Clutch issues again
So I guess im having clutch problems again... I just had my clutch replaced with an aftermarket one not to long ago maybe 1k miles on it iunno for sure. But after letting my bike sit for a week or so everything was fine before hand I started riding again and it seemed my clutch adjustment would change while riding and not hot to cold or cold to hot but just riding even after riding a while it would go back and forth. Some days perfectly fine other days it would be a pain in the rear.
I would have the lever pulled all the way in sometimes it would still be partly engaged sometimes it would be fine. Sometimes it was a pita to shift with the clutch other times not. But it seemed to get better after a while of riding. Like as the days went on it got better.
So my bike sat for probably three weeks now, I did a bit of racing and alot of riding the last time I rode it. Wheelies here and there everything was great holding fine.
Now I go to ride it tonight and my friction point feels way off, seems like the clutch wasn't engaging completely when I didn't have my hand on the lever. I adjusted it a little and the friction point felt alright I was able to get my play back in the lever all was well. Hard riding everything seemed to hold no problems that I noticed, but didn't try wheelies.
Later in the night no racing or anything just occasional bursts of spirited riding but when I tried to wheelie it wouldn't do it. Figured maybe tc was kicking my ass as it does that sometimes, tried a few other times and nope would just rev up hold it and come back down. Took tc off it would rev up a little longer and hold it then come down and then the bike would lift up from just power. I can't imagine it's spinning or id notice that id imagine. Even high speed runs and jolts it seemed to not slip.
Bike is lowered 1.5k" and this is ~70mph second gear. What could be the problem as it's very agitating. I don't see how it could be my clutch already again! I will try to mess with cable adjustment some more, try to figure out where it has to be to be completely engaged. Not sure if there's a guide for that?
