to the outside of the stack,facing the clutch case
cover, I've changed it to the inner most position ,
This is what I found today when I had a look at the clutch...
The clutch pack thickness is 9.85 which seems to be in the ballpark from what I understand.
The finger height would appear to be off ; Measured several fingers, 15.33 15.23 15.21
14.75 14.27 15.05 etc does this mean I need new fingers? Any input would be very much
appreciated . included a few pics of wear on underside of fingers.
I assume my 2014 would not be considered as the latest clutch with the 3 adjustments?
From what I'm learning here I think I will lighten up the pull with clutch pack thickness if possible,
as I'm in the early stages of trying to learn the basic skills, as my skills improve(hopefully) and I want
more agressive clutch I can adjust again . The ATF, I'm learning, is an interesting subject. I'm hearing that there are
many very different opinions on the use of this stuff. Some say it's great others have told me if it has run with ATF
don't buy it. At some point I think I'll just try it and see if I can notice any positive or negative differences .
Hi scifi.Thanks. Where I am in canmore ,alberta. there is not much for organized trials
unfortunately. Myself and a freind are trying to learn some trials skills of the internet and dvd's such
as Ryan young training video's. the 300 seems to be ok I would just like to lighten up the
clutch a bit,which I've gotten some good information about on this forum. More bikes ,yea, that's
allways a good thing.North Wales sounds like a great place to be a trials rider ,good for you. Thanks for
the welcome. brian
Hi d2w.I've used the rotella in dual sport bikes I've had and It seemed to work fine but I've been told by a few trials dealers
now that I should not use synthetic oil in the trials bike,I geuss due to the heavy clutch usage. I take it you've been using it
with no issues ?
Thanks peter valuable information , I have heard of many riders using ATF ,for now I've got a few ltrs
of 80w belray gearsaver. After getting more time under my belt riding I may try some different oil options.I will
keep the ATF in mind ,Thanks again to all, this is very helpful in getting me on the right track,or maybe the way I'll
be riding off the track completely ......
Thanks to everyone for all the info,very helpful.
I'm not to clear on how to measure the finger height. It looks like there was video on that
at one point but no longer. Is it the plate thickness that adjusts the finger height or something else?
Regarding the belville spring ,so I'm assuming that mine being the thinner of the two at 1.5mm it
would be the easier to pull one vs the 1.7 stiffer correct?
Hello,I'm new to the forum and trials,I've just purchased a 2014 txt pro 300 it has a stiff clutch compared to
a txt raga 250 that I was able to try out this past winter.The 250 clutch was very effortless. I would like to make my 300
feel as good.I've researched some possible fixes ,measure clutch pack to make sure within spec,this is the first
thing I will do. Does anyone know if the 250 comes with softer springs in the clutch ,if so is there any issue with
installing a 250 kit in the 300. I'm a beginner in trials ,I have been riding for several yrs on dual sport bikes and figure
it's time to learn some real skills. thanks for any input.
Hello, I've just picked up a gasgas txt 300 pro,Would have liked 200-250cc but hard to find
used and summer may be over by the time I find one,so ,diving head first so to speak.I look forward to
learning lots on this forum. brian
