I assume we are lead to believe that it is the triumph in his bike list. if it was not, he would have specified.

thanks for your amazing input

and way to name drop ducati as if they are the only manufacturer of factory production dry clutches.

Never assume anything, you could be telling him to bathe the dry clutch on his....wait for the name drop...... Moto Guzzi in oil. That would be bad. I know it may seem weird but not everyone lists all of their bikes on MH.

thank you for the extremely amazing advice. i will never assume anything again.

and with the moto guzzi name drop... they also have some production wet clutches

now back to the OP, what bike are you referring to? one with a wet clutch?> perhaps your triumph? please... please... correct me if i am wrong.

Weird so you were working on a bike that was not listed in your MH profile...

I should be thanked for being thorough, I could have saved your clutch if it were a dry clutch.

Let's be frank: a dry clutch in a modern motorcycle is certainly an outlier. Enough so that if you were asking for info on one............you would probably mention that its "not normal."

I don't like brake parts cleaner, its Dichloro Methane, aka DCM, the stuff that removes paint and it's really bad for you too

unless you need something non flamable (DCM is not flamable) I LOVE to use eather (starter fluid spray, diethyl ether)

it's a great solvent, and dries fast and is usually the cheapest solvent in a spray can at wallmart

try it and you will like it, plus it's not really toxic
