Guess I am just a CRAP rider then?
Got my LT back yesterday after two weeks off the road, clutch was burnt out, no leaks no apparent reason just severely worn, at 20,000mls and not even three years old.
Whilst stripped the clutch slave was changed as a precaution and gearbox output shaft seal (slight leak) and push rod. One curios thing, the tech said that the clutch had been getting VERY VERY HOT! as shown by the blueing to the pressure plate, spring plate, housing etc.
I have been riding bikes for 30 years and never had a problem before, am I doing something wrong, riding it or am I just supposed to polish and look at the LT, maybe I will have to start riding my softail more?
Anyway, back on the road, running like a dream, it might be me but the clutch and gear chamge seem slicker, lighter. easier. Going to start saving for the rear drive failure next!
