Clutch still slipping after new frictions and steels.

So I changed my clutch plates out and found out 2 pieces were in pieces...

Changed with OEM parts and still slipping the same way when they were broken.. Anyone have an idea?

Yes I adjusted the dial for the clutch adjustment and right by the clutch cover, and the clutch lever when pulled is still soft with no resistance.

Bike is a 2010 CBR 1000

You obviously have something unusual going on, you've done a reasonable job of trying to fix it yourself and repaired a secondary issue (broken disc's), maybe one of our sponsor shops will be able to help you move forward.

I don't mean to sound like a but you may have the adjustment set wrong. I have seen handfuls of individuals think they adjusted it properly and it's not. I would start there.

Second would be your installation. I'm guilty myself of assembling something I'm 100% sure is correct and come to find out I muffed up. happens. If the adjustment doesn't work take it all back apart and insure you have it installed correctly and have the correct parts.

Did you change out the steels and the friction plates? Also why a clutch swap on a relatively new bike?

Thanks for the replies lol no offense taken at all, love hearing the input..

You're right ill just bring it in to a professional.

Don't know how previous owner treated the bike, and glad I found out that the clutch frictions were in pieces so I can change them out. So little miles 4500 and I'm in a shithole right now..

If the clutch plates were in pieces what did the pressure plate look like?

Haven't read everything Ill go back after this but the oil is a huge part , be sure to use proper motorcycle oil, regular car oil with cause them to slip.


Just a while back I had 1 tapered washer backwards and completely had it slipping, luckily we have more bikes and I took another apart and found the trouble.

I was going to also suggest oil, If he changed type that is. I have heard stories from reputable sources of some bikes slipping simply because a full synthetic oil was used for the fist time.

But I figured this would be the least likely scenario and to avoid suggesting it and someone going out and spending unnecessary coin on oil before ruling out all other possibilities.

If he is, then he's good, but this is going to be important. And yes, dino oil for break-in, then switch to synth.

Automotive synthetics have moly, which can hose your motorcycle clutch, cause it to slip.

Also many bikes have one friction plate that is different than the rest and needs to be stacked in a specific order. You probably bought the complete clutch kit so wasn't obvious but go to the Honda parts fiche and see if all frictions have the same p/n.

I'm one of those who has run tons of non Moto specific oil with zero issues. That being said I would change oils. Some bikes don't act right with certain oils. My Busa slipped on amsoil.

Order of friction and steel right? Correct amount right? When you said the friction plates were in pieces, how bad was it? What made to think it was the plates? OEM plates? What's the mileage in the bike?
