I later spoke with a mechanic about it,,, he was of the opinion that big old dry clutches don't like to get real hot and can misbehave when they do,,, that was apparently why wet clutches were developed?,,, fwiw Idk.Kelly
Hmph. No clear answer. At least it's not uncommon.Back when I rode it to work, with the stock cable and clutch I don't recall this happening, but if it did it was never so bad and I rode it daily in 90*+ weather and rush hour stop-n-go traffic.
Robert's your mother's brother, you've answered your own questionPut the cable back on, what exactly was the problem you were trying to fix with the hydraulic one ?
Nothing. It's jewelry. I had to get rid of the brake master, and wanted the levers to match. So I found a set of used Brembos off of a wrecked Sport. <shrug> we'll see if it gets better or worse with time.
Wonder if he's seen a car clutch ? They seem to deal with stop start trafficOOPs forgot, you lot don't have cars with clutchesDry clutches work well , wet clutches actually very early in the piece, probably more to do with lubricating primary chains than anything else. Modern times, it's more likely noise that's the issue.I've had plenty of dramas with hot wet clutches too (some of them huge fun)
I have the exact same issue and I have a cable activated clutch. I too would like a fix. Brand new clutch and assorted parts.
Swoosh makes a good point. Also, I seem to recall the hydraulic clutch on my R1100S took some sort of oil rather than brake fluid. Perhaps a change of fluids is called for?
My old California II seems to work perfectly with my normal countryside rides. If I am stuck in traffic with many intersections and traffic lights, the clutch becomes very 'grabby' and does not fully disengage. The clutch was rebuilt with new parts, and most of the time it is very smooth ... except when hot. Cable free play adjustment is perfect, as well as the clutch arm position. I also now avoid riding in town.
reviving an old thread, just got back to london and started up my lemans 1000. I'm having the exact same symptoms as the OP and the others.I have a cable clutch.The clutch is only a few years old. Ain't surflex.Properly put together.Arm ain't bindng on anything, cable is good.F----ING ANNOYINGSomethings not right here.
