    Well..... I was searching on this site trying to find info on clutch adjustments, and kept reading about the "clutch spring" issue. I had glanced at mine and it appeared to be on but upon further inspection I found that it was improperly hooked. So, after fixing the problem my clutch enagement is now at about 75% instead of the more commonly found 90%+.



    So this is more of a "Thank You!" to all that have fixed/discovered this problem and were generous enough to share that information.



    I thought that it was just a fluke thing that showed up on random bikes but it appears to be more of an international problem as I am located in Canada. Which is all the more reason why I wanted to do this write up, because this goes beyond maintenance. This is production error.



    Anyways, thanks again.



    P.S.



    My list of fixes thanks to this site includes brakes and adjustments, mirrors, clutch spring, foot peg mod, oil change procedures and probably a few other things I can't think of right now.

    Using the search function. But really, the clutch spring is installed kinda backwards at the case sometimes. The picture here on the forum somewhere really helps show you what could be off.

    If it's not at the spring, get your cables adjusted right and do an oil change with some moto oil. I won't go any deeper into what kind of oil because that's a can of worms or barrel of monkeys or something. A good chain adjustment can get rid of too much slop or too much play in the clutch as well, so consider that. If those fail you, it's time to get in there and do a little work.

    Noticed some major slipping on mine tonight on a short test ride, after a little touch of it the other day. Knew I was in for a clutch job. I did a bit of poking around here, and this showed my spring is unlatched also. I'll pop it on and hope for the best tomorrow. Thanks again TW200Forum! Loren

    It is way better than it was, but this morning it was still slipping just below full throttle on 4th and 5th. As it warmed up a bit the slipping went away. 1/2 hour of riding and no slipping. Thinking it'll be back again tomorrow probably?

    The clutch on my parts bike was barely holding. I upgraded to some after market clutch springs and now all is well. Not a hard job but use a torque wrench.

    Long live the internal combustion engine!
