A slipping clutch on April 20, 2009.
I mean come on, I JUST put a new battery in!
It's 50 in the morning and 70 in the afternoon and my clutch is going to start slipping now?
Okay, it's a 2005 with 22,000 on it and to be honest I ride the piss out of her. Speed shifting with the rice burners, 70 and 80 roll ons with Vettes and Vipers But it's efn APRIL? The clutch canít start slipping in like October? What the hell Adolf!
And you know, it's not like it MIGHT be something else, maybe just a few times thing and I can ease off and itíll go away. No dice baby. The clutch starts slipping and you KNOW it. Your heart just sinks, and when you get to your destination you get off and look at all that TUPPERWARE. Where is the friggin clutch on this damn thing!!
So you go in to work, start thumbing through posts. 2K at the dealer for a clutch job?! And youíre like yea, that's a job all right. What the hell Adolf!
So I am going to do it myself. I looked through the posts on lifts and decided to go with a Direct Lift Pro Cycle XLT Drop Tail. It looks to MSRP for $880, before negotiations.
My first question is if anyone is interested in a group buy for that lift? Check it out at:
If so then IM me please.
My second question is about manuals and tips. Which manual should I get to go through the clutch and valve adjustments? Also, I found a nice set of instructions on drilling the weep holes but nothing on a full on clutch replacement. Could someone please post a link, if they know of one?
Thirdly, anyone living in proximity to Little Rock that wants to participate in an LT clutch job feel free to IM me. I can promise all the beer you can drink and the opportunity to see an LT stripped down and fumbled through. I have never done one but I am going to.
I figure about 2 weeks to see if anyone bites on the group buy thing, plus a week to gather all the parts so I am looking at 3 or 4 weekends out.
I am going to try the clutch from
The turbo paw, will update after and all.
