Since you dive in there, check the central nut.

Today found a friend's clutch had the central nut loose. Could be the reason for wierd behaviour. Guess it needs 32mm or 34mm socket.

I believe that this whole oil jet misery (the one on the other side of the bike at the CS) is a bit overrated on this forum.. IMO restriction in this jet (even if it's fully cloged) is not likely to destroy the clutch, unless you're sliping the clutch at the rpm limiter on desert like sand or on heavy uphill rides all day... (which would probably kill the clutch anyway:))

It's not the main, neither is the only oil feed source for the clutch, and as you may all know, it wasn't present on early production bikes - so not Meoni's bike is what I'm talking about (and these bikes ran lots of problem free miles as well)

just my $0.02..

I just put a Outlaw clutch kit in my 2006 950 adv. 300 miles so far so good. It was like $100. Purely experimental.
But worth a shot.

My clutch was dragging annoyingly from the first week. It may have been because the first weekend I tried its off road abilities and ended up stuck in the mud and tried to spin my way out. I finally got the clutch assy replaced under warranty on the last day of its 3 year warranty. So I believe oil rduction jet is there for a reason.
Cheers.
