I would like to know if my clutch plate can be the reason that my top speed is now lower.

Top speed of my bike is 115. I drove my bike after the clutch plate replacement and the top speed is now 90- 105.

Can My clutch plate replacement cause this issue?

  • I don't see how what you are saying is possible. Changing a clutch doesn't change your gearing. You probably have a slipping clutch. Can you edit your question and give a little more attention to adding as much information as you can? Be sure to add the year of your bike and any additional symptoms. – Ppoggio Dec 26 '15 at 18:51
  • When you're at top speed, is your RPM reading the same as before, or lower as well? – raydowe Jan 13 '17 at 12:39

There is no way changing a clutch plate is going to limit your top speed. There are two big things which can limit it:

  • Engine power
  • Transmission/final gearing

I would suggest engine power is down somewhat for some reason, because I doubt your final gearing ratio has had any changes to it.
