Shogun Clutch Spring and lining




Sliding clutch, delay of power, fuel consumption up. This are some of the reason the CLUTCH system of your shogun must be inspected, and in need of repairs.



This photo shows the internals of the right side crankcase cover of a manual transmission shogun. The release plate cover of the clutch spring has been removed to expose the 4 clutch spring, In order to remove the plate, you'll be needing the close wrench #10, two of them actually in order to counter the rotation of the clutch system when dismantling the release plate.



                                                                          

This is a closer view of the clutch spring, An OEM parts is fitted here, but there are other alternatives out in the market that differs in stiffness like KITTI racing clutch spring, as shown kitti


Making the clutch spring more stiff means extra performance on clutch grip thus improving torque and power but with the expense the life of your lining.



Other motorcycle enthusiast actually trying to replace 2 of the 4 spring with stiff ones to improve clutch grip with less effort on pressing the clutch lever, What they didnt know, it deformes the release plate and have an un even wear on the lining...Its better to replace 4 rather than two.

Hello Nathan, Based on your experience, how long is the LifeSpan of a Stock CSpring and lining takes? How many ODO reading? Thank you.

based on my overall experience, my shogun is 10 years old already last November 9, i have not change my lining and clutch spring and i am using Automotive oil for the last 9 years and have not used motorcycle oil ever since after. My odometer already reached the 99,999.9 mark and reset it already and now at 10,221.0 km (change my front sprocket to 16 teeth thus making the revolution of the odometer less 100 meters per 1 revolution thus my odometer is no longer in a factory mode)( and so i assumed at that 10 years my ACTUAL odometer reads almost 200,ooo.o kilometers more.

So again to practically answer your question? i have not change mine for the last 10 years and still at the very best of my motorcycle performance..still topping as if it is new. :)

just do your change oil routine and it will serve you more than 10 years or more, and by the way...love your motorcycle.

chi chan, It will not fit, too many parts will be removed from your engine, the crankshaft will be replaced, centrifugal will be removed, If you have access to a parts catalogue of our model, you will see the difference. and will cost you much than buying a second hand PRO version.
