What type of oil are you using? Syntheic or Dino oil?rocky123 said:When riding a cold bike the clutch works fine. After about 10 minutes clutch will start to slip when excellerating. Eventually will disengage completely and bike will not move at all. Any idea's?
Whistle has got you covered .Depending on the milage ,more than likely the spring is the colpret. Other 1500 owner's are changing to the meanstreak spring or the 1600 spring. From what I've read elsewhere this is not an uncommon problem. With the age an possible milage you might want to change the clutch plates as well. (since you'll be in there anyway) IT's not a problem if you can fix it.whistle clean said:What type of oil are you using? Syntheic or Dino oil?
How many miles are on the clutch?
Have you tried adjusting the clutch?
It may be time for a spring replacement or possibly a clutch overhaul. You may want to read this info if you think the clutch has seen better days.
David from how I understand it the 1600 spring is actually the meanstreak spring to begin with . The quick way to find out is go to www.buykawasaki.com an look up part number's (meanstreak an 1600) an see if there both the same .ispeed77 said:chucks, do you know if that is a direct changeout, going to the 1600 spring ?
