Question that goes along with the clutch...

In case you haven't been caught up on the clutch issue... check out:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=105360


So my question is (After I got a PM) should I still use AMSOIL(sp) Synthetic in the bike or did this not affect anything?

How many miles on the bike? I never use synthetic until after 1,500 miles to assure that the rings have seated and everything is ready for the oil.

I have used Amsoil synthetic and other synthetics on my R1 since 1500 miles. I replaced the plates/clutch springs at 40,000 miles and they still looked great!

I highly doubt the oil had anything to do with that. Are you sure the clutch plates weren't in tact when you removed the cover and were broken when trying to remove them?

Were the broken friction plates not the OEM stock plates?

This was the second clutch replacement on that bike... My guess is rider error... just plain if you ask me!
