man what the f*** more clutch issues.
some of you may remember i ended up replacing a LOT of stuff in my clutch due to my issue with the needle bearings causing mass havoc on my clutch.
Since then everything has ran perfectly with no issues.
Today coming out of a corner I got on it, shifted gears, and letting out on the clutch there was resistance. I thought "What in the hell?" and thought "oh not this again" except I looked down and everything was fine!
I pushed it in again, and again... shifted gears and letting out had resistance. I looked down and one of the plates was STUCK outside the basket!!!!!
I get the toolkit out of the tail of my bike and disassemble everything and could not for the life of me figure out what was wrong. Oddly enough though... I can SHIFT the whole damn thing from pressure plate and the pack back and forth to the position where the plate was coming out. Essentially one of the plates spins when I push on the clutch and it hangs up outside the basket.
I noticed that the master cyl also spit fluid all over the place... I'm THINKING I have a slave cylinder failure, anyone else? I was able to get it home clutchless shifting it the whole way oh so carefully.
Perhaps something else? Seems like I shouldn't be able to shift anything back and forth, that made absolutely no sense to me....
FAWWWWWK i'm so mad right now. So tired of dealing with clutch issues. Sorry for the anger... just mad at the bike.
