Clutch wear a warranty item?
« on: January 25, 2018, 09:52:40 am »
I *think I might have some clutch wear.  Not technical at all, all I know is when you pull in the clutch, rev high and then let go the clutch I  can feel something split and a metal on metal feel under me and screeching sound.

If this is clutch wear,  will it be covered under warranty?   Bike's 7 months old, but 17k on the clock already.

If must pay, what kind of money are one looking at?

By your description I cannot even guess whether there is a clutch or other problem.  The more technical guys will know better.

Clutch wear is usually not a warranty item, but at only 17k km's you certainly have a case that it should be.  I believe a new clucth is around R8500.  No idea what the labour is.

Sorry, no idea how to describe it. lol.  Maybe drop by Marcus some time

Not a bother right now, it's only when I get the bliksem in for some idiot on his phone cutting me off and I pull the clutch and rev him awake and then let go the clutch.

Or when you stuck offroad and working yourself out.

Sickening sound. so a little worried.

GET TO YOUR DEALER, get it on record as a minimum.  8) :thumleft:
