Clutch binding

1006 Views 9 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Retro
I started to notice this a bit yesterday and now my clutch is seeming to be tight when pulling in and binding a bit when I release (reduced pressure against the lever that is, not really the engagement of the clutch itself).

It seems like this is often a clutch slave issue, but I had an Evoluzione installed less than a year ago. Has anyone seen a failure in one of their units?

The other possible culprit might be the rod that pushes out the clutch plate. I replaced the plate and the rod came out when I tried to get the bearing out of the plate. I kept it clean and there was grease still on it when I replaced it, but could I have messed something up in doing that?

Hoping you mechanical whizzes out there can help...

Possibly your basket is getting notchy from the plates?

That seems like it would give you those symptoms.
