Showa forks came out in 2000. The brakes were upgraded in '01. I'm going to sell my 2000 but I got to change the tire. I let a guy ride it last sat and he trashed the rear tire.

You sure on the fork change information? I spent a bunch of time researching the different year 315's and was certain that the Showa suspension was a 2001 change. I think it important to clarify this as it would be a deal breaker in my mind.

Yes

You are correct, the Paoli forks are standard on the 97-99, and Showa for 2000-2004 315. I stand corrected.

Here is the '03 That I bought on Tuesday. Just like you said it drags the clutch, especially when cold. Could you give me more info on the fix?

Here are a couple pics of my new addition/addiction!

Clutch Fix

Congrats on the bike. They really are fun to ride, and easy to maintain. Heck, the one I got served as a trainer and comp bike for many years with very little in the way of TLC. I rebuilt the thing because the bike really deserved better.

I had good luck and am happy with the following: Pulled clutch, being very mindful as to orientation of the 7 fiber discs. See that 4 are different thickness than the others(they go in a particular fashion-refer to manual). I took the metal plates and roughed them up real good with 150 grit. Don't be shy. Some use the ATF fluids, but, I happened to have a bit of the ELF HTX fluid called for in the manual. This stuff is amazing in the feel of the clutch. Result is much much less drag at all temps. Be aware a bit of drag is expected and as you learn to ride it is desired.

Option two is get an aftermarket Mitiani clutch. I think they are about $120. They have different fiber material and have very little drag. I think if my 315 were my primary trialer, and I was resonbly sure I was gonna stick with it, then I would do option two.




Happy trialing!

Nice looking '03.

Before you peel the plates out of the bike... I have an '01 315R that had similar problems BTW.... bleed the clutch, make sure the clutch lever is adjusted correctly and order a master cylinder rebuild kit to have sitting in your box of spares for when the time comes.

There should be 3 fiber and 2 paper friction plates, the paper ones are the last ones on. Some people have put CR250 clutches in and they have 7 fiber plates. If it has 7 plates in it it will drag. I put the Mitiani clutch in mine and used the elf HTX740 and as the British say"this works a treat".

Seems spendy but the condition and market scarcity will dictate.

I have a 2001 I'm considering selling for ~2k as is (needs a new silencer, loads of scratches).

I thought a 94 would have been a 314R, ??
I thought the 315 came out in 07???

Dirty, good score! With the right input that bike will do anything you need it to.

The bike may, but I'm not sure about the rider

Yes, the rider provides the input, that's the hard part.

Here's my old 02

I was searching for another bike and came across this thread. I sold that one after a lack of use but want to get back into it.
Garthe, where do you ride in the Valley? I'm out in FJ, Superior and TM all the time with my buggy.
