I expect my clutch to die because of the way I drive and when it does I'll install a Stage 2 and keep rolling.

I used to take it pretty easy on the car, but once it kept getting noiser and noiser, I decided might as well grind the gears.

I can always get a replacement, just didn't think the clutch would give out so easily.

Rather disappointing, eh?

Did you buy the car new? How many miles do you have?

It was new. Stiff as could be every time I got in it.

Now? Loose as can be. How terrible!

I made plenty of laps on it. May not have many miles, but it sure was ridden hard the times I got on it.

Go to this thread for the TSB number on the clutch. It is defective. Mine was stiff as could be from the factory and I knew there was something wrong with it...
