Hello ,
I've put new clutch plates in my 96 blade but when its all tightened up there is no pressure on the clutch lever . I've noticed that there is scoring on the clutch centre from the clutch springs . Does anyone know if this would stop the clutch working ? I've checked the , judder spring is around the correct way and the friction plates are in the correct order. Driving me mad .
Thanks

If you've replaced with the same number of plates in that you took out, there should be no issues. That bit of info aside, I've never had a clutch issue do to the wear from the fiber's tangs or the clutch springs. Anytime there is an issue, either the lifter pin is installed incorrectly, the arm in the clutch cover (called the clutch lever lol) is not aligned properly to engage the lifter pin, the cable decided to snap, or the adjustment is wrong.

So I found out that the 1996 and 1997 blades have different clutch stack heights for the clutch . I was sent the wrong set.

I replaced them with a full EBC set of clutch plates, steel plates and springs. The clutch was then incredibly heavy so I took it a part again and re-measured it . The clutch springs supplied by EBC were 46mm instead of 50mm.😠

I Put some different springs in and it works fine.

Lesson learned here is measure everything you are sent and compare it to the bike manual before you install it as different years of blades vary on their clutch plate thickness and springs. A lot of parts companies aren't even aware of this.

Thanks
