Hi, I'm a noob to the site. I love it!!!
I have a '97 VN750 with just under 20k miles. Lately, it seems like my clutch is slipping: when I rev, it pulls weak, as if I'm engaging the clutch lever even though I'm not. My questions are:
1. This sounds like clutch slippage, no? I'm 90% sure that's what it is, but wanted to make sure no one else had ideas.
2. I'm assuming the only fix is to replace the friction plates, right? I was going to overhaul the clutch with the EBC Kevlar clutch kit (as suggested in the Verses). Anyone have up-to-date photos of this job? The photo links in the Verses are dead and I've never done it.
3. 20k miles seems too early for this, no? I live in Manhattan and spend a lot of time in traffic (engaging the clutch), but I assumed I'd get closer to 30-40k or more. Does the kevlar kit wear significantly better? I don't want to do this every 20k miles.
