CLUTCH SLIPPAGE ON GL1500

Postby martinarial » Tue Sep 14, 2010 12:18 pm



Hello again fellow Wingers ;)

I usually ride alone (i.e. no passenger) so I never experienced this problem on my 1988 Goldwing, but I just found out a couple of weeks back that, when riding 2-up, and driving hard (i.e. frequent passing, strong acceleration) that my clutch slips at high RPM while accelerating... So I'm wondering if some of you guys ever experienced this on your GL1500? Is this a sure sign of clutch plates wear, or perhaps just the oil that is too slippery (I use 1 quart LUCAS with my oil). Thanks in advance!
