Replace the clutch pads, don’t wait for the clutch pads to wear out first and then replace them, why? This time, I want to give tips on wet type clutches that are available in moped or sport motorbikes. For bikers, clutch motorbikes, especially manual clutches, are sure to wear the clutch more quickly than the automatic clutch type like in most moped motorbikes. For normal conditions, the clutch is worn in the range of 20 thousand km, in the 20 thousand and above, the symptoms of the clutch lining are worn, such as the initial pull / acceleration when you release the clutch lever. And the motorbikes usually have a heavy pull from second gear onwards.
If there are already signs of such symptoms then immediately replace the clutch lining, if not replaced immediately then the consequences will be fatal because it will spread to other parts to wear out and service costs become swollen. What should only be replace the clutch lining but because it is ignored other problems such as the clutch housing and close the clutch.
In fact, the clutch can be used up to 50 thousand km, even if the use of the motorbike does not often ‘hang the clutch’ like my next door neighbor, he is a motorbike mechanic whose motorbike is already 55 thousand km. If you are a beginner bikers, you will definitely not use the clutch pad above 30 thousand km, because you often hang the clutch lever even when you are often visited by consumers who have not been able to use the new manual clutch motor, only 5 thousand km, the clutch is worn and the clutch housing condition is burnt. So my advice is not to wait for the canvases to wear out until the motorbike can’t be replaced, it’s cost-effective. Like this one vixion consumer, he comes to the workshop asking to replace his clutch lining even though the motorbike is only 26 thousand km. better replaced before it gets worse.
Pay for one more tip when installing the clutch lining, tell the installed mechanic, when the new clutch lining is about to be installed at the clutch housing, the clutch lining is wet or dipped in oil first, so that the clutch lining does not wear out quickly. If the clutch lining is not soaked with oil, when the motor is first turned on, the oil flow in the clutch housing can completely wet the clutch lining. If the clutch lining is still dry, the friction that occurs will erode the thickness of the clutch lining even if only slightly.
