2005 Suzuki RMZ450 needs a new clutch basket! 31JAN2020
Clutch had gotten really grabby when letting during roll out. Didn't slip under load but when trying to use the clutch in technical terrain it had become unmanageable. Bike is 15 years old and it's the original clutch. Thought maybe it had something to do with going to a full synthetic type of oil from the blend I had been using. The clutch basket is badly notched (toast) and it now looks to have been more of a coincidence that it got really bad after the new type of oil. The basket is notched beyond any fix other than replacing it!
