    Hope someone can help me with this.
    Where the clutch cable goes into the motor case, there is an alignment Marg for clutch adjustment/wear.
    My clutch sits about 1/4" behind that Marg.
    Do I need a new clutch?
    Do I need to adjust the push rod?
    I've noticed that when I accelerate briskly the motor sounds like it kicks into overdrive then gradually speeds up. Is that a sign of a worn clutch?
    An added note: There is 47,000 miles on this clutch.

    You probably need to replace the clutch springs only....

    I agree

    and on a side note TEnkle I noticed that you are from Indiana. A couple of Indiana guys are hoping to get together sometime this spring and go on a ride. Would be cool if you would want to go too...

    If it's slipping and past the wear indicators then I would definitely replace the clutch disks as well as the springs.

    At 47,000 miles I would replace both the clutch discs and springs with Barnett discs and springs.

    With 47k on the clock and if the clutch hasn't been changed. Also from what you discribed, I would be shopping for a new clutch.

    Barnett makes a very nice clutch for your bike. When I had my 650 that's what I put in and was very pleased with the results.

    Happy Holidays!

    Thanks everyone for your help. Guess I'll go ahead and order plates and springs.

    I am unaware of the wear indicators for the clutch. What should I be looking for?
    Thanks and Happy New Year:
