FB has had a few fairly active posts regarding a handful of early clutch failures on the 790 Adventures and a few have been catastrophic in nature. I have not had any issues with mine so far but with 11.5K miles (18.5 Km) on the clock with a good chunk of that in the dirt and being a pretty heavy clutch slipper I decided to take a proactive look-see. What follows is what I found. It's not meant to "prove" anything. It's just a one of sample off a single 790 that I know has seen more hard use than some. I don't make my living turning wrenches so any and all opinions, theories, or conclusions expressed below should be taken with a grain of salt and I'll be happy to have anyone with more knowledge chime in! Opening it up: After pulling off the clutch cover I did notice a thin sticky film on the clutch pressure cap. Nothing extreme. Heat related I would guess. A sign of a bit too much heat? I don't know, but I will admit the clutch has been hammered on a bit from time to time. I went ahead and pulled the entire assembly because I wanted to take a look at the bearing and washers behind the clutch as well. Didn't see anything here that was a cause for concern and no signs of overheating. Clutch pack: The outer disc did seem pretty dry but it's been about 3 weeks since the bike was run. All the inner discs and plates were moist. No extreme discoloration present IMHO and no signs of severe overheating, warping, or damage. Clutch basket: Nothing of note in my opinion. Very light wear. Basket springs were tight. Inner hub: I do find some slight damage to inner hub - I'll be checking with a trusted local mechanic who has no dog in the fight about whether I need to consider replacing the inner hub or not. Opinions from inmates welcome. Measurements: Clutchpack repair manual specs: New= 35.6mm to 36.5mm / Wear limit 34.80mm Mine Measured 36.07mm so in good shape there. Clutch Spring length repair manual specs 43+mm. Mine all measured slightly under spec. The shortest one was 41.92mm. (will order fresh ones) Thoughts: I'm a bit disappointed that the clutch springs are slightly out of spec so soon. I can't think of any good reason they would be. I suspect I could throw them back in and not have any problems out of them for a long time. I'll be replacing them simply because they are out of spec. The chatter marks on the inner hub are bumming me out a little. I'm just gonna come out and say I suspect the QS to be the cause (pure speculation on my part). I disabled the QS as soon as I got the software downloaded by the dealer to do so but I did play with it a few days early on before I opted to disable it and keep it disabled. Conclusion: Meh... I don't see anything that causes me panic. The clutch discs are a bit thinner by design than some so they may take less abuse than heavier ones. Even though it does look like I got the clutch a bit hot a few times there was no apparent damage to any of the discs or plates and the clutch pack still measures within the "New" spec range. All in all I'm pretty ok with how the clutch has held up considering the use it's had. Would I have preferred to find ZERO issues on a 12k mile clutch? Sure, but I'll own a portion of the blame, order up a few parts to be on the safe side and be right back at it.
