Clutch Refresh - to fix slipping

Post by batmantis » Sun Oct 08, 2017 7:29 pm

Hi all,

My 2015 Superduke has had a slipping clutch since I got it. It was awful at first - basically slipping every time under full throttle from 7000rpm in 3rd - 6th.
I took a little off the lever pin, put the Superduke GT springs in, put a second set of shims in and changed to fresh Motorex. This improved it hugely, but there is still some slip in 4th and 5th mainly and at full load (wide open throttle from around 7k). It happens at random now - but definitely is worse as the engine gets warmer.
The next thing I want to do is refresh the clutch as maybe the previous owner had done some damage putting nearly 5000 miles on the clutch with it slipping.

Would this kit be all that would be needed?

I had considered a second set of shims but I don't want to make the clutch pull awful and have trouble with neutral etc
