So, I have to ask: are all the 2012 model year CARC bikes a clutch spring time bomb?
No, it seems there was a small batch of rotten plates, most if not all of them went in Stelvios. By no means are all 2012's time bombs. Mine still had its original clutch when I swapped in the 1400 motor and it was fine. Sure it had the 'Stelvio Groan' but nothing ever went wrong with it and it had done 110,000Km plus.The thing to worry about more is whether the bike was built before the change to roller tappets!Pete
Its a work in progress. Other builders of larger capacity 8V's are having problems too. The issue is almost certainly a matter of crankcase volume. Once my Stelvio is mapped correctly we'll find if the 1400 bottom end architecture helps address the problem. My own feeling is that taking the engine out that much is really pushing the friendship but I have no conclusive evidence yet.Pete
1400's are prone to it too, although less so if thrashed mercilessly from new.
SMDL, There is a way to not have to drop the transmission or abuse a good dog. Just ride the second bike and forget about the troublesome one. You did say that it was reliable
Are you pulling apart a Stelvio?
I would replace the breather hoses that connect to the rear cam cap while everything is apart, they go way up front to under steering stem.
Just curious and asking within prejudice. What is the major or even mine differences between this clutch/pressure plate and most all the other major brands that this issue is mostly non existent?
My understanding is that this was related to a bad batch of clutches, and that the newer design doesn't have this problem.
