Hey all,
My 2009 M1100 dry clutch is slipping a bit at take off. The clutch pack has a few years on it since last replacement, but not too many miles and hasn't been ridden excessively hard. The bike runs great and shifts perfectly, just the slight slipping from a dead stop. Overall the bike is very well maintained and cared for. Is there any technique to freshen up the plates? If the plates are glazed over a bit, is there a way to correct it?
I would be nice to save the clutch if I could.
Thanks in advance.

If it's not slipping in a high gear at WOT then it's probably `OK.
Take it apart and clean the components - make a note of the stack order - and you can scotchbrite the steel plates.

My '95 900SS had the same issue.
I found taking the clutch cover off and using an air compressor, blowing it out while it was running in neutral worked. Pull and release the clutch lever a few times. It was surprising how much clutch dust came out.
Putting a ventilated clutch cover on helped as well.
