R1 Clutch Slipping

Damn... I knew it was going to happen soon. Last week I was at a memorial from a fellow biker that got killed by a car. It's customary that all bikers meet somewhere and all drive around and to the place of the accident. There we all do donuts and tire burnouts. I just did a little of tire burnout and it looks like it ate some of my clutch too. Since that day, if I rev over 5000rpm it goes straight to 12000rpm without moving any faster. Tried adjusting the wheel tensioner at the clutch handle but it didn't affect. I ordered a clutch on ebay, complete with steel plates. Hopefully I can do it myself, I got the service manual.


  1. Update: I Installed the clutch without any issue. I bought the Barnett racing clutch. Soaked the friction plates in oil...it was a piece of cake to do.

  2. New Launch Pulsar Light Sports is a class leading 135 cc bike new launch by bajaj.

  3. My husband needs to get a new clutch also. He told me that it will go 10x fast with a new one.. I was like .. hell no.. i'm not ridding with you after that. I'm a tomboy but .. i'm not into street bikes as much as he is. Dirt bikes .. i hate them. We want to get two quads someday !
