A few months ago, I'd get this jerky, grabby, snatchy feel from my clutch on cold take-offs, never really had it happen at full temp running. I DO abuse the clutch alot on tight sections, since I am geared so high, I have taught my left hand to be my Rekluse, this bike never dies, but the plates take alot of abuse as I slip and feather the clutch. New Husky frictions are packaged as a set with the steels, for about $150. I got some Honda CRF450 plates for about $60 delivered, EBC friction plates, part # CK1247.

Took a 50 mile urban dual sport ride today and when I usually get the grinding/snatching/jerking action is GONE, it's all butter-smooth now, on cold take-offs in a high first gear with plenty of clutch slipping. The new EBC plates reduced my tab gap (Clutch housing to friction disc clearance) from .8mm to .6mm, the limit for wear. The .6 gap is probably the smallest I'll get it to, with all the wear on the clutch basket slots, but the .8mm gap that I did have was what I thought was giving me the snatching action on colds take-offs. Here's a pic of the plates for comparison, the EBC plates have the steel plates stacked in them, the Husky plates are on the right, the EBC plates seem to have more cork surface area than the OEM plates. I can tell there is no slipping going on, the new plates are hooking up real good.

Anybody have a P/N for the coolant temp sensor for my '09 450? I can't seem to find it in the Hall's parts PDF...

Make sure you get the newer, white model.

They had to order it, so with any luck they will get the newest design sent to them.

Thanks for the heads up

Possible, the guy I purchased it from lives in Southern California and he had a TE510 and SMR510 for sale. I drove from Vegas to pick it up, found the bike for sale on eBay.

The headlight is a 6 inch Rigid LED headlight.
