Motorcycle Clutch
n: a device designed to connect the transmission of a motorcycle to the engine, which when properly adjusted will slip at high speed, drag at low speeds and make neutral impossible to find at stops.

Still, trying to find a happy medium in clutch plate pressure vs easy clutch pull, there are limitations to our, as with many, setup to accomplish both. Many have gone to hydraulic setups, and the other is an assisted clamping force built into the clutch itself using the engine’s torque to its advantage.

Had Yamaha incorporated the assist-slipper clutch into the Road Star, as they have with other models, (the 1,900cc bikes), we probably wouldn’t be having this conversation/thread.

I look at my R* as a cruiser and treat it as such, so I expect many miles of trouble free riding in the drivetrain department. That was Yamaha’s intent when they designed the clutch for ease of use. Many on here go 50,00 miles plus without a hitch in their clutch.

Treat her rougher than normal and expect the shortened life from which it will expose.


That's a really cool design. Reminds me of the wedge grips we use in tensile testing.. holds tighter as the load increases.

Wish we had that clutch in our roadies!
