Clutch advice after being rearended.
I was rearended on my 2004 CBR 600 F4i. Never dropped, owned from new. 54,000km 33,500Miles for my american friends.
I had never had any clutch issues before being hit. I was stopped for 2 pedestrians and young girl, probably texting, hit me. Bike landed on right side and my leg. No apparent frame damage. Exhaust was OEM so I got a new stubby exhaust. Once that was installed I started her for the first time since accident. Engine sounds fine, had it on a stand, so I went to test first gear. immediately stalled like I didn't have clutch lever pulled and disengaged. Pull felt normal don't think tension was off. And it had free-play.
I have since taken the clutch apart as far as the frictions/steels and ordered a rebuild kit from outlaw racing.
Need advice on the clutch baskets as I still don't understand what caused this behavior.
I see wear on the inner basket where the springs go, more on one than the other. Last summer on really hot days it was a bit harder to find neutral sometimes had to roll a bit before it would go back in. Not sure if that helps.
