    Takegawa 148 clutch

    Hi guys

    Just wondering if there is anything I can do to help my clutch slipping
    Iv got takegawa 148 4valve crate motor so has Taki 5 speed and Taki clutch the motor has 3000klm
    On it and I find if iv give it a bit of a flogging and shift really guick at high rpm and jump on the throttle hard it will slip it doesn’t do it if I load it up in a high gear and rev it out just when I shift fast and power on hard I find if as soon as it goes to slip if I back of quickly and get back on it it’s ok.?

    Iv tried motul synthetic oil and mineral oil and both do it I’m wondering if I need different clutch springs or has anyone over come this problem any other way.?

    Cheers.

    Throw some new clutch plates in?

    Has it done it from New? Have you adjusted the clutch?

    I put heavier clutch springs in my big bike as after cam swapping I was getting a lot of slip - not sure if the same rules apply for Zs?????

    I don’t think they are adjustable so clutch springs might be the only way to go

    You can adjust it on the lever in case you got cable stretching
