    Clutch slipping after big power boost

    Hi. Recently had Morley muscle kit and a full UFO system on my bike and after it come back from the rolling road the clutch is now slipping. I gained 40+bhp so it's obviously struggling to cope now. Would heavy clutch springs solve the problem?

    6k on new clutch and slipping again

    So last summer my original clutch was slipping worse and worse by the day, at that point the bike had around 25k miles. It was driveable, but any sort of acceleration in 1-2-3 and even 4th would slip and the motor would spin up. Seemed like kind of a short life for a clutch, but replaced it...

    V Boost or slipping clutch?

    Ive had my max for about 6 months and really love it. I was hoping some of you guys could reassure me about a worry i have. When im in top gear and hit 6000rpm the V boost starts to kick in, but before any noticable increase in speed the revs rise to around 9000rpm for a second then drop to...

    limited slip differential oil additives for slipping clutch

    We maxers tend to stay away from oil additives fearing that the clutch will slip but products made for limited slip differentials are made to prevent clutch slipping since these kinds of differentials have clutch plates in them. I thought this might be a useful thing to try if clutch slipping is...
