The clutches may use similar materials but are not interchangeable. Wet clutches and Dry clutches provide the same functionality (transmitting torque to the gearsets) and use similar materials, but their design is very different due to their intended function. A wet clutch must be bathed in oil at all times or it will fail very quickly, due to excessive ...

They are different materials. They cannot be interchanged. For example a dry clutch material that gets contaminated with oil slips or gets jerky in operation...

I will listen to the video again when I am in a quieter place, but it doesn't sound like the engine is turning over. That tells me it is probably a problem with the battery (best case scenario), or the starter motor. My first 2 checks would be: Get the battery tested at an auto parts store Try jumping the bike using a car battery. Car red (+) terminal to ...

The best choice for any two stroke air cooled engine is an oil specifally designed for that application. Two stroke oils are designed to burn cleanly and leave no ash behind which is what you want. Look for API "TC" and also JASO FA and FB ratings.

I would check your fuel line. If it cuts out on you like that then its either lack of air, fuel, or spark, right? First I'd check the fuel line and then I'd examine the petcock mechanism. Id definitely start there before embarking on a carb rebuild. That being said, depending on the last time they were cleaned it might not hurt. First things first, start ...

You haven't seen copper exhaust because it is not a good idea. I wondered myself years ago; why isn't copper used at higher temperatures? It has reasonable high temperature oxidation resistance. The problem is that copper oxides have a significantly different thermal expansion rate from the metal so the oxide layer spalls off as the metal goes through heat ...

It will leave a nice matte finish on your pipes after application. For a better application that will last longer you might need to sandpaper your pipes thoroughly first and rub them with some alcohol solution prior to ...

Without knowing the current draw of the bike when its off its hard to estimate- so I'll relate my own experience instead of trying to answer your question directly. If you don't take your battery out and put it on a tender for the winter, you might need a new one after in the spring. If you leave it in and have it on a tender, it will likely be ok, but only ...

I recently did this for the first time and my windshield got little bubbles all over it and now I guess needs to be replaced. I don't know what else could have caused it. Ido live 3 blocks off the Gulf but I usually let my bike completely cool before I cover it and got home late and only waited until it was warm enough I could touch the pipes without ...
