First off, welcome to the both of you.

Is the oil you used synthetic? Synthetic will cause slipping.

u did put the metal clutch plates rough side tords the motor right? oh and if u adjusted the clutch cable make sure u have a little play in the clutch arm on the motor it self, if it has no slack then the prussure plate can not close all the way so it will slip and will burn your clutch out fast!

no its no synthetic, iy was however 20w50 thats pretty thick could this be a prob? yes i adjusted it several times has correct amount of slack. clutch plates are facing correct way. ive ben rebuilding atvs and bikes my whole life and this has never happened to me!

try a quality motorcycle oil, if u run automotive oil it has friction reducers in it. Are u sure its the clutch slipping??? Is it jerking??

no its no jerking and is def the clutch i was also thinking maybe it over heated the springs causing them to lose tension

Did you double up on the friction plates...my bf says that when u put the new clutch in if u put another friction plate in it tightens things up pretty good.

no, i never heard of that before, but i shouldnt have to do that, the only mods are a stage 2 cam, supertrap exaust, and open airbox(no lid). so it shouldnt be to much pwr for it .

The Warrior is notorious for slipping clutches.

LT250R is right, lildaisygrl doesn't always translate my wordings right :) You want to run an extra steel plate in the stack.

These motors also heat up and the oil breaks down quick. You may want to consider doing an oil cooler mod.

What clutch kit did you put in it? It wasn't by any chance Barnett was it?

And synthetic motorcycle oil will not cause slippage. Automotive Synthetic will if it has friction reducers.

Well I know with my TRX450 a synthetic oil in the tranny side will cause slipping. Honda has told me this and I have a riding buddy who exp it 1st hand.

It's not because of the vague description of Synthetic oil.

Honda says you can run Synthetic in both sides of the motor. Tranny side, run a Synthetic that has no Molybednium Disulfide. (They sell two versions of their HP4 oil, one with moly and one without - your manual I believe suggests GN4 or HP4, without moly).

OK, maybe that's what it is. I know that they told me not to run a certain type so I don't. I use GN4 in both sides.

is it bad to rev while you are holding the clutch in? j/w cause when i stop, pull the clutch in and shift there is no display so i rev it and the display comes back up and there is this terrrrreible smell.

      Hi everyone,
      I have a question, if the starter clutch gear looks fine but is still not working correctly then all I should need to replace is the one way bearing, right?
      thanks,

      hey I'm dave westfall I'm new I just became an official member of this site a few minutes ago. Ive been crazy about quads and bikes since I was about 3 and ive always done my home work on them figuratively speaking. I would say for comparison to the common man that I am pretty knowledgeable about them. its been my passion about most of my life. I love talking about quads and bikes so if anyone out there would like to talk with me about mechanical subjects or about person experiences while riding or just shoot the breeze please feel free to chat with me. I'm looking forward to it.

      Anyone know of a good repair besides replacement for the ever cracking Big Bear 350 intakes. Replaced with a Zoom Zoom about two operational hours ago and the new one is cracked.
