Clutch issues?
Anyone going thru clutches?

Keefer keeps on saying the bike needs mineral oil to get the clutch to last decent, still fades some when getting hot. Just a thought, I have friends that ride red and they usually end up getting stiffer springs to the clutch also.

Yes.. I have tried every clutch Rekluse offers and now the Torque Drive setup. It’s better but I have a feeling it won’t last long. I run 39 ounces of Bel Ray Thumper oil also.

I had a ton of issues with my 2017 CRF450 clutch last year, steels burning up pretty quick and had a bunch of fibre plates breaking. I was running 1000ml of oil as per the manual and motul 10w40 semi synthetic. I changed up to about 1250ml of oil this year and haven't had any issues yet might even try what pete24 is saying about the 1350 and see how that works. I'm a local pro so I'm quite a bit harder on the clutch but I've never had the clutch issues till I got this Honda. Other than those issues the bike is amazing.
