    Default Bad Clutch basket?

    I've never seen a bad clutch basket. My clutch started Engaging really rough in first gear a few weeks ago. I took it apart today and found groves in the basket. Would like to see more pics of good and bad clutches.

    Here's the bad groves.

    Yeah it's worn good. Is the clutch kinda sticky? You can take a file and smooth them out, but that's a bandaid fix. The problem will come back.

    Yes the clutch is sticky. It would grab really rough hard when cold then it would get better after it warmed up. I Already took a file to it last night. It was pretty late to get a test run in but it did feel a lot better.

    there's a tolerance in that gap that needs to be maintained. do you know if all the springs were tightened correctly, where you able to feel the same pressure when you removed them? I swear I even seen shops do worse than just get the torque wrong on those springs

    Its def worn pretty good. Filing and deburing the edges will help smoothen the engagement and get you back on the road. At some point its gonna need to be replaced.
