Who has replaced their clutch, and how many miles did you get on your original (assuming that some have done it more than once)?

I just came back from a ride yesterday and took everything apart to check the plates (didn't feel like I had much left) and found that @4500 miles it was smoked. I don't feather the clutch, ride in a lot of traffic, have "bad winding out" launches...it seems a little premature to me.

input?

My clutch went out at 9K miles. I ride in a lot of traffic too, but aside from that I wouldn't say I'm hard on the bike. The only thing I upgraded was the slave cylinder, the rest is OEM.

I think these things happen, unfortunately. Thank god for the warranty!

Bassphreek, you don't tell us what model you ride or if you have a wet or dry clutch. The life and performance is very different between the two.

I've got 12,000 miles on my '06 mono which sees quite a bit of stop and go traffic. I'm thinking it's about due. My track bike went 5500 miles before I replaced it with a slipper. It still has life left in it too.
Something doesn't sound right to me if you're not abusing your clutch.

What would moisture do? I ride just about year round (if the weather agrees) and there may have been moisture since its an open clutch. I wouldn't say that I have a damp garage, but quick move outside and a quick temp change could bring moisture.

Does this make any sense?

Any other thoughts?
