Anyone.....need advice....help near Gypsum. Got a tiger 800 with a slipping clutch. What to do?¿??
First off make sure the cable or hydraulic mechanism that actuates the clutch isn’t failing to fully release pressure on the pressure plate. If that’s not the problem then either the clutch pack is too thin due to wear or the springs aren’t providing enough clamping force, or both.
Spark plug washers seem to fit most clutch springs and can be used to add preload to get a few more miles out of a weak one. Otherwise new plates and springs is the usual cure. If the plates are badly glazed from riding with it slipping it may help to rough them up a little. Good luck!
Thanks.... We have it apart. Planning to hit the plates with 1500grt... Brakleen.... And reassemble....
We have ALL cable slack availability.... It still seems right!!!
I'd use 320 wet-or-dry. Don't want to polish them.
Forgot to add, make sure that the stack of friction plates slides smoothly up and down in the basket and that the stack of metal plates slide smoothly up and down on the hub.
And oil the friction plates as you reassemble the stack so they don't burn.
Do you have a place to stay? Tools? I’m in Aspen so not to far. And I have a truck/trailer
Staying on BLM land... Outside gypsum..... Gonna hit O'Reilly in a.m.. go from there!!!!
Just down the highway from Gypsum. Might have a solution or technician to help

Do you mean it still seems tight? If the cable is tight that’s almost certainly your problem.
Cable should have a little play when it’s released.
Plates are so thin ... Can't get any slack ,. .... New plates being overnighted to Eagle Co... Be on bdr by 12:00 hopefully!!
Did the new friction plates solve the problem?
Sure did... 20 minutes to change plates.. We hit I70 east for 900 miles.
