Default Despairing clutch...

After all his troubles, my friend installed a brand new primary clutch from CPP (CPP05); it is the very exact same I installed on mine more than a year ago without any trouble.

But on his, after a couple of weeks, it was moving a bit so I opened it and discovered all 6 plastic sliders were all broken and felt apart (see part #14 on attached picture of the G16-A clutch which is very similar if not the same).

What could have caused this to happen? What can he do before arranging his new clutch or it will happen again...

I am starting to lose hope for him...

Thanks

Wow! I have never seen those "broken into pieces" before, and I have seen a few clutches in my cart wrenching days. He's running a engine with reasonable or stock hp? Wow! Still, never seen those broken, even on V-twins. Spider not tight enough? (But on a new clutch?) Crazy! Never once seen that before!

Original Yamaha engine (301cc same as G16-A)... Still having his governor (quite low even, so no over rpm); anyway this clutch is supposed to be able to handle it.

I am afraid the bushing perhaps will also need to be changed, no idea...

Did your friend get a new clutch from CPP ? I want to purchase a clutch for my G2 and didn’t see anything about a warranty on their web site .

If there is a one year warranty, Bruce requested him, and it is natural, to have the clutch back... The trouble is we are in Philippines and the shipping cost would be enormous. As the slidders were not in place anymore, the clutch moved inside in all ways, and metal is rugged in plenty of places and I suspect the bushing is finished as well... In fact the clutch is totally finished. What would be the answer about the warranty... no idea!

Of course, things would be different as you are in the US!

For my friend, I do not know what he is planning now...

We did but Bruce wants to receive the clutch back... It would cost half the price of it to return it (I have good price USA -> Philippines, not the same the other way).

So...
