clutch slips

Postby bartman1167 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 12:38 pm



I have an 86 Sei with 69000 miles on the clock. I bought her as a non runner a couple of years ago while I was working in afghanistan. Had a mechanic get her running for me. After about 2000 miles the clucth started to slip when she got warmed up. So I had a clutch job done by the same mechanic. After another 600 miles the clutch started to slip again so I rebuilt the master and slave cylnders, both were full of pink slime and the pressure relief hole was pluged. Clutch still sliped but I got some play in the clutch. So I just had the clutch redone and timing belts done by a different mechanic. Worked fine for the first 200 miles or so then it started to slip again after 10miles or so also noticed that the oil temp hit 5 bars while the water temp only hit 2 and the fan did not turn on. I did check that the fan fuse is good and there was power at the fuse. Help the weather up here is starting to get nice and I can't ride.

When clutch was rebuilt were new clutch springs installed & what type oil are you using ?

New springs were not used and I am using castrol motorcycle 10-40 oil.

Oil should be fine.I would consider installing new clutch springs. Looks like DISK B, CL FRICTION 22202-ML8-600 and PLATE B, CLUTCH 22322-ML8-000 has been discontinued by Honda. Mechanic may have had to reuse these two old discs in clutch due to them being no longer availiable. You may want to check e-bay for a good used complete clutch basket Just a thought.

Found oil in coolant,looks like bad head gasket. I provided the mechanic with the clutch friction plates off of ebay.
