Clutch life on a 1000cc sports bike

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by tim, Mar 4, 2009.

  1. Hi All,

    Was wondering how many k's you are getting for the clutch on a 1000cc sports bike?

    I changed mine at 35000 on the K1 gixxer and am about to change it again at 90000. So the 2nd set of plates has lasted 55000. Quite a difference between the two.

  2. does a blackbird count?

    180,000km on the original clutch when I sold it.

    Stop doing racing starts.
  3. every bike is different.

    Never done a clutch myself and have had some high k bikes.

    35 seems low. 55 is more reasonable.
  4. Thanks for your replies.. Yes I know I'm not easy on clutches. I'll see how many k's I get out of the new one. :) :)
