#1: yamaha pw80 clutch

Posted on 2005-03-10 02:24:24 by John Smith

Having trouble with the clutch slipping when getting on the throttle. I
have replaced the friction plates but that did not help. Any ideas?

If you have a service manual, you might check the spring specs and
compare them to your actual springs. The drive plates might also be
worn (or warped). And finally, flush out that ATF fluid and fill with
oil! ;-&gt;

I would verify that the driven plates are within spec and not warped and
I'd replace the springs.

This is assuming a PW80 clutch is a 'traditional' clutch and doesn't have
any oddball issues specific to it...

Thanks for the ideas, I'll check the springs and drive plates.

Before you do any of that, what type of oil are you running?
I believe the spec is regular 10W30. Don't run synthetic.

I am using penzoil 10w30 right now. Should I be using something else?

Oh. You know, I shoulda known that. I had a PW80 once, for a few weeks.
They say the memory is the 2nd thing to go.

Never mind what I said. Do what Jeff says.

That's what I always used, no problem. How old is your bike?

I bet there is a proceedure to adjusting the clutching mechanism which is
operated as you move shifter either up or down.

I bet it is tricky, honda is similiar but in different place to adjust, and
on the honda's I can never get them either...

Yeah, we're dolts. I made the incorrect assumption that the PW80
was simply a more modern GT80... I guess in some ways it is, sans the
manual clutch. Sorry for the poor advice.

It is a 2000 model pw80. The manual tells me to check the length of each
clutch spring and off spring. Check the thickness of the friction
plates, which are new, so I know they are good. And to check for clutch
plate warp allowance. Also need to measure the gap between the friction
plate and pressure plate, if the gap is found incorrect, it should be
properly adjusted by changing the thickness of the cluth plate.
Looks like I'll be taking the cluth out this weekend and borrowing a set
of calipers from work and find the problem.
