Clutch pressure rod problem, how frequent?
I am wondering if many people had the following problem. The tip of the clutch rod worn out. I was thinking my clutch was going bad because I was not able to launch properly at the drag strip but after reading a thread from "fordfasterr" here I realise that it could be the same problem show in the picture and it fact it was exactly that.
The image was taking from "fordfasterr" but it's exactly the same thing that happen to me with less material remove probably because of the low mileage of my bike. Look at the tip of the center rod, it's all worn out.
My bike is a 2005 and only have 10 000 KM (6,215 miles).
Who had or heard of this problem and witch bike year of zx10r it happens?
I know of 3 person now including myself with the same problem and my worry is that all are on 05 year and I am a bit scare that it may be related on another bad parts like the clutch cover dimension or other related part on the 05 model and if it is the case the problem may come back later.
