Extremely frustrating clutch slip, with a more stressful suprise.
So after adjusting my clutch cable for a couple weeks ive decided this clutch slip has to be the friction plates. So I order a set of plates and springs, for my "1993" cbr 900. After a week of bullsh!t excuses from my local supplier as to why they were shipping so slow, I get the kit. I do the job, old friction plates not visibly really worn, but there were ten friction plates in the bike!!! Yes, two plates on each other without a metal plate in between. So yeah I pull the bike out, excited to finally get some power out of it for the first time since I bought it, but I lean over the side to adjust the clutch, and something catches my eye, the CC stamp on the engine...919cc. Yep, my 93 frame has a much newer engine in it, good news, but also terrible. Just put the wrong plates in. Try em anyway shifts so smooth, clutch lever feels so much better, now it slips more than ever. What the f*ck is wrong, please I beg someone to help me. And I doubt its the clutch plates, they cant be that off, can they? And the old plates didnt even look that worn.
