    Out running errands on the xt225, felt rather spicy getting on the freeway and power shifted from 5th to 6th (something I rarely do, I'm nice to clutches never had to replace one ever on any of my motos dirt or street) and proceeded to have a SOLID 5 seconds of clutch slip and a good chunk of chatter at the end of its slip as it fully gripped.

    Bike has always had a very soft grab of the clutch, thought it was a characteristic but the more I ride it the more it seems like previous owners were not all that nice to the clutch. It shifts great when cold but I have noticed it gets chunky and really soft grabbing when warm as if metal discs are warped and the clutch drags just a little.

    Thought it might be the rotella t6 5w40 synthetic (even though I have never had any issues using this over decades of use in multiple motos....) so I just swapped for conventional 15w40 rotella T4 as a hail Mary.... When filling the bike back up you can see a few clutch plates n discs... They def look a little cooked on the edges.

    Needless to say a clutch rebuild is likely in my future. Haha

    Did a lot of running so I just got back home lol
    But here is the pic you asked for. I also couldn't find the style of snap rings I wanted so I settled with these from harbor freight got a few other things I'd been wanting for awhile plus a chair to scoot around on while working on bikes.


    Also off topic does anyone use a bread box?

    Get the snap ring started in the bore. (Hard corner flat side facing up).

    Then use a socket to gently tap it down in if your snap ring pliers can't make it down into the bore (this was my problem on the clutch master rebuild)

    I'll give it a shot but first dishes and pasta! Also is it normal for the master to be full of black gunk and corrosion?

    Like a literal box in the kitchen to put bread it? :confused: twist and tuck, throw it in the fridge (wife has celiac, we usually only have GF bread, and it lasts much longer in the fridge, surprisingly.)

    or is there some other definition of bread box I'm missing here? :anonymous:

    Oh yeah, brake fluid being hydroscopic loves to collect moisture in the low spots which causes all sorts of corrosion and gunk buildup paired with metal on metal rubbing in the master makes for nasty buildup. My clutch master on the super tenere was NASTY.... I should probably do the front brake master but I REALLY do not wanna bleed a full abs system, fluid is nice and fresh and lever is firm so I'll leave it be.

    Haha no you are right it's those bamboo box things for bread. As of late I stopped getting any store bought bread since it's been causing me issues but if I get frozen dough or make it my self I have no problems so I went and got a box so I can store it on the counter. Never kept it in the fridge thou
    Ah I gotcha ya mine had a lot of black sludge in it and crap so took a bit to clean it

    Full sunshine today for the first time in ages around here and temps around 50. Got out for about 165 miles hitting GLMC grand tour bonuses. With only 2 trips and slightly over 1 tank of fuel I already have finisher's status.

    Oil changed, air filter re oiled(will need cleaned tomorrow), and finally it has a rear brake again! The rebuild was tbh easy and so much cheaper at 20 bucks!
